Last week, branches of United Russia (ER) in the DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions at regional conferences presented versions of the pre-election “people’s program” for the annexed regions. EP candidates talk about social guarantees, repair and construction of housing, restoration and development of housing and communal services infrastructure, etc.
Deputy Secretary of the General Council of the United Russia, Senator from the LPR Daria Lantratova said that most sections of regional programs are similar. At the same time, the programs of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions include “strong families” programs – United Russia plans to increase the social security of families with children, create additional opportunities for the development of children, and also allocate benefits for large and low-income families.
