US concerned about Russia elections: Clinton

5th December 2011, Comments 0 comments

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that the United States has "serious concerns about the conduct" of Russia's parliamentary elections.

"We do have serious concerns about the conduct of the elections," Clinton told a press conference, citing a preliminary report by the OSCE about alleged attempts to stuff ballot boxes and manipulate voter lists.

She said she expected to be briefed after she arrives later Monday at OSCE headquarters in Vilnius.

"We are also concerned by reports that independent Russian election observers...were harassed and had cyber attacks on their websites," she said.
