According to journalists, the head of the executive committee of United Russia, Sidyakin, was in Thailand from February 8 to 19, and on March 6 he flew there again.
The head of the central executive committee of United Russia, Alexander Sidyakin, traveled to Thailand twice, despite the fact that his party limits the ability of officials to leave the Russian Federation. The Agency writes about this, citing a source in the party, as well as leaks from border crossing bases.
It is reported that Sidyakin was in Thailand from 8 to 19 February. And on March 6 he flew there again. In the interval between trips, the politician is supposed to have managed to attend the message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly. In addition, he visited the occupied territories of Ukraine, in particular, in the so-called “DPR” as responsible for the party’s primaries.
According to the source, Sidyakin’s trips are being discussed in United Russia, but the leadership has not yet reacted in any way. The journalists tried to contact the politician by phone, but this did not work out, since the man who answered the phone refused to admit that he was Sidyakin.
It should be noted that back in October 2022, Sidyakin publicly spoke out against any entertainment of Russian officials while the war with Ukraine was being waged. Also in March 2022, he announced that the United Russia faction in the State Duma had decided to prohibit its deputies from leaving the country without permission.
Note that, as reported March 15 UK intelligence, Russian civil servants and workers are subject to increasingly stringent restrictions on travel abroad. This is done in order to prevent the escape or desertion of officials, most of whom are dissatisfied with the current situation in the Russian Federation.
According to the British intelligence services, the tightening of the rules for the travel of civil servants to the Russian Federation began in 2014, when the Crimean peninsula was occupied and then annexed. Some officials even had to give their passports to the FSB.
Recall that, during a speech before the board of the Prosecutor General’s Office on March 15, Putin called the protection of rights and freedoms the “basic principle” of Russia’s development. He stressed that the Russian Federation is a state of law, therefore, experienced prosecutors should be selected and sent to the territories of Ukraine captured by the Russian Armed Forces.
The Kremlin also responded to reports of a second wave of mobilization in Russia. On March 15, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the issue was not being discussed in the Kremlin.
