This means that comrades are launching a mechanism to print the signature sheets and begin collecting signatures in support of Lisitsyna’s nomination. It is necessary to collect more than 100,000 signatures by the end of January — a very short time.

The United Communist Party and ROT Front appeal to everyone who is willing to help — with their signature, or to gather signatures of family and friends — with a request to contact:

Collect signatures for workers’ candidate

Dear comrades!

As you know, the ROT Front party nominated for the presidential election in 2018 a workers’ candidate — Natalia Lisitsyna, crane operator from the Kirov plant (Leningrad). This is not done to try to win a farce called the “presidential elections.” Our working-class candidate is a challenge to the entire political system, including the struggle against the institution of the presidency.

Officials of all stripes already took up arms against an ordinary woman who dared to launch an election campaign. They put spokes in the wheels and are trying to hamper the start of our election campaign as much as possible.

Despite everything, the work has begun. By the end of January, we need to collect 100,000 signatures. You can give all possible support to the workers’ candidate by signing. To do this, you need to contact the collection point for signatures in your area.

It is also possible to financially help the agitational campaign which we are starting. To do this, you can transfer funds to a special election account for NS Lisitsyna — 40810810338009416382 in PJSC Sberbank.

Watch for election news!
