"Mr Putin's supporters dismiss claims that his huge lead is a result of media manipulation. "The President has taken it upon himself to put the country in order," said Yury Borodin, 65, a pensioner who heads a team of 26 unpaid volunteers at the public information centre of Mr Putin's campaign in Moscow. "There is stability. Taxes are collected. Pensions and wages are paid. The state is in control of regions that were a law unto themselves five years ago."
Mr Putin's critics say that his consolidation of power has been achieved by installing a clique of former secret services agents and military men in the Kremlin."
