Russia's parliamentary polls held in full compliance with law: Russian embassy
It said Russia's ''Western partners'' traditionally do not recognise either objectivity of the election results or the country's electoral system as such.
The embassy issued a statement on the elections in view of what it said some media reports in India, mostly citing Western sources, criticising the polls.
''They have no doubts that our elections were conducted in full compliance with the provisions of the Russian and international law,'' the official said.
''By the way, there were 249 international observers from 59 countries, including India, and 10 international organisations to prove that. Today it is obvious - our detractors have failed to discredit the Russian electoral system,'' the spokesperson added.
