Russian presidential hopeful Sobchak demands release of political prisoners

Russian presidential hopeful Sobchak demands release of political prisoners”

Russia's "It Girl" Ksenia Sobchak, who plans to run for the presidency, said yesterday that she wanted to unite unhappy voters but would not attack leader Vladimir Putin.

Sobchak is the daughter of Anatoly Sobchak, a reformist Petersburg mayor who hired Putin as an official in City Hall in the 1990s.

Sobchak joined anti-Kremlin protests in Moscow in the winter of 2011-2012, and has been often critical of the government, but she has avoided criticizing Putin.

Ms. Sobchak promised that she would halt her presidential bid in the event that Mr. Navalny was allowed to run, though analysts regard that as unlikely. "If he is registered I will withdraw my candidacy".

Political analysts have said Sobchak's bid was designed by Putin's team to rekindle public interest in a tiresome election expected to extend the president's term to 2024.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has mandated new regulations around cryptocurrencies, including registration requirements for miners and the application of securities laws to initial coin offerings (ICOs). But he could never shake perceptions that he was a Potemkin candidate and disappeared from the political scene shortly after Election Day. Crimea belongs to Ukraine from the point of view of worldwide law. She said she had recently met with Putin to interview him about a documentary about her late father and informed him about her intention to become a presidential candidate. "There are many Russians there, who supported what happened".

Ms Sobchak would not say how much she expects the campaign to cost, saying only that she planned to receive funding from anonymous businessmen.

Earlier this month, Putin said the use of cryptocurrencies poses serious risks that must be taken into account when regulating them.

Ksenia Sobchak announced her presidential bid last week, arguing that Russian Federation has grown exhausted of its political elite.

Sobchak's Internet campaign chief is Vitaly Shklyarov, a veteran of the 2016 United States presidential election where he was a political consultant for Senator Bernie Sanders.
