The founder of the group “Rolf” has refused to run for the state Duma from the socialist-revolutionaries


The founder of the group “Rolf” Sergei Petrov will not run for the Duma of the seventh convocation. This was reported by two sources in the leadership of “Fair Russia”, from where he now works as a Deputy. “He’s got his reasons,” says the source .

Peter himself through the representative confirmed that he would not run from the “Fair Russia” and long ago made this decision. He did not specify whether he plans to move forward from other parties.

A friend of Petrov, said that to refuse to cooperate with the Deputy of the party leader Sergei Mironov asked the authorities because of his votes in the Duma.
