Yael Eisenstat says the apparent removal of a Navalny-aligned app in Russia by Google and Apple raises a lot of questions. “They took down the app while continuing to let the incumbent continue to use their platforms, and that is 100% tipping the scales.”
In Russia, voting for the country's parliament has begun. International OSCE monitors will not be observing the elections for the first time in almost thirty years. According to observers, the ruling United Russia party is aiming for a solid outcome despite polling at an all-time low of approximately 30% in recent polls.
