Party fundraising, Russian style

If you think Labour have been pushing their luck here in Britain, you've seen nothing.

The illustration shows a letter sent by the United Russia Party in Kemerovo region to the director of a company there.

My Russian is limited to the words and phrases I gleaned from chess magazines, but I am assured that a rough translation is:

I consider your refusal of financial support for our regional party of United Russia for the election campaign for the State Duma of the Russian Federation to be a refusal of support for President Putin and his programme.

I will inform about this to the Presidential Administration and to the Governor of Kemerovo region.
