turkey's prime minister tayyip erdogan seems to have won a third term in office his ruling justice and development party claimed victory with fifty point two percent of the vote but it fell short of gaining enough seats to call for a referendum on a new constitution the main opposition party the people's republican party took twenty six percent of the ballot on earlier pledged changes to the constitution to improve basic rights and freedoms. there's a festive atmosphere here in moscow and across russia as the country marks twenty one years since it declared sovereignty an impressive firework display lit up moscow's sky the day also marks the country's first free elections which resulted in a victory for reformist president boris yeltsin in one thousand nine hundred one truly afterward the soviet union officially collapsed but his arteries and we're all going to have never reports even today the memories of the bumpy road to democracy are still fresh in many people's minds. twelve nineteen.

8:27 pm
surveys showed that as the anniversary of the election approached to remember and even fewer care things being made i don't have any emotions about it i did vote for you all to nan but i'm far less political now. i voted but i can tell you these are all just politicians games they have nothing to do with me. it's not surprising that those who lived through the difficult times did not want to celebrate this occasion but hopefully the next generation will truly appreciate the historic significance of this moment and of yeltsin as of no russia's first president himself remains unappreciated with only one in five saying to have a positive attitude towards him many outside of russia said at the even today it's the world is not perfect and some inside the country so do they still yearn for the soviet union but one thing is very hard to argue against as a result of these changes twenty years ago russians are wealthier and more personal
