The popularity of “United Russia” falls. In less than two weeks before the election, pollsters counted the party in power support only 31% of Russians. Dmitry Medvedev’s rating has also dropped to 48%, and his careless statements of the most positive impact on the traditional mindset of the electorate, “Edra” – pensioners and state employees. In this situation, United Russia decided to seek the protection of Vladimir Putin: unlike other politicians, his approval rating stands like a rock, and currently stands at 82%.
At a meeting with the President in the Kremlin invited the most recognizable (and passing!) members of the Duma factions and members of the election campaign. In the list was the speaker of the state Duma Sergey Naryshkin, the Secretary General of the “Edra” Sergey Neverov, the Chairman of the security Committee Irina Yarovaya, the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, the figure skater Irina Rodnina, the Prosecutor of the Crimea Natalia Polonskaya, the son of the famous actor Sergei Boyarsky, TV presenter Peter Tolstoy and Yevgeny Revenko. Journalists, are not yet accustomed to the new role, the cameras studiously avoided. But Natalia Polonskaya, which is so thin that now can easily compete with Angelina Jolie and the British Duchess Catherine, the press attention was not to get out.
– Rating for your game falls, what are you going to do? – asked her.
– The charge of patriotism in the Crimea cannot be reduced. People understand that Crimea has retained its peaceful sky, the position of Vladimir Putin and leading political forces – Poklonskaya clearly had no doubt that her compatriots will vote correctly, of course, if you reach the polling stations.
“Unfortunately, many people underestimate the situation, thinking that all will remain, so you can not go to the polls – she complained – This is, of course, a wrong position – just like there is nothing left. Must come and support.”
The question of whether dreams Poklonskaya with its high visibility on the office of the President, the Prosecutor called provocative. But still decided not to hide from the public his main dream: “I dream that with God’s help, to become a reliable protection and support of our Motherland.”
The son of actor Mikhail Boyarsky Sergei, apparently, could not boast the optimism of the previous speaker. “In the Leningrad region people are thinking, it is difficult to predict how they will vote” – he admitted.
– Well, how do you convince them to vote for “United Russia”?
– We say that our party was created by the President. And that we alone take responsibility, not just a promise – repeated memorized slogans boyar, Jr.
Then, finally, the door opened and the crowd went Vladimir Putin, in the morning already had time to visit in Uzbekistan, and Dmitry Medvedev, who immediately after the meeting was supposed to go on tour around the country.
Although all participants as equals, seated in a circle, the meeting format was more like a reporting meeting. Or delivery school exam – not only in the form of the exam, and the old fashioned way.
Each of United Russia was a “ticket” with your question, which, in the opinion of the party, had been interested not so much the President, acting in the traditional role of the examiner, how many ordinary voters.
One spoke about the resettlement of people from dilapidated housing, the other about the construction of social infrastructure, the third – about the may decrees, the fourth – about a pension, the fifth – about the road…
Dmitry Medvedev drew attention to the landscaping of the yards: “This space should be inviting and a fun place to chat and relax”
– Domino cut? – said Putin.
– Domino, too it is necessary to cut in comfortable conditions, – parried the LADIES. In his opinion, the project “Our yard” of the regional should be Federal. This, of course, require additional funding. “But this is a very important unifying theme – in fact more than 2/3 of the population of our country live in apartment buildings”, – he explained the political implication for future expenses.
Vladimir Putin said that he certainly would not want to look like the cuckoo and the cock, praising the Prime Minister, but for the elimination of queues in kindergartens Medvedev just have to say thank you:
– Medvedev said that he personally will control and finished off the situation.
– However, there are nuances! – what Putin said, By the standards we have to have 11 children for each caregiver, and in some regions twice.
But to the perinatal centres from the President, as it turned out, no complaints. Moreover, their visit makes GDP an unconventional and rather bold thought.
“There are such conditions, that he would be begotten, if, of course, could – suddenly he said.
Despite the tight schedule of the last days (recall that Putin just returned from the G20 summit in China, where he held a series of important talks), the President was in good spirits and, in contrast to United Russia, it seems, is not worried about the results of the upcoming elections.
After listening to a long monologue Irina Spring, calling to protect the manufacturer from extortion retailers that do not want to execute the resulting amendments to the law On trade, the President joked:
– You say “manufacturer”, imagine the bull-manufacturer.
But in itself a complaint of Spring found just. “The authorities will prevent attempts by retailers to recoup losses from the amendments to the law through fines and other payments”, – assured the President.
Then the conversation with the United Russia party predictably went on pensions. Vladimir Putin said that he fully endorses the government’s decision about lump sum payment in the amount of 5 thousand rubles. on the one hand, such payment will not ruin the budget of the next years (2017-2019), and on the other support people. Moreover, it will receive all retirees, including employees.
– I want to be clear: neither in the Ministry of economy and the Ministry of Finance or other agencies no evil-minded people who want to make some stuff and something not to recast our citizens! – assured the President, Just work there are very professional people who think about the consequences of each decision.
In other words: when there is no money to keep accounts to everyone… Not just seniors.
At the end of the meeting, the microphone finally got into the hands of Natalia Polonskaya. Relying on the charge of patriotism, she decided not to voice any important for Crimean voters the problem or ask a question to the President.
I’m not even dreamed of and never thought this would happen, and I will be able to fulfill the requests of our common people and to say “Thank you, Vladimir Vladimirovich, have you!”, – announced the purpose of his speech, the Prosecutor – Thank you for our Homeland back, we can talk in Russian and that our kids go to school and learn our history – the glorious history of our Motherland – Russia…
However, GDP in two years, seems to be tired of endless gratitude and sentimentality. In Crimea there are problems and they must be solved, he said Poklonski. And immediately gave United Russia which will pass in the Duma of the next convocation, instructions to control the construction of roads due to perennial underfunding began to fail, and the program of restoration of monuments.
Saying goodbye to the participants of the meeting, the President expressed the hope that the parting will not be long: “I Hope that the “backbone” of your team will continue in the next Parliament, so we can with you to move on and fix our priorities!”.
