Some experts say the move to live-stream activity around polling stations serves as a strong statement to bloggers and the Internet-savvy who played an important role in whipping up dissent after the disputed ballot preserved a narrow majority for Putin's United Russia in the Duma.Yet skeptics say the camera initiative will fall far short as there are other ways to cheat.The sum for the project is almost twice as much as the total amount spent by the elections commission on the State Duma elections.
But Yelena, a Novgorod resident and a state employee in her 40s, said she had doubts over the transparency of the election — even with the installation of cameras — as officials will continue to pressure government workers to vote as a bloc.

"It is symbolic that this takes place in Novgorod, which we all associate with Veche democracy," he said.
