Dmitry Medvedev, Russia's president, vowed to investigate parliamentary election results after widespread protests across the country against Vladimir Putin, the man in charge of the party that won 50 percent of the vote.
Up to 50,000 people protested in Moscow Saturday, according to the Guardian. The people were said to be disgusted, and accused Putin and his party of fraud.
The Telegraph reports that many people are frustrated because Medvedev's investigations have historically been ineffective.
Medvedev also took to Facebook to denounce the protest, a move that backfired, according to the Telegraph.
