Intimidating PR Tactics Engaged in Election Campaign in Tuva

Leaflet cauterizing Life party members in Tuva. Photo by Vitali Shaifulin With a week left before the election date, October 8, black PR methods are more actively engaged to make people vote for the needed candidates. Life party candidates, main United Russia rivals, have been named 'Shoigu's traitors' in leaflets glued onto all the public places in Kyzyl.

Shoigu's name esteemed in every house in Kyzyl has been actively engaged in United Russia propaganda campaign but none has expected that it can boil to black PR as well. The leaflets are accompanied with poison-pen texts saying who is your enemy and who is your friend.

A leaflet, in which Life party leader Zoya Sat, Merited doctor of Russia, Kyzyl ex-mayor is cauterized as a traitor, reads: 'Dear grandmother Zoya. Everything has already been in your life. And it is time for you to go. You have crossed out everything good in your life by betraying our Shoigu. You are a traitor! Have a rest, grandmother.'

The Election Commission of Tuva is investigating these cases, the leaflets have been handed over to law-enforcement structures to find out where they were issued, and on whose order.
