TV journalist Ksenia Sobchak announced plans to run for President of Russia in 2018.
This is stated in her letter that the presenter sent to the editor of “Vedomosti”.
“Realizing all the risks and the incredible complexity of this task, I decided that my participation in the presidential elections can indeed be a step towards much-needed country reforms,” – said Sobchak.
Sobchak added that he believes the right to boycott the election “in case of refusal in registration by candidates of prominent opposition figures and, of course, first and foremost, Alexey Navalny”. According to her, the refusal to participate in “controlled, flawed, even fraudulent elections” will not leave “no way out, except for a street confrontation.”
Previously Ksenia Sobchak appealed to the opposition leader Alexei Navalny with a proposal to work together before the presidential elections of 2018.
