Russian elections: How democratic are they?

In Russia, ahead of this week’s parliamentary and local elections, many opposition candidates have been prevented from running, and some forced to flee.

Our Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg travelled to Siberia and Bulgaria to meet some of the politicians barred from the ballot.

Filmed and edited by Matthew Goddard
