MOSCOW, February 29 (Itar-Tass) — Presidential candidate Vladimir Putin urged the Opposition to refrain from using "dirty tricks" during the election.
"We know that some are preparing to use techniques to confirm election fraud. They'll throw in /ballot papers/, they will control and then make accusations, all by themselves - we see it and know this already," Putin said at a meeting with his election agents and representatives of the all-Russia People's Front on Wednesday.
"It is necessary to fight; we'll respect any point of view; we're urging everybody to act within the legal framework and by legitimate means," he added.
