SEVASTOPOL, May 22. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister and leader of the ruling United Russia party Dmitry Medvedev did not take part in today’s advance vote for party candidates as he is on a business trip in Crimea, a source in the party said on Sunday.
"Medvedev is working in Crimea and voting is organized at places of residence," the source told journalists.
On Sunday, Medvedev met with participants in the party’s primaries who are candidates for members of the Russian State Duma lower parliament house from Sevastopol and Crimea. On Tuesday, he will take part in a United Russia forum on national health, also in Crimea.
"Our goal is not merely to outperform our opponent and prove that our program is better, our goal is to improve living conditions, to solve the huge amount of problems our country is facing. The task is not political struggle as such, not in winning debates but in solving the most complicated problems in the development of our country," Medvedev underscored. "If we come out with an open position, we are confident the what we are doing is right and people feel it.".
