ATP hired Election old ladies-lender

January 19 2007

Election headquarters of the Union of Right Forces, tasked with leading notorious State Duma deputy from Ekaterinburg Anton tanks, whose cynical, but not very effective spin-doctoring shocked even seasoned veteran of Russian politics. We were asked to share their views on this figure and his methods countrymen Bacova - State Duma Deputy Yevgeny Royzman and well-known political scientist Fyodor Krasheninnikov Yekaterinburg.

Yevgeny Roizman, MP for the constituency № 165 of the Sverdlovsk region:

Tanks were everywhere after the ATP had left the faction "United Russia", then he was kicked out, then again came to the ATP. They worked on the election Perm region. After a left scorched earth. Apparently, he divides the electoral budget in half. Half of the picks, and a half working. I do not know what he has done good things for people and talk about it I do not like. I have many say that tanks - the shame of the Urals. Yes, in the Sverdlovsk region to him is an attitude. But what can I comment on the actions of the tanks? I agree with him never intersect.

Fyodor Krasheninnikov, a political scientist:

In the Urals Bacova too well known and no longer taken seriously. Tanks generally a political consultant, not a politician. He has just such a business - to organize any PR-campaign to order. He's deputy in the Duma, that is, anything you can say and do, the inviolability of all the fog! With that, he is taken not only for political but for obvious commercial "black PR".

In Yekaterinburg, he fought it with the pharmacists, then the builders, and the whole town knew, for whose benefit all this is arranged.

He is one method for all situations - very simple and effective. And it is very clumsy. In the Sverdlovsk region it has a local contingent, consisting mainly of grandmothers, whom he pays a little for many years and draws all its activities. These grandmothers chain led him to other agitators. They are simply avoiding the apartment, and it creates interest.

We know that if you let people from house to house, it can be on level ground some results obtained. If each agitator to persuade a few people, and if the agitators are many, the extent of the area can get somewhere in 10%. That is passing the result. Again, this method of investor campaign is extremely difficult to understand how much all this really worth it.

Tanks very cleverly wins back any situation in its favor: it has its own media, which constantly spreading on the Internet about his seeming triumph, and in every way glorify him as a great engineer, magician and sorcerer PR. In reality, we are dealing with a primitive network technology, just a spectacular package.

I personally do not think that the March election he will be able to establish in several regions of Russia, which displays lists of ATP, a workable grid agitators: he did not have so many people able to travel to the regions and they work independently. Nevertheless, in the Moscow region is a broad recruitment of people in Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk region. That is, he is simply trying to bring in the Moscow Region Sverdlovsk its grid, as it was a Permian election.

It's hard to say what the outcome for the ATP friendship with this man. Hardly something good. But that "right" party does not bet on ideology, and networking technologies and provincial adventurers with questionable political backgrounds, spoke of her deepest ideological and staffing crisis. Obviously, they have nothing to say to people, so they rely on imaginary bakovskie "the super". Most likely, Tanks leverages all the resources that will be in his hands, in their view.
