Russian TV personality Ksenia Sobchak announced her decision to run in the 2018 presidential elections in order to bring back the option to reject all candidates with the 'none of the above' box, in Moscow on Wednesday.
Sobchak noted that she had decided to use the right to run for the presidency because she is «against everyone who usually exercises this right,» adding that her bid is a... Еще «peaceful and legal way to say 'enough, guys, we are fed up with you.'»
She went on to say that «there used to be a 'none of the above' option» but «we were deprived of this option to make it easier to steal our votes» and «to stay in power as long as possible.»
«I want to bring this option back. I want to bring back the opportunity to vote against all candidates. Whatever they promise, whatever they stand for, we are against it — against them, against everyone. Ksenia Sobchak, candidate for 'none of the above,'» said the Russian journalist and socialite.
Sobchak also argued that boycotting the elections would not bring about change in the country, adding that then «we would be arrested for our beliefs, sprayed with 'zelyonka' [green antiseptic], our children would dream of leaving the country. Navalny and other independent politicians would sit behind bars, and nothing would change.»
The Russian presidential elections are set to take place on March 18, 2018.
