MOSCOW, January 17 (Itar-Tass) — Stanislav Govorukhin told The Izvestia that he would work with all the electors, including those who attended rallies in the Bolotny Square and the Sakharov Avenue.
The first open meeting of Vladimir Putin’s electoral team was held on January 16. It did not discuss the tactics of the electoral campaign. Instead members of the team shared impressions of Putin’s article entitled “Russia being concentrated. Challenges we have to face,” which was published by The Izvestia. Govorukhin told The Izvestia after the meeting about how he would campaign for his candidate. He is sure Putin will win in the first round. He is going to turn into Putin’s supporters even those who took part in the rally, held in the Bolotny Square.
This time Putin’s electoral team decided to stake on the electorate, which is not traditional for him. The current electoral campaign will be directed not only at workers of the budget-financed sectors, servicemen, pensioners and members of trade unions, but also at members of the middle class. Govorukhin assured The Izvestia that he was willing to work even with protesters, including those who insist on Putin’s resignation, specifically, participants in the rallies held in the Bolotny Square and the Sakharov Avenue. At the same time, Govorukhin distinguishes between ordinary participants in the rallies and those who organized them.
