Russians Poll for Duma

[ BBC Europe ] 4 Dec

Russians are voting in polls that will decide the shape of the lower house, or Duma, for the next five years.

While there are reports of violation of election laws, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who leads the ruling United Russia party, has accused foreign powers of meddling in election preparations.

Duma members have questioned why the foreign-funded organisation - whose name means "voice" or "vote" - is allowed to monitor Russian elections.
