The Kremlin has reportedly met in private and determined how it screwed up Moscow’s September elections

The Putin administration has reportedly acknowledged, at two private events, the mistakes made ahead of Moscow’s City Duma elections in September. Sources told the newspaper Vedomosti about two events that were closed to the public: a roundtable organized by the state pollster VTsIOM that included Putin staffers, and a seminar held by the administration itself for the political consultants who worked on regional elections.
