I think that this campaign will also get it, ”Pamfilova said during a speech at the Territory of Meanings forum.

The CEC chairman pointed out that Western countries allocated a lot of money in order to control “every mote and keep the elections under the hood as a lever of influence.” Having the goal of bringing their politicians to the State Duma, who will be led from there and influenced them like puppeteers.

Pamfilova stressed that Russia has experience of being “under such pressure and endless criticism.”

“Abroad, it was constantly imposed and replicated that our elections are supposedly always undemocratic, not free,” added the chairman of the CEC.

In Russia, on September 11, 2022, a single voting day will take place. Direct voting will elect 14 governors, deputies of six legislative assemblies and the City Duma of 12 administrative centers.
