Russians “deserve free and fair elections and the ability to choose among a group of candidates representing a diverse set of expressions,” Patel said.

Russians also “deserve access to impartial information to help them choose the leadership that they so desire and help them determine the future of their country,” he said.

“That was clearly not the case in these elections, which were neither free nor fair.”

The US and Russia have not been in good terms since Putin ordered the invasion and attack of Ukraine in February 2022.

Apart from the condemnation of the election by US, European allies have also questioned the conduct of the election in Russia.
