September 20, 2021 -
O partido Rússia Unida do Presidente Putine conquistou uma maioria
clara no Parlamento apesar da quebra de apoio e alegações de fraude.
Russia’s United Russia party, which supports President Vladimir Putin, has won a decisive majority in the country’s parliamentary elections, despite a fall in support.
Putin’s party claimed victory within hours of polls closing on Sunday evening, in an election which saw the president’s most vocal critics barred from even running.
With 99.7% of votes counted, the results show United Russia on nearly 50%, followed by nearest rival, the Communist Party on 19%.
Russia’s electoral commission has rejected claims of widespread voter fraud.
