A site dedicated to all things Russian Navy called Flot.com has an interesting Internet poll.
The site asks visitors to vote for the party they feel will provide the greatest assistance in developing the Russian Navy. Click the image below to see the results as of today.
Looking for the Pro-Navy Party
Pardon one for concluding this is pretty compelling.
Sixty percent of those responding say the KPRF will be most supportive of the Navy’s development.
Bucking Russia’s electoral law, Flot.com still permits an “against all” option. So 18 percent say no party will provide the greatest assistance in the development of the VMF.
United Russia comes in third at about 10 percent.
And to think the “party of power” organized a GPV in which the largest portion will go to the Navy.
A pretty damning indictment.
Yes, it’s an Internet poll, and it’s influenced by its clientele.
No offense to a good site is intended, but Flot.com’s visitors could be older, and still more Soviet than Russian. Who knows? But they’re also knowledgable and interested in their subject. Hence, they represent an elite, tough, and skeptical audience.
The GPV notwithstanding, the yedinorossy have failed to convince them they’ll fix the Navy’s problems.
