Spravedlivaya Rossiya is the third-largest political party in Russia after United Russia and the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

Mironov acknowledged that there was a possibility that the elections might be postponed due to “combat activities.”

However, if they do happen, then the president needs “nationwide support,” he added.

Putin won a second consecutive term as president in March 2018. In 2020, the Russian parliament passed constitutional amendments that allowed Putin to take part in the 2024 polls.​​​​​​​
