“Russia's political space is alive and therefore unpredictable to the end.”

Experts believe that this year the Duma campaign is influenced by previously unheard of factors

The Expert Institute for Social Research (EISS) organized a round table with sociologists and political scientists “In the goal.” alignment in the future State Duma “. This time, due to the close end of the election campaign, the organizers of the meeting invited the maximum number of sociologists to the discussion. And they, in addition to the current evaluations, also provided predictions of the voting results, although they provided them with serious reservations.

The main caveat was that no confident predictions could be made in the current elections, as none of the methods used could take into account all the factors that could seriously affect the outcome. So, if we can talk confidently in general about the places that its participants will take in the election race, then about the fundamental details, such as whether the winner in the State Duma will win a constitutional or simple majority, and whether the most successful of the newcomers will be able to form their own faction. : we can only talk about some “corridors of opportunity”.

Speaking of these reservations, the head of the EISS expert board, Gleb Kuznetsov, pointed out the fact that he testifies to the fact that the Russian political space is alive and active processes are taking place in it. That is why it is difficult, unlike something dead, to make the finals – everything is completely predestined there.

Mikhail Mamonov, head of the political analysis practice at VTsIOM, was the first to present his data. This is what the parties' evaluation of September 9 looks like. In the first place is the “United Russia”, for which 29.4% of all respondents are ready to vote, or 35.3% of those who declare that they will definitely vote. Furthermore, the Communist Party – similarly 16.5% and 20.5%, LDPR – 10% and 8.5%, SZZP – 5.5% and 6.9%, New People – 5.2% and 4.5%, Party of pensioners – 3.1% and 2.8%, and Yabloko – 2.1% and 2%. For all together, small parties this year expressed a willingness to vote for 19% of voters. And here is the VTsIOM forecast (average value between the corridor boundaries): “ER” 42%, KPRF – 19%, LDPR – 11%, “SRZP” – 8%, “New people” – 5%, “Pensioners' party” -4 %, “Yabloko” – 3%. Also REP “Green” can get 3%.

According to the FOM, introduced by its leading analyst Grigory Kertman, the situation is basically the same, but the results are slightly higher for United Russia, slightly lower for the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and significantly less for the Liberal Democratic Party. The Social Marketing Institute (Insomar) also presented its evaluation. Its director for political analysis, Viktor Poturemsky, also cited data that are not fundamentally different from VTsIOM, although INSOMAR had slightly lower figures for the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and the “Pensioners' Party” and “higher” for the SRZP. Insomarov's prediction also turned out to be almost identical to the VTsIOM's prediction, except for the result of “United Russia” – it is higher than that of colleagues.

If the VTsIOM, FOM and INSOMAR assessments and forecasts covered only half of the Duma's mandates (ie the results for the federal district), the Center for Current Policy (CPC) has already presented a fully-fledged forecast for all State Duma posts, including those received by party representatives in single-member constituencies …. The head of the CTC Scientific Council Alexei Chesnakov, in anticipation of forecast data, mentioned circumstances that significantly complicate forecasts this year simply due to the fact that they were not previously associated with the Duma campaign. This, in addition to all the fluctuations in public opinion associated with coronavirus, also the new technical conditions for voting – “three days” and remote electronic voting.

The forecast from the CPC is as follows: “United Russia” can win from 292 to 306 seats, the Communist Party – from 67 to 70, LDRP – from 39 to 42, SRZP – from 25 to 28. Candidates who were nominated themselves, they can get 3-5 seats, Yabloko, possibly 2.

The prognosis for “participation” (now it can be “remote”), suggested by experts, was somewhat different. For example, for FOM it is from 43% and more (it can exceed 50%), for INSOMAR it is with certainty 50-52%.

Gleb Kuznetsov noted in his detailed review of the results and campaigns of rating leaders that the United Russia, unlike its competitors, was not only able to cope with the challenges of negative perceptions of pension reform or coronavirus decisions, but also convincingly updated active groups. At the same time, the same KPRF, which could play exactly what could harm United Russia, did not realize these opportunities, failed to convincingly offer something new, and, moreover, began to embarrassingly resist innovation in the electoral system. designed to ensure the safety of citizens. The Liberal Democratic Party of Russia is unlikely to grow compared to the previous results as a result of the implementation of the leader's agenda, which according to the expert is quite special. The “SRZP” will also not justify hopes for a clear take-off, judging by the campaign. A pleasant surprise, according to Gleb Kuznetsov, was the “New People” campaign, which is relatively literally technologically literate, and their candidates, interesting to the regions. The Yabloko campaign was described as unsuccessful because it represented nothing conspicuous, while the story of a departure from Grigory Yavlinsky's image did not lead to any comprehensible result.

