The Communist Party’s presidential candidate Gennady Zyuganov who was trailing far behind Vladimir Putin in the Russian presidential election on Sunday condemned the vote stating that he did not consider the election "legitimate, fair or transparent."

Gennady Zyuganov said: "We do not recognize the election. We do not consider it legitimate, fair or transparent. And in saying this, I am telling you my official opinion. I don’t see any sense in congratulating anyone with this type of election, where everyone ends up a loser."
