    MOSCOW, March 15 - RIA Novosti. Head of the Mercator group Dmitry Oreshkin announced that Irina Khakamada and Nikolai Kharitonov tied for second place in Moscow and St. Petersburg in the presidential election of 2004 in Russia.

    "Against the background of Vladimir Putin's impressive victory in Moscow, Kharitonov and Khamada tied for almost all second places. The 'against all' candidate won only in some constituencies," Oreshkin said.

    According to him, Moscow's prestigious districts - the North-West, the South-West and the Centre - voted mainly for Khakamada. Kharitonov confidently finished second in the so-called "proletarian districts" of the capital.

    For their part, the old districts of Petersburg voted for Khakamada while Kharitonov won second place on the periphery of Russia's unofficial second capital.

    "Such a geographical basis proves that these are honest results. They have not been designed by anyone, it is life," Dmitry Oreshkin concluded.
