Editor’s Note: Ex-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is acting as an agent for the globalists, pushing their interventionalist mindset by calling to declare Russia’s latest election results as ‘null and void’. Interestingly, there were no such calls of election fraud by globalists against the US, where well-documented crimes took place during US Presidential elections in both Florida 2000, and Ohio 2004. What should be of greater concern to Gorbachev and the world at large, is that Russia’s Communist Party took 20% of the vote – a huge leap from previous results, and their largest gain since the fall of the Soviet system some 20 years ago.

Russian authorities should annul the parliamentary vote results and hold a new election, the ex-Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has urged, as popular indignation grows over alleged election fraud.
Thousands of Russians have rallied in Moscow and St Petersburg in the past two days, facing off against tens of thousands of police and interior ministry troops. Hundreds of protesters have been detained in both cities.
Gorbachev told the Interfax news agency that authorities must hold a fresh election or deal with a rising tide of discontent.
Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party won less than 50% of Sunday’s vote, a steep fall from its earlier two-thirds majority, according to preliminary results. But opposition parties and international observers said the vote was marred by vote-rigging, including alleged ballot-box stuffing and false voter rolls.
