According to the oppositionist, he had “no power to look at elections, where candidates work the crowd.” “I want that 2018 was a clash of programmes and ideas, the choice is not only man, but also the development of the country. I have a program which is better than that offered by Putin and the Kremlin. I’m not afraid to call a spade a spade, to expose not only “the system”, but specific people”, — the politician noted.
