Alexei Navalny will participate in the presidential elections of 2018. It was announced in the letter which was received by its supporters. A copy of the appeal is available .
“I am aware how difficult it will be to resist the current government, with its falsifications and propaganda machine. I understand very well that even to become a candidate it will be difficult,” — said Navalny.
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.
