UPDATE1: Interesting, now the BBC is not changing, but adjusting, its tune - it says that according to many exit polls the "United Russia" party of Putin is suffering losses. Nevermind that the kind of rating this "loosing" Party would be considered as a stunning victory by any Western politician, in particular after 11 years in power. The BBC is still hammering the "fraud" line, so I suspect that the losses to the "United Russia" are not quite what the BBC's bosses were hoping for. But even if they turn out bigger than expected, don't expect the BBC to change its tune and speak about a "triumph for democracy". Basically, and no matter what, these elections will be used to further escalate the anti-Russian campaign of the Brits (and, their masters, of course).
UPDATE2: First preliminary results are in:
United Russia: 47,34%
Just Russia: 13.36%
LDPR (Zhirinovsky): 13,34%
other 3 parties all under 5%
No biggie here: United Russia did loose some but has still twice the votes of the next party, the Communists, which I think are doing very well (to my dismay). Just Russia has achieved a good score, in particular for a moderately pro-Western party, while the LDPR will be disappointed and the pro-Western parties are still in limbo.
UPDATE3: at (22:27 Eastern Time, with 92,18% of votes counted)
