Reports of ballot-stuffing, vote-buying and intimidation in Sunday's Russian parliamentary election have poured in from dozens of regions, independent election monitors said.


The alleged fraud, which threatens to tarnish the victory of President Vladimir Putin's United Russia party, ranged from detaining observers to offering gifts in exchange for a pro-Putin vote. (Reuters)
