Parliamentary elections for Russia are coming up in December. Here are some ad posters put out by "United (or Unified) Russia," the party affiliated with President Putin.

Above: "In Putin's plan is the strength of Petersburg." Or "Petersburg's strength is in Putin's plan."

This one offers to help citizens help orphanages by collecting used items for children.

"Russia. Something to be proud of."

Some of the other ads I've seen are along the lines of: "We love our senior citizens," (with photos of smiling glamourous seniors) "Teaching is more than a profession," and messages about getting an education and protecting green areas of St.Petersburg. Public service announcements.
