THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION ABOUT THE ATTACKS ON THE PARTY AND THE ROLE OF THE MASS-MEDIA IN THE ELECTORAL RACE

Nowadays modern mass-media has completely lost its primary informational function being transformed  into an instrument of  propaganda very much effective  for control of public relations as well as for elimination of political competitors.

Practically 99% of the MSM in the Russian Federation, including so called “independent” ones, submit themselves to the authorities.

Increase of demands initiated by Roskomnadzor and appearance of new articles in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation have led to massive internal censorship of journalists and mass-media.

There is a list of so called prohibited “safe words”, including for example names of national or regional leading politicians which use is allowed only by approval of editor-in-chief or appropriate supervisor. It’s quite obvious that the  CPRF is number 1 on the list considering the result of the drawing of places in the ballot voting paper where the CPRF is at the top of the voting list.

So far, we are still getting a great scope of information from regions about an assistance rendered to the United Russia party by regional and municipal administrations in propagation with use of governmental and municipal  mass-media  and information resources as well as  assistance in holding meetings with voters.

Campaign coverage executed by Mass media is extremely uneven according to the data obtained from the monitoring organisations. Airtime for the “United Russia” activity given by the federal TV channels is greatly bigger  than of all other parties combined.

The latest data shows that the “United Russia” surpassed the aggregate indicators of all other parties by 1.7 times: “United Russia received 90.8 minutes, the “Liberal Democratic Party” – 16.9 minutes, “New People” – 12.7 minutes, the “Communist Party of the Russian Federation” – 10, 7 minutes, the “Just Russia – For the Truth” – 7 minutes, and the “Party of Pensioners” – 3.6 minutes only. All other parties were either not mentioned at all (“RPSS”, “Communists of Russia”) or were mentioned in total less than a minute for the whole week.

Federal media uses all means to denigrate the image of the CPRF and its members hyping the customised negative information from dubious sources, while positive information is deliberately distorted or ignored.

Dissatisfaction with a policy pursued   by the “Party in power’s” has increased the CPRF rating and resulted in another surge of black PR against the Left, who were accused of preparing a new “Maidan”. We are here talking about the authorised (!) meeting of Moscow CPRF candidates for State Duma, headed by Gennady Zyuganov with the voters on Tverskaya street on August 26.

Continuous attacks on some popular CPRF candidates, namely Pavel Grudinin, a serious opponent to the government with his almost 9 million votes in the last presidential elections, led to his exclusion from the Party electoral list. Attempts to challenge the Central Electoral Commission’s decision through the courts are deliberately delayed.

Nevertheless the CPRF continues fighting against injustice and lawlessness. Under the same pretext Secretaries of the CPRF CC S. Obukhov and V.Solovyov, were deprived from the right to participate in the last elections. The former General Prosecutor Skuratov was excluded from the Party list in Buryatia, because of the omission of the word “Professor” in applying documents. He appealed   to the ECHR, which ruled in his favor.

Irkutsk Governor Sergey Levchenko  has doubled the budget in four years from 96 to 213 billion rubles. He reduced illegal logging, forced the local oligarch Deripaska to pay taxes in full scope, and supported public enterprises. The efficiency of regional economy has resulted in his resignation and imprisonment of his son, after demonstration of 150 negative TV spots about him were shown on TV. Still no investigation is on the way.

Valery Bykov, CPRF candidate from Kamchatka was sentenced to 9 years imprisonment on a fabricated case and released only half a year later.

The duplicate candidates, namesakes, are nominated against the CPRF with the only goal to confuse the voters. For the same purpose several small so-called communist parties have been fabricated.

All  the CPRF complaints about violations of the law remain unanswered.

All of the above mentioned “tricks” finally discredit both the electoral system as well as the government.

The imperialist plans of Turkish bourgeoisie

In recent decades imperialist plans of Turkish bourgeoisie have been transforming  into neo-Ottomanism and pan-Turkism and become an essential geopolitical factor in  the post-Soviet territory. Ideas with  deep roots coming from the past are now in demand by the Turkish bourgeoisie as an instrument for promoting imperialist ambitions within the boundaries of the former USSR and in other countries.

The CPRF helps Novorossiya in any circumstances.

88-й гуманитарный конвой ушел в Новороссию

Since the beginning of conflict in Novorossiya (the Republics of Donbas – the LPR and DPR) the Communist Party has been continuously providing them with full support, dispatching  humanitarian convoys with necessary items of supply.

The previous week the 88th convoy bound for the Republics from Russia. Despite the difficult situation with the COVID 19 throughout the world, the CPRF keeps on rendering assistance to fighting Donbas.

Convoys traditionally start in Moscow getting contribution of regional and municipal CPRF organizations while moving through the country towards Donbas.

This humanitarian campaign usually involves communist-oriented enterprises, such as  the Lenin state Farm headed by Pavel Grudinin;  Moscow region state farm of Dashkovka; the People’s enterprise of Zvenigovsky  and many others. The Academy of Sciences helped with books and urban administrations of Moscow region provided food supply.

The multi-ton trucks were loaded with cereals, pasta, canned meat, vegetables and fish, groceries, vegetables, hygiene products, medicine, construction materials, clothes and shoes. It is a matter of honor for the CPRF to support Donbas, comrades, friends  and those in trouble with all necessary stuff.

Our brothers in the South – East of Ukraine are waiting for this supply staying in trenches to defend the “Russian world”. Our common ancestors forged the Victory in 1945, which anniversary we celebrate this year. This was our common Victory over fascism. We have our common past. Nowadays we should help each other fighting for our common prosperous future.

The common residents of Donbas are in a great need of support and the Communist Party is trying to help them against all odds regardless getting reputation bonuses,  just from the open heart.

So far the Communist Party is the only organization rendering regular help and the residents of Donbas are aware that they can always count on us.
