There are clear indications of the deterioration of democracy that can be seen in the US elections compared to the progressive Russian democracy.
The Russian electoral system today is one of the most advanced in the world, including in terms of legislation.
It doesn’t even occur to Russia to allow something similar to what is happening now in the American elections (battle of fakes, dirty techniques, mutual insults, accusations, and slanders).
A pro-Kremlin narrative about Russian superiority, in this case, about the superiority of Russia's electoral system.
Russia has been widely accused of having little political plurality. One of the most valuable weapons in the Kremlin's arsenal is its power to control who can run - and indirectly guiding their campaign. Moscow “has tried to create the semblance of competition”, says The Times, allowing other candidates to take part, whilst the more vocal anti-Putin voices are quickly pushed out of the race.
