State Duma deputies from United Russia received recommendations from the party on what to talk about with voters during the regional week, which will be held from July 3 to 9. As Kommersant writes , having read the document, the first in the list of topics is the rebellion of the PMC Wagner.
Deputies are encouraged to emphasize in conversations with the population that the conflict was resolved without bloodshed when society consolidated around Vladimir Putin. In the context of discussing the rebellion, citizens should be explained that people who put "momentary grievances, discontent and ambitions" above the interests of the state are not patriots, but criminals.
When discussing the topic of war in Ukraine, it is recommended to talk about Putin's unconditional leadership and popular support.
The rebellion, raised by the founder of PMC Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, on the evening of June 23, lasted a day. The column of mercenaries turned about 300 km before reaching Moscow. During this time, PMC fighters shot down six helicopters and one plane of the Russian Aerospace Forces, as a result, 13 pilots were killed.
