Early results: Ruling party winning Russian parliament vote

MOSCOW — Early results on Sunday showed Russia’s ruling United Russia party winning in the parliamentary election amid reports of election violations and visible voter apathy in the country’s two largest cities.

Less than 7 percent of the ballots were counted by 9 p.m. (1800 GMT, 2 p.m. EDT), showing United Russia getting about 44 percent of the vote, with the Liberal Democrat Party trailing with 18 percent of the vote. The results are likely to change as votes in the west of Russia are counted.
