Absence of updates at the official website of the “A Just Russia” party with the latest posts made on the following day after the elections – on September 19, proves the statement.
On that day three posts under the following statements emerged in the Internet resource: “Lyudmila Kolomytseva expresses her gratitude to fellow citizens for their participation in elections”, “'A Just Russia' becomes a parliamentary party for third time”, and “'A Just Russia' starts working under new political conditions”. How “A Just Russia” work is going now, the supporters of the party in the Penza region may only guess.
In the “Photo/Video” section information is also outdated. The latest update here was made on June 3, 2016.
In the “Newspaper” section only 6 issues of the “Front ZhKH” are available for users: the February, March, April, May, June and July issues of the current year.
In addition, unlike the times of the election campaign when residents found the newspaper with the photo of the party member Lyudmila Kolomytseva on the cover in their letterboxes, now such information is not received from Penza residents.
The fact that the “A Just Russia” party members do not take part in public events of the Penza region also proves the lack of public activity.
Thus, if in 2015 on the National Unity Day representatives of “A Just Russia” joined the city meeting on Lenina square and were recognized by their yellow flags, this year – even if they were present – remained unnoticed.
Besides, party representatives drastically decreased the level of their activity in the Penza region media.
Lyudmila Kolomytseva, who lost the elections, is not seen on TV screens anymore like it was during the agitation period when she appeared as an active right protector.
Leonid Levin, who used to appear almost every day on local television before September 18, and who together with officials of Penza and the region, took part as a distinguished guest in different events from Knowledge Day to the journalist festival, reoriented himself to the federal media after he had been elected a State Duma deputy.
The only event of the regional scale that he lately took part in is the govervor’s Ivan Belozertsev meeting with the members of the Russian parliament on October 29, where apart from him only members of the “Union Russia” were present – the member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation Alexei Dmitrienko and also State Duma deputies Sergei Esyakov and Ivan Firyulin.
