Journalist and TV host Ksenia Sobchak on Wednesday announced plans to run for Russian president next year, Sputnik reported.
Sobchak launched a presidential campaign website on Wednesday, calling herself a candidate “none of the above,” and urging people to cast their votes for her.
According to the website, Sobchak has already gathered almost 2,000 signatures from the necessary 100,000 in order to be eligible to run for the presidency.
Sobchak also urged voters to show up at polling stations in a letter she sent to the Vedomosti newspaper to announce her candidacy. She added that she was hoping to raise the money necessary for the campaign with the help of the Russian elite.
