Russia moves to silence Levada Centre after damning public opinion polls

The Russian Justice Ministry has added the Levada Centre to its list of ‘foreign agents’, placing the internationally respected public opinion pollster’s very existence in jeopardy. The move was, appropriately enough, initiated by the pro-Kremlin ‘Anti-Maidan’ organization, and comes just days after the Centre reported a major slump in support for the ruling United Russia Party.

The Levada Centre was created in 2003 by the late Yury Levada and colleagues who were fed up with the political pressure on the state-owned Russia Public Opinion Research Centre [VCIOM]. In late 2015 VCIOM obliged President Vladimir Putin by producing, within 24 hours, a ‘survey’ finding that the vast majority of Crimeans were willing to forego electricity rather than sign a contract in which Crimea was referred to as part of Ukraine.

The Levada Centre has, in contrast, earned a reputation as independent pollster, and it is no accident that this is the second attempt to effectively paralyze it through the ‘foreign agent’ legislation.

In March this year, for example, the Levada Centre reported a 10% drop in Putin’s popularity. In July this year, it investigated the public’s attitude to the Bolotnaya Square prosecutions after protests over Putin’s third term as president. The survey found that 54% of respondents viewed the case fabricated in order to deter people from protesting.

In 2013, the authorities backed down. Since then, however, the regime has become much more repressive and disgruntlement is noticeably on the increase. Levada Director Lev Gudkov has warned that if its appeal against the Justice Ministry’s decision is rejected, it will not be able to continue. As well as all kinds of controls and checks on NGOs added to the ‘foreign agent’ list, there is also the label itself which must be placed on all material, etc. Branded in this way, it’s simply impossible to carry out a public opinion survey, Gudkov told TV Dozhd.

‘Anti-Maidan’ wrote a denunciation to the Justice Ministry in July, claiming that the Levada Centre had, since 2012 received money from the US Defence Department, with the University of Wisconsin acting as an intermediary. Gudkov denies this, and says that the spot check in August had been carried out in sloppy and biased fashion, and was fulfilling a political order. He does not see the elections due in two weeks as the reason for this move, but does mention the fact that his centre had demonstrated the fall in support for the ruling party. While support for Putin remains high, those phoned by the Levada Centre have also not been frightened to demonstrate falling support for the prime minister Dmitry Medvedev...............

Expert analysis: Elections in Crimea to strip Russian Duma of legitimacy

In yet another attempt to convince the international community that occupied Crimea has permanently become part of the Russian Federation, the Kremlin is once again violating the laws of its own state.

In accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the Russian electoral system is regulated by the federal laws (articles 3; 10; 12; 32; 62; 81; 84; 94; 95; 96; 97 and many others.) There are also federal laws "On elections of deputies of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation", and "On the Basic Guarantees of Electoral Rights and the Right to Participate in a Referendum of the Citizens of the Russian Federation" (2002).

In 2014, in accordance with the current legislation, the Central Election Commission of the Russian Federation, announced that elections would be held on December 4, 2016. However, in the spring of 2015, the State Duma of the VI convocation began considering moving the elections from December 4, 2016 to an earlier date. The second and third Sunday of September, as well as various dates in October and November 2016 were named as the possible early election dates. In the end, in July, the amendments to the relevant federal law allowed the elections to be moved to the third Sunday in September having been adopted by the Duma and signed by the President. This decision applies not only to the election of 2016, but also, to all subsequent elections to the State Duma. Shortly before the final adoption of the amendments, the Russian Constitutional Court of Russia had examined their legality and ruled that a one-time slight deviation from the constitutional five-year cycle of the State Duma of the Russian Federation did not contradict the Supreme Law..................
