The British Foreign Secretary condemned the results and said that the sham election underlines the “depth of repression” across Russia.

Lord David Cameron said that the elections “starkly underline the depth of repression under President Putin’s regime.”

The Foreign Secretary said, “Putin removes his political opponents, controls the media, and then crowns himself the winner.

“This is not democracy.”

He said, that there’s been “widespread reports of electoral violations,” and any potential opponent who spoke of anti-war views was “swiftly disqualified.”

“With only three Kremlin-approved challengers, the outcome of this election was never in any doubt,” Lord Cameron added.
