Russian presidential election not fair - Grudinin
MOSCOW. March 19 (Interfax) - Presidential candidate from the Communist Party and patriotic forces Pavel Grudinin has labeled the past electoral campaign as the dirtiest in the post-Soviet space at the current stage.
"It is so far premature to comment. Let's wait for 90% [of processed ballots]. It is clear for now that the election was not fair," Grudining told journalists.
The election "was the dirtiest in the post-Soviet space at the current stage," he said.
"Regretfully, [opposition politician Alexei] Navalny was right. One can vote two or three times, and there are such examples in the Moscow region," Grudinin said.
"One thing is clear. Despite the poured dirt, the election took place decently," he said.
