A source in the leadership of “United Russia” confirms that, most likely, the new authorized will not be their candidate. The Ombudsman’s work does not imply loyalty to the government, this person should oppose the officials, says United Russia. Moskalkova he calls “a worthy man”, for which the party could vote.

“Moskalkova — an experienced lawyer, in most cases occupying the position of human rights, adequate people,” agrees Deputy Chairman of the faction “Fair Russia” Mikhail Emelyanov.
