MOSCOW, September 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Sergei Mitrokhin, the leader of the opposition party Yabloko, said on Sunday he did not rule out his party might not recognize the results of elections to the Moscow City Duma (legislature).
The final decision on whether to recognize the polling results or not would be taken on September 17, Mitrokhin told a news conference. “The Moscow Mayor’s Office simply prohibited placing our billboards during the election campaign,” he said.
“It is a major factor in our assessment of these elections. We will hold a meeting of the regional council (on September 17) that will make a decision on our attitude towards these elections, whether to recognize them or not. To my mind, this is a decisive argument not to recognize the elections, regardless of their results.
