Election fraud at record rates – this is how Putin succeeded in securing the presidency

87 million Russians voted, and 87% of them chose Putin. This is what the official statistics say. According to the Russian Election Commission, the turnout and Putin's victory reached record levels. But election observers who have followed several Russian elections say that what is hiding behind all these numbers is rather a record high level of election fraud.

The Kisling-Shpilkin method is available to everyone, and when election observers and independent Russian media reviewed the election results, they came to the same conclusion: that Putin's associates rigged nearly a third of the votes.
