The last elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation turned out to be the dirtiest in modern history.
During the three-day marathon, mass ballot stuffing was recorded in ballot boxes, the presence of dead souls in the lists was noted, the voters’ books were not stitched or numbered in places, observers were not allowed to familiarize themselves with the lists, photo and video filming was blocked, they were kicked out and even beaten.
Mass fraud was discovered in the interests of the ruling United Russia party. It is about identifying the loss of ballots that do not meet the interests of the ruling party, and vice versa, the emergence of ballots with pre-marked “for” United Russia.
Although United Russia celebrates a “clean” victory and claims to have achieved all its electoral goals in the presence of “roughness”, this is a dubious victory. The ruling party in 2021 received fewer votes than 5 years ago in Buryatia, Primorye, Yakutia, Khabarovsk Territory, Amur Region, Transbaikalia, Kamchatka, Chukotka and Sakhalin. United Russia lost not only the Far East, but also the center. Putinism was again depicted as a fake triumph, bringing it closer to its natural collapse.
