In addition, over the past five years, the activity of the Union in the regions has increased. It has been replenished with new republican regional offices and now they operate in 72 RF administrative units. At the same time, we have greatly increased the number of events that have a wide public response, with the Penza Oblast among the leaders in its activity.
