Russia local elections: Winners and losers | DW News 4.5
Russians have cast their ballots in local elections that were preceded by weeks of anti-government protests. News agencies say Vladimir Putin's United Russia party is facing major losses in the capital Moscow.
But despite flagging support, parties tied to the ruling United Russia have retained their majority in Moscow, local media says. Protests and the exclusion of opposition candidates put the poll under intense scrutiny. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny had called on Russians to vote tactically to block candidates from United Russia after some opposition candidates were banned from running. The election was marked by low voter turn-out.

In the 21st century lowsy goverments should be overtrown in a soft way ( with a vote ) or in the hard way ( with riots and revolution if required ) we had enough of dictators of any kind and any flag.
People must get into their heads that unless you fight not only a miserable life is guaranted but the country development suffer too, with not only widespread poverty but also future insecurity.Russia is not a mess, its a poor country mess.
