Russians protest parliamentary elections

| No Comments

Russian President Dmitri Medvedev ordered an investigation on Sunday into the country's recent parliamentary elections, according to CNN.

The announcement came after tens of thousands demanded the election be rerun, reported Reuters.

Reuters called the statement "a sign that the Russian leadership feels under pressure after the biggest opposition protests since Putin rose to power in 1999."

The election results, released Friday, placed United Russia in first place by 146 seats, according to CNN.
