VLADIVOSTOK, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The press secretary to the Russian prime minister, Dmitry Peskov, on Thursday said the recently created National Popular Front (ONF) was no rival to the ruling United Russia party.
It is “pointless and senseless,” he said, to debate which one of them is better. “We are continuing active efforts in what is related to the Popular Front, and this work in some aspects coincides with the party activities, its election campaign; it is part and parcel of a common process and there is no point in discriminating one from the other,” Peskov noted.
He expressed confidence that after the “election cycle is over the Popular Front will be needed still more in terms of the consolidation of society.”
“The mere discussion and any speculation about the ‘end of the Popular Front’ are, to put it mildly, an overstatement,” Putin’s press secretary stressed and said media allegation about the rivalry between United Russia’s headquarters and the Popular Front were absolutely groundless.
