Before the decision to transfer the mandate, the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov, criticized United Russia, accusing the ruling party of the fact that the Kyrgyz scenario could repeat itself in Russia. According to Zyuganov, United Russia can get mandates in the elections to the State Duma only through fraud. In his own words, the head of the Communist Party made it clear that he would never stoop to this.
What is really going on? There were two candidates for the mandate of Vakha Agayev - ex-presidential candidate Pavel Grudinin and ex-governor of the Irkutsk region Sergey Levchenko. The first, it seems, was not asked, and the second, head of the Irkutsk regional committee of the Communist Party, allegedly decided to focus on work in the region.
As a result, the mandate will go to Vadim Kumin, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of Solidarity Bank. The curiosity of the situation is that one of the founders of the bank is the Moscow Property Department, which owns 49.72% of the shares.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin is United Russia member to the core, has been a member of the Party's Supreme Council since 2001. So what kind of scam are we talking about? It seems that Gennady Zyuganov’s words and deeds differ.
Vadim Kumin was already a deputy of the State Duma of the VI convocation and the Moscow City Duma of the V convocation. In 2018, he ran for mayor of Moscow, won 11.38% of the vote. The banker can be the link between Gennady Zyuganov and Sergei Sobyanin?
On September 3, Sergey Arakelov, who was previously Mikhail Mishustin's deputy at the Federal Tax Service, became the chairman of the bank's board of directors. Bank Solidarity is definitely not a stronghold of communism. And how does this all get along with Gennady Zyuganov's irreconcilable attitude towards United Russia?
The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation has long been playing a strange "game" with Sergei Sobyanin and through the governor of the Oryol region, the communist Andrei Klychkov. The grandson of the head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Leonid Zyuganov previously worked as an assistant.
Zyuganov Jr. refused to claim the place of his grandfather, realizing that his associates would "eat up" and not lick their lips. Can mark senators from Moscow or the Oryol region. Earlier there was talk that Moscow rubbish could go into it in exchange for investments. However, after an unsuccessful attempt with Shies, the emerging information about garbage agreements is immediately refuted. But it is not a fact that this issue has been completely removed from the agenda.
There are three groups in the KPRF now. The first includes Leonid Zyuganov and Vadim Kumin, who is considered Gennady Zyuganov's "wallet". Kumin's receipt of the mandate of a State Duma deputy will undoubtedly strengthen this group, and hence the position of Gennady Zyuganov. The main thing is for the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation to reassure his party conscience that he has given the mandate to the "bourgeois".
The second group includes regional leaders, the mayor of Novosibirsk Anatoly Lokot and Sergey Levchenko. They are the ones who give votes in elections. And they understand perfectly well when agreements are between the Communist Party and United Russia.
The third group is Valery Rashkin and his associates. He often becomes a participant in scandals, attacking representatives of United Russia. And thereby destroys the balance reached with the Presidential Administration (AP).
All groups are "fighting" among themselves and so far Gennady Zyuganov is the only one who not only keeps the party from splitting, but also knows how to agree on joint actions with the Presidential Administration. But Zyuganov is pursuing not only party goals. Behind them may hide the mercantile interests of the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.
After the grandson's refusal to become in the leadership of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Zyuganov's task is to maintain his power. How? The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation can deliberately support differences within the party in order to act as an indispensable conciliator for the party.
At the end of September, the son of Sergey Levchenko, Andrey, was arrested. He was accused of overstating the cost of elevator equipment and stealing 185 million rubles from the Fund for Overhaul of Apartment Buildings in the Irkutsk Region.
The founder of the fund is the Ministry of Housing Policy, Energy and Transport. In 2019, the fund received a loss of RUB 322 million. The communist son actually stole money from his communist father. And not a single representative of United Russia was in this scheme. Gennady Zyuganov has no one to bring down his party anger
Some political analysts suggest that Gennady Zyuganov himself, who gave the go-ahead to the President, could be behind the arrest of Andrey Levchenko. Sergei Levchenko is going to the State Duma elections, but wants to do it without the help of Gennady Zyuganov. Then he can get new supporters in the party and fight for the post of head of the Communist Party. Such an alignment of Gennady Zyuganov is definitely not satisfied.
Father and son Levchenko are doing business together. The shares of Levchenko Sr. are in the trust of Levchenko Sr. His elimination knocked out the financial support under the electoral company of Sergei Levchenko. This could be the main purpose of the arrest. Now the business of the Levchenko family will be targeted by the security forces.
Sergei Sobyanin is playing his game ahead of the transfer in 2024. He needs the support of the Communist Party, so it is beneficial for the mayor of Moscow that Gennady Zyuganov retains his post. But the question of Leonid Zyuganov's senatorship is still being discussed.
Thus, the transfer of the mandate to Vadim Kumin is a kind of curtsey from Zyuganov towards Sergei Sobyanin. And - no scam.
