Democracy and Class Struggle says Russia has seen many changes since 1990's some for the better but the election system is as managed as ever - so no change here.
"I will tell you right away that I am absolutely convinced that the incumbent president has won. I am absolutely convinced that his victory took place.
But what was done by the officials, the authorities, including the media, during the pre-election campaign allows me to say that these were dirty elections.
These were elections that did not meet the international standards,” Grudinin the Communist Candidate for President told a press conference.
