Russia's election commission Thursday rejected fiery ultranationalist Vladimir V. Zhirinovsky's application to run for president, saying he failed to report all his assets. Zhirinovsky, whose erratic behavior and hectoring statements in parliamentary sessions have made him widely visible, had not been expected to perform well in the March 26 balloting in which acting President Vladimir V. Putin is the clear favorite. He said he would appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.
