Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a greetings telegram to participants of the all-Russian meeting of deputies and heads of municipal formations-members of the "United Russia" party. The forum of representatives of this pro-governmental party started its work on Saturday in Moscow.
According to the President, the meeting provides "good opportunity not only to exchange opinions on urgent matters of party construction." Vladimir Putin emphasized responsibility of deputies to voters and appealed to meeting participants "to efficiently coordinate their activity aimed at further strengthening of the Russian state and raising standards of living of its citizens."
More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
Putin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on remarks in the US media about failures in launching nuclear-capable missiles in Russia
