Corruption fears ahead of Russian vote

New poll monitoring group hopes to combat electoral fraud in upcoming presidential ballot.

    Just six weeks before the Russian presidential election, a new opposition group has sprung up.

    The League of Voters is hoping to prevent fraud in the March vote by co-ordinating election monitoring.

    It is led by a roundtable of high-profile public figures, including journalists, novelists and performers.
