MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The leader of United Russia's members in the Duma, Vice-Speaker Andrei Vorobyov described rumours about splitting of the party as an attempt to concoct something.
Earlier, some media reported that the United Russia party late this week may announce it will form three separate blocs and in the future three various Duma factions. They will be formed, allegedly, by the already existing United Russia clubs. As a result, three political factions may be formed – liberal, conservative and patriotic.
“Periodically, various rumours – very good, good and bad – emerge about United Russia,” Vorobyov said.
"I would like to describe yesterday's report as a joke or an attempt to concoct what does not exist at all by its nature," he noted.
"I want to reiterate that when you are delegated to parliament, a regional or federal body of power, they hope you will be occupied here with serious matters," the party leader told reporters.
"Regarding disuniting, breakups or any splits, the party has neither, even in the least, wish, intention nor, all the more, actions," he stressed.
“We are one united team. We realize that we will have serious stages of transformations and changes, and we are able to ensure them. So, these are no more than rumours, suppositions and somebody's fantasies," the politician concluded.
