This is how Russia ‘votes’. Recapping the latest round of managed democracy

Russia held elections in more than 20 regions last Sunday, September 13. Once again, this important democratic hurdle turned out to be a mere formality: none of the Kremlin’s candidates lost their gubernatorial races; the Communists and other mainstream political parties played their role as extras in this drama; the anti-Kremlin opposition, for the most part, didn’t even participate in the elections; and Alexey Navalny’s so-called “Democratic Coalition” lost its one race in Kostroma. Meduza recaps what you need to know about Russia’s elections this past weekend.
