Central Election Commission head Vladimir Churov said in Kazan on February 12 that results from research that he commissioned focused on the electoral systems of five countries.
Based on those results, he claimed that in terms of providing information, support, and openness, Russian elections are much better organized than in the other countries in the study.
Churov said: "We are top of the list and beat out Peru, Ukraine, Germany, and the United States."
Based on what you might ask?
Churov said that the official Russian Election Commission website has far more information on it than any of the other countries' official websites.
Churov said a total of 32 different criteria were used in the research, though he did not elaborate on other issues studied.
