Former member of the Tatu group Yulia Volkova will take part in the primaries of United Russia. The party commented on this decision of the controversial candidate.
In “United Russia” they justified themselves for participation in the primaries of the party of the former member of the group “Tatu” Yulia Volkova, who has, to put it mildly, an ambiguous image. Deputy Secretary of the General Council of United Russia Sergei Perminov said that the party is open to everyone.
The Tatu group appeared in Russia in 1999 and received scandalous fame due to the fact that two soloists portrayed same-sex relationships on stage. The duo also focused on different forms of same-sex relationships. The target audience of the group was teenagers and schoolchildren.
According to Sergei Perminov, a former member of the Tatu group has appeared to participate in the selection procedure for United Russia. He noted that the party is looking for candidates with a capital letter – interesting, bright, honest, professional.
People will decide who is worthy to represent them in the State Duma. Our task is an open, objective and modern procedure,
– quoted by “RIA Novosti” deputy secretary of the General Council of “United Russia”.
Recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the country’s orientation towards traditional family values. This is expressed in the Constitution, where marriage is defined as the union of a man and a woman. This is reflected in legislation that prohibits the promotion of same-sex relationships among minors. And also this is expressed in the support of families by the state.