The Foreign Ministry threatened Russia with sanctions for blocking gas transit through Ukraine


Russia will face sanctions if it blocks the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine, said the chief adviser on energy security of the Foreign Ministry Amos Hochstein. He stressed that such a condition is contained in the agreements between the USA and Germany. The German side also undertook to use every opportunity to extend the transit agreement through Ukraine for 10 years.

Hochstein noted that no one should be surprised if the US announces new sanctions. “In other words, we will do everything in our power to make the Germans ready for the moment and for Russia to know that it will have to pay for it,” the politician stressed.

The ruler of the dwarven principality of Monaco Albert II. He insists that his wife, Princess Charlene, “did not go to anger” in South Africa, and admits that he had to remove the rumors of a break-up as soon as possible, but focused on “childcare.”

According to the daily The Daily Mail told People's 63-year-old monarch that speculation about the state of his relationship with the former Olympic swimmer had both “hit” them, but soon did not respond because “he focused on childcare.”

According to the Daily Mail, Charlene, who married the Prince of Monaco in 2011 and gave birth to two children, six-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriel, is now in her native South Africa for several months after contracting an infection in May. p>

According to People magazine, the princess will not return to the principality of her husband until October, after experiencing complications related to the lifting of cavities and bone transplantation, which she underwent due to dental implants.


Since then, Charlene has apparently undergone several remedial procedures, including one at the end of June, which resulted in a missed 10th wedding anniversary on July 1, and a four-hour operation on August 13.

How Charlene was allegedly admitted to a local hospital on September 1 after a sudden fainting. She was later released, but doctors “are still finding out exactly what happened,” said Chantell Wittstock, director of the Princess Charlene Foundation in Monaco.

In an interview with the People, Prince Albert said: “She did not leave Monaco in a rage! She didn't leave because she was mad at me or someone else … She didn't emigrate. It was a purely medical problem that needed to be treated. “

He added that his wife was planning a trip to South Africa to evaluate the work of her foundation and spend time with her brother and friends.

But the “10-day maximum stay” was extended to several months due to the infection, which, according to the prince, led to “all these health complications.”

However, Charlene was last seen in Monaco in January, and a long time spent outside her husband and two children caused rumors of a difficult state of affairs in the princely family.

Prince Albert admitted that he “probably should have dispelled” the rumors earlier, but “focused on childcare” and believed that the gossip would simply “disappear”.

“Of course it affects her, of course it affects me too. , “said the prince of the magazine.” Misinterpretation of events is always detrimental … We are an easy target, easy to hit because we are often in sight. “

Last Friday, Charlene was in stable condition after admission to the hospital. the port city of Durban in the southeast of the province of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) after a sudden “fainting”.

“Her calm Highness Princess Charlene was taken to the hospital by an ambulance late Wednesday night after fainting due to complications caused by a severe infection of her ear, nose and throat, which she received in May,” the foundation said in a statement.

In a statement from Prince Albert's office, the princess was “very closely monitored by the medical team, who confirmed that her condition was encouraging.”

The Princess of Monaco, born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), underwent surgery in August, but little details have been released about the procedure. According to the princess, her last concern for her health was “part of her recovery.” South Africa, but photographs of a couple embracing have been described as “embarrassing” by a body language expert.

In recent weeks, secular publications across Europe have feverishly speculated that a princely couple from Monaco could divorce. French magazine Madame Figaro said the photos of the couple “did not convince the Monaco” amid reports that Charlene was looking for a home in Johannesburg, South Africa.

According to The Telegraph, the magazine asked, “How long can he stay away from his children, from his responsibilities? How long will the fight against rhino poaching remain a top priority for the Princess of Monaco? How long will Albert II last in Monaco. This insult that becomes ridiculous? “

Historian Philippe Delorme says that” many thought it was an arranged marriage “between Charlene and Albert, adding:” Albert chose a wife who looked like his mother, and Charlene took on the role Grace Kelly was obviously very uncomfortable. was forced. “

More and more rumors of a rift in the prince's marriage emerged after Charlene shared professional photographs of her meeting with Prince Albert online and claimed she was “excited” to return the family.

She published on the Internet a series of photos of her hugging her children in South Africa, with the caption: “I'm so glad my family is back with me (Gabriella decided to have her hair cut !!!) I'm sorry se, beautiful, I'm trying to fix it. “

However, the body language expert told FEMAIL that Charlene did not show any “emotional attachment” to her husband, Prince Albert, in the photos.

Judy James said that instead of the moving photo of a reunion one would expect from a famous couple, the poses of the princely family indicated “no sign of a connection between the embarrassing-looking Albert and Charlene.”

in South Africa at least since March and the media reports that they are looking for a home there.

