Ksenia Sobchak, candidate to the presidency of the Russian Federation, sent to the Embassy of Ukraine in Russia a request to allow a trip to the Crimea. She stated this during a live broadcast on radio station “Echo of Moscow”.
As stated by Sobchak, in the Crimea she will go only if I can get permission.
“If I go to the Crimea, then through Ukraine only. If I get permission for this entry, I’ll go there,” she explained.
So Sobchak responded to the question of whether she’s going to visit the Peninsula as part of its election campaign.
