FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Russia votes in parliament election without main opposition • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
President Vladimir #Putin on Thursday urged Russians to vote in parliamentary #polls this week in which most vocal #Kremlin critics have been barred from running in an unprecedented #crackdown. The run-up to the State Duma ballot has been marred by a sweep of dissenting voices and pressure on independent media, beginning in January with the arrest of Putin’s most prominent critic Alexei #Navalny.
