United Russia plans to recruit participants in Ukraine war as candidates for elections – ISW

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party intends to recruit Russian military personnel who have served in Ukraine as candidates for elections in 2023 and 2024, likely in an effort to establish itself as the definitive pro-war party in Russiaю

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said this in a Russian offensive campaign assessment for April 15, according to Ukrinform.

“The Kremlin likely aims to use candidates who have served in Ukraine as the public face of the United Russia party in upcoming elections to court the support of military constituents and their family members and to establish United Russia as the definitive political party for the pro-war movement,” the report said.

According to ISW analysts, the Kremlin is likely aiming to co-opt military personnel to support its ongoing effort to curry favor with the pro-war Russian ultranationalist community without fulfilling the community’s extreme demands.

  1. A country more focussed on destruction than construction will never prosper, the ruling elite will always consider the ordinary people to be no more than slaves and cannon fodder.

    The shithole will continue to devolve and descend, setting a new low, becoming the northern hemisphere first fourth world country.

    We will probably never heard about the famine and mass deaths to come, once the curtain yet again descends, this time the security will be total.

  2. With some luck and God’s will, there won’t be any military personnel capable of running for office as they will all be dead or have traumatic brain injury. Sounds so awful to wish someone, anyone, such evil tidings but the orcs deserve it
