In the temporarily occupied Luhansk region, public sector workers are being forced to join Putin’s United Russia party.
The Russian Federation actually has a one-party structure, where there is a leader’s party and several of its branches that vote in unison with it. It is the EU party members who are responsible for the attempts to occupy the territories of Ukraine and build party networks of Gauleiters, under the supervision of the FSB.
Therefore, active “replenishment” of the ranks of the party by residents of the occupied territories continues. In case of not receiving a party card, the Russians threaten to fire and even mobilize employees of the budget sector. The occupiers have already announced similar processes in the Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia regions. In Crimea, forced entry into the party took place in 2015-2016.
The purpose of issuing party tickets is to create the illusion of support from the residents of the occupied territories for Putin, and therefore for the Russian Federation. But this propaganda farce does not work, because the majority of the locals either left the region or avoid cooperating with the occupiers. That is why the enemy is taking Russian utility workers, teachers and doctors to TOT.
