This showed the latest data from the Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) on Monday.

Communist Party candidate Nikolai Kharitonov is in second place with 4.31 per cent.

Vladislav Davankov from Russia’s New People Party received 3.83 per cent of the votes, and Leonid Slutsky, head of the Liberal Democratic Party, has secured 3.21 per cent of the votes.
