Russian political parties have so far spent a total of $40.2
Russian political parties have so far spent a total of $40.2 million on their political campaigns for parliamentary elections to the State Duma set for December 2.

A spokesman for the Central Election Commission said Wednesday the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), led by Vladimir Zhirinovsky, has paid out $11.2 million on its election campaign, which means it has spent the most of all the political parties.

In comparison the favorite in the race, the pro-Kremlin United Russia party, spent $7.6 million on its political campaign.

The populist A Just Russia party, headed by upper house speaker Sergei Mironov, and the Union of Right Forces (SPS), led by Nikita Belykh, have spent $5 million and $4.3 million, respectively.

But Alexei Podberyozkin's Social Justice Party has spent a modest $21,000 on its campaign, the least of all the Russian parties.

The official election campaign in Russia started on November 4, some 28 days before parliamentary elections and will continue until 24 hours before voting starts on December 2. Eleven parties will run for the lower house.
