Plastic instead of brass are the letters on the plates of the offices of deputies of the state Duma of the new convocation. And, by coincidence, more just decided to buy the letters “E”, “P”, “R”, “S”, “T” (28 each).

Manager of the President of the Russian Federation announced a tender on purchase of new signs for the classrooms of the State Duma and 600 letters that will be used to “collect” the names of their new inhabitants. Kremlin business executives have decided at this time to save: last year for GD they bought the brass letters, that plastic. Moreover, their use will be easy because they are based adhesive (double sided tape). Letter height 20 mm, thickness 3.2 mm will be in two colors – glossy gold and black, and the same font is Arial Narrow Bold.
It is interesting that the employees of GD calculated how much about what letters they need. Less likely (9-10 pieces) will be “Zh”, “sh”, “CH”, “uh”, “Ya”, “Yu”. However, what convinced us in the state Duma, this does not mean that the candidates whose names have the letters, you’re less likely to win elections. Just traditions and peculiarities of the Russian language in the name some letters are used more often, others less.
