Putin wins Russian election - "the most dishonest election in the history of modern Russia”?

At least according to Liberal politician Boris Nemtsov …

There is said to have been “biased media coverage during the campaign, overt government support for Putin’s United Russia party and numerous irregularities during voting had skewed the outcome.” (according to Protected content

I have some Russian friends, and they agree with this point of view, I’m not so sure.. I think it’s more a question of there not being a lot of choice (who else to vote for?) “United Russia had won 64.1 percent of votes, nearly six times as many as the nearest challenger, the Communist party.”

What do you think? Were there "irregularietes" or was everything democratic and fair?
