At the beginning of the year, it was reported that the administration of the President of the Russian Federation intends to create a dozen new parties before the regional elections of 2020 and the state Duma elections of 2021. Most of them, the so-called “party of the TV show” not designed for serious and long-term performance, and are designed to create the illusion of competition and split votes of the protest electorate, particularly the supporters of the Communists. It is planned that these will be in the ballots in the Duma elections, but the Parliament will not pass.
One of such projects is “the Party of direct democracy”, which said the Director of product World of Tanks company Wargaming.net Vyacheslav Makarov.

The movement has already conducts organizational work in the Irkutsk region with the help of hired officials of the Kremlin political strategists.
In fact, the “party of the TV show” will exist only in the media, generating striking statements and the noise in the information agenda. However, if they manage to pass at least one legislative Assembly, they will be able to move into the state Duma without having to collect 200 thousand signatures in his support.

in addition, the intention to pass in the state Duma said the cousin nephew of the head of state, a former FSB officer and entrepreneur Roman Putin, who is going to create a party on the basis of the movement of “business People”. The businessman said that one of the tasks of the party can be fighting with imaginary representatives of the interests of the majority, while the country “needs a strong leader”, especially in the context of the global crisis.
the Roman Putin acknowledged that a particular political program, except support his relative, the President, had not. “The program will write the business people who work on the land, he said. – When we say “business” first and foremost we are talking about people, individual entrepreneurs and self-employed. We want to make concrete, rational suggestions to make life easier for business.”
