“I probably would have ran from “Agro-industrial party”, it has recently been reconstructed on the basis of several other parties. At various times I have successfully collaborated with several leaders of these parties, I think there I will find what to do today,” – said the scientist. “In the independents did not dare to go – it needs huge preparatory work, now I alone will not pull” – he said.
He noted that while he has insufficient seniority of the official political activity, “but we’ll see”.
United agro-industrial party of Russia was created in April of 2015. It was headed by former Vice – President of the Russian Federation Alexander Rutskoi. The party is going to participate in the elections to the state Duma in the autumn of 2016.
