Last week, United Russia unveiled its election program, which it called "pre-election address." It only included the theses by the president and the prime minister which they had voiced at the recent congress of the Party. Experts said the format of the program is suitable for a "small Opposition party," not for the ruling one.

The "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" notes that a decision was made at the Party's 12th Congress back on September 24 that the election program of the ruling party would consist of the speeches by President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. This is exactly what happened. Both leaders spoke about practically the same things, one of them spoke more voluminously, and the Party's editors faced a difficult task as a result. The document was compiled in such as manner as to approximately match the amounts of the texts spoken by Putin and Medvedev.

Indeed the text is a compilation of the speeches; with occasional quotes. The authors of the finalized text added almost nothing, despite the provision that a people's program was used," the "Vedomosti" notes. As a result, the program begins with Medvedev's theses but dos not elaborate, and continues with Putin's promises and a statement of achievements.
