OSCE Reports 'Numerous Procedural Irregularities' In Russian Vote

President Vladimir Putin's ruling United Russia party won the September 18 State Duma elections by a landslide, according to official results. But the OSCE's Ilkka Kanerva said Russia's democratic commitments were challenged by restrictions on fundamental freedoms. (Reuters video)
