On Wednesday, October 5, Vladimir Putin signed laws on the entry of the DPR, LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into Russia.
… – Dmitry Sergeevich, can I continue the topic? Now, after four regions have entered the Russian Federation, does this mean that elections of State Duma deputies from these territories will be announced in the near future, which is logical to assume, and representatives in the Federation Council will be appointed? – with such questions on the day the presidential decrees were issued, the journalist of Komsomolskaya Pravda turned to the official representative of the Kremlin. – So far, these subjects of our Federation are not represented in the parliament, although, at least, the voters of the DPR and LPR have already voted for our deputies in the elections to the State Duma.
“I can’t answer these questions now,” Peskov said. – Of course, now there is a rather intense process of adaptation of these territories – both to our legislative environment, and to the legal environment, and to the departmental environment, and so on …
Of course, this will take time. given the tense situation.
Of course, it will be difficult to do this, but this is the … path that we will need to calmly, methodically all go through.
– And on the same subject. According to the latest VTsIOM data, 77% of Russians trust the results of the referendums that have taken place. At the same time, 75% have a positive attitude towards the accession of new territories. But why, in your opinion, these data do not reach the level of support for the president? And there, we know, almost 90%. Is there some kind of contradiction here?
Here’s how the spokesperson responded to my question:
– I don’t know, I don’t see any contradiction here.
I think, let’s leave this bread to sociologists, let them explain the results of their research.