The prince, who had already met two illegitimate children, was also reportedly in a relationship with a Brazilian woman, which resulted in the birth of a daughter in 2005. A statement rejected by his lawyers as a “hoax” is particularly painful because he was dating Charlene at the time. (The couple met in 2000).

However, Charlene publicly supported her husband, and the palace confirmed that she was in South Africa just because she could not fly. On August 13, the Monaco Palace issued a statement that Charlene was to undergo surgery. It said: “Princess Charlene will undergo a four-hour operation under general anesthesia today, Friday, August 13.” The princess will return to Monaco at least until the end of October, notes the Daily Mail.>

Princess Charlene , who was good enough to conduct talks in South Africa and appear everywhere, used this time to promote her anti-poaching initiative, Chasing Zero.

Charlene's last official appearance took place on January 27, when she appeared with Prince Albert at a ceremony in Monte Carlo. She has not been seen in the principality since.

Instead, she makes herself known to the world through social media posts and media interviews, in which she talked openly about the missing children and called her husband “her rock.”

In an interview with South African Radio 702 presenter Mandy Viner, “The Princess of Monaco said,” I can't wait to get back to them, I can't wait to see my children. “

Charlene said: “This is the longest period since I was actually outside of Europe, not to mention my children, but I most often communicate with them on FaceTim and they have been here and will come again to see me again after my operation. It's a great opportunity [to be here], but I'm very sorry I couldn't be with my kids in Europe this summer. “

She added that originally Africa was supposed to be in her native south only ten to twelve days on a trip dedicated to the protection of nature and the activities of her princess Charlene from Monaco.

Growing up in South Africa and representing South Africa at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Charlene traveled to KwaZulu-Natal in January to learn more about how the Princess Charlene Foundation of Monaco in South Africa is helping save rhinos from poachers.> The princess was involved in conservation operations, including rhino monitoring and surveillance, deployment with an anti-poaching unit, wildlife photography training sessions, etc.

However, the prince had a problem with “ear alignment” and the doctor told her that he suffers from a serious sinus infection.

“It took a while to solve my problem,” Charlene explained. “I can't go into details, but I can't force myself to recover, so I'll stay in South Africa until the end of October.” The reason is that I can't fly over 3000 meters, otherwise I will have problems with my ear. I feel good, I feel good, this is of course a game for me, but I had a great opportunity to learn more about South Africa, the environment, needs and it was great to return to South Africa and I think today is very important for people to learn about certain things through my foundation. “

However, princely sources indicated that the princess “has no plans” to return in the foreseeable future. A source from the palace in Monaco told Paris Match: “The princess will not really return yet.”

The marriage of Charlene and Prince Albert has been rumored from the very beginning. The couple met at the Mare Nostrum swimming competition in Monte Carlo in 2000, but the engagement was not announced until 2010.

Former Olympic swimmer Charlene reportedly tried to flee Monaco to her native South Africa three times before the wedding after finding out that Albert allegedly fathered another illegitimate child while they were together.

Monaco officials allegedly persuaded her to return by negotiating an agreement between the prince and his fiancée, saying that she could leave as soon as she provided him with a legal heir.

One source said at the time: “Charlene will provide an heir. and then, if something goes wrong, he gets a generous divorce settlement as soon as he has a decent time. “

The Daily Mail recalls that Charlene cried on her wedding day in 2011. And just a year after the wedding, it became clear that Charlene had been “crushed” by the fact that she had not provided her husband with a legal heir. Her pregnancy was announced in May 2014 and in December of that year she gave birth to twins, Princess Gabriel and the heir to the throne, Prince Jacques.

For the past 10 years, Charlene has rarely spoken publicly about her life.

In 2017, the princess returned emotionally to Africa, where she talked about how much the continent means to her. “I am African and this is my heritage.” It will be like this forever. It's in my heart and in my veins, “an eyewitness told the magazine.

Last year, she admitted that her life was “very painful” and said, “I have the honor of having such a life, but I miss my family and friends in South Africa and I am often sad because I can't always be with them. . . “

Stormy times have fallen on the princely family after reports of Prince Albert facing paternity lawsuit over an illegitimate child born in the early years of his relationship with Charlene: claims the 34-year-old prosecutor, whose name cannot be legally named for having a passionate relationship with Albert , which led to the birth of their daughter, whose name is also mentioned on 4 July 2005.

Albert received a handwritten letter from a girl who is now 15 last September, stating: “I don't understand why I grew up without a father, and now that I've found you, you don't want to see me. ”

children born in the 1990s and early 1920s.

In January, for the first time, Charlene made the following allegations in public, stating Point de Vue: “When my husband enters, there will be problems, he will tell me about it. I often say to him, “No matter what I do, I'm with you a thousand percent. I will be by your side, no matter what you do, in good times and bad. “

A mother of two said she also often told her husband” to protect him “and” always be there for him. ”
