Putin is facing a test of voters through poisonous criticism at the hospital


Nearly one-third of voters are eligible to vote in the ballot, which begins on Friday, in which representatives at various levels of government can be elected’ in 83 constituencies, including 18 governors.

The clash comes amid unprecedented anti-government protests and daily protests in neighboring Belarus since July in Russia's Far East Khabarovsk region over the arrest of a popular governor from outside the ruling party. Analysts say authorities are doing everything possible to limit the opposition's gains.

"There is a real threat to the Kremlin," said Vladimir Gilman, a professor of political science at the European University in St. Petersburg.

Putin, 67, has pushed for constitutional changes that could extend his two-decade rule by 2036. Nevertheless, its popularity plummeted earlier this year after falling oil prices and the spread of the Cove-19 epidemic, a recession that could shrink the economy by about 4% in 2020.

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny was working to support opposition candidates for the ruling United Russia party when he was hunted down’ in Siberia last month after German doctors identified him as being poisoned by a military neurotransmitter, Novichok. He was born in a coma in a Berlin hospital on Monday, where he was sent’ for treatment.

Navalny has been followed by millions of people in Russia through online videos exposing high-level corruption. Despite pressure from European leaders, Russia has so far failed to investigate the matter, and has no evidence that the 44-year-old campaigner was poisoned.

In a video released during a trip to Siberia and released after being hospitalized’ Navalny appealed to viewers to support politicians in every field with the best chance of defeating the Russian candidate. Take your "smart voting" step. The party lost one-third of its seats in last year's Moscow City Council elections due to the promotion of the tactic.

This time around, his campaign is urging about 1,150 candidates to vote in municipal contests as a rehearsal for the 2021 autumn elections in the lower house of parliament. It has fielded candidates in several areas, including Novosibirsk and Tomsk.

"Poisoning could lead to a major backlash to seriously accelerate the erosion of government support," said Ivan Zhdanov, head of Navalny's anti-corruption fund in Moscow's office.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin had no fears that Neville's illness could affect the vote. "There are no such concerns," he told reporters in a conference call on Friday.

Putin is far more popular than United Russia. According to independent Moscow-based pollster Levada, his ranking rose by 6 percentage points to 66% in August, as economic activity resumed with a slowdown in lockdown measures against the corona virus. According to the state-run Russian Public Opinion Research Center, or VTSIOM, United Russia has more than 31 percent support.

Although authorities have made it difficult for opposition candidates to register, incumbent governors are still struggling in half a dozen constituencies. These include Arctic, where dissatisfaction with last year's catastrophic floods is high, and Arkansas, where demonstrations thwarted landfill site plans.

Election monitors are warning of the decision to hold a three-day referendum, including online voting. The election is taking place in "the worst legal framework in 25 years," watchdog Golos said.

Navalny crews have complained of attacks, including in Novosibirsk when several volunteers fell ill after the attackers threw a bottle of harmful substances on September 8.

A day later, police conducted more than 20 raids targeting campaigners, who support exiled tycoon Mikhail Khadorkovsky, who is backing 500 candidates in four constituencies.

Despite pressure, the opposition could demonstrate that it could be a "major obstacle to the Kremlin's control" of parliament, where United Russia has a two-thirds majority. Tank "In 2021, the situation will be much more critical for the authorities."
