MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Leader of the Communist Party /KPRF/ Gennady Zyuganov suggested to the faction leaders at the State Duma lower house of Russia's parliament that they request a meeting with President Vladimir Putin to consider problems of election campaigns.
"The breakup of the political system which is happening in our country, the emergency of hundreds of parties and the organization of elections according to the plan where political parties disappear and there's only rivalry between moneybags, all kinds of scum, will result in a worse situation than what is unfolding in Kiev," Zyuganov warned. "There is still time to take necessary decisions."
Zyuganov suggested a meeting with Putin during the discussion of the house's draft resolution on the situation in Ukraine on Wednesday.
"As for our country, we should remember that if we continue the same course and weak-willed policy in developing our economy, we'll face approximately the same situation," the KPRF leader said.
"I wish to ask my colleagues: Vasilyev, Zhirnovsky and Mironov. We should request a meeting with the president together, in order to mull election campaign problems," he said.
