We already have relevant plans”, – said the Chairman of the Communist party.
“Almost three major opponents have been defeated by Valentin Konovalov. People cast their ballots for the person who was able to take a punch and keep a promise as well as being absolutely open.

G. A.

Their positive experience allows us to develop and consolidate our society.
