Such mass violations have led not only to the decision of disbanding the electoral Commission and the removal from office of the long head of the Moscow electoral Commission Irek Vildanov, but also to the cancellation of district elections and carry on the single voting day on September 18. However, supporters of Navalny said he would no longer participate in them and questioned the fairness of the upcoming elections all over Russia.
