Putin Party holds majority after Russian elections

In Russia, volunteers are busy counting votes. There were elections in the country this weekend. So far, it seems that President Putins party has won. And thats not a surprise.

74 percent of the vote has already been counted. President Putins party, United Russia, has 49 percent of the vote so far, making it the biggest party. Many Russians think thats why theres little change in the country.


According to some Russians, the elections have not gone fair. They dont think its been properly controlled. On social media, videos show casing that looks like someones cramming multiple voices in a ballot box. They also think online voting didnt go well.

According to correspondent Iris de Graaf, who works for the Youth News in Russia, it is no surprise that the United Russia party has received so many votes.
