    And, we have Russia's Trump too

    We already have a Russian Obama for the 2018 Election: Russian Obama

    Now, a Trump also:


    (Reuters) - Russian property developer Sergei Polonsky, who has been convicted of defrauding investors, plans to run in next year's presidential election, his campaign manager said on Wednesday.

    Polonsky is one of Russia's most flamboyant tycoons, known for once eating his tie after losing a wager and for pouring scorn on anyone worth less than a billion dollars. He is a divisive figure, with many Russians viewing him as a symbol of capitalist excess.

    Yeah, they had to extradite the SOB from Cambodia, where he lived on his own private island for years lol


    He used to be among the top real estate and construction moguls in Moscow, was one of the people behind that Moska-City Business Centre, among other things

    And then he ripped off a bunch of investors in a skyscraper project, and ran off to Cambodia...

    Now, apparently, wants to run for Prez too... Hey, why not, if a porn star can, why not him?

    And, I agree, we should get all these into one thread. Maybe the mods can do something about that.

    A Russian real estate magnate and former fugitive announced plans to build a city of the “future” in Crimea on Monday during a press conference to kickoff his presidential campaign.

    Billionaire Sergei Polonsky was sentenced to five years in prison this summer for theft in excess of 2.5 billion rubles ($42 million), but was released because too much time had passed since his crime was committed, the presiding judge ruled.

    Polonsky on Tuesday fashioned himself as a Russian Donald Trump, proposing building the Crimean megapolis if elected president, the state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported.

    "We need to build a new city in Russia — a city based on future, on new technologies,” Polonsky said during the press conference. “Because we are in the third millennium, we believe the new city will not belong to Russia, but to all countries of the world.”

    "There will be no visas, there will be open access to all countries of the world where each country of the world will receive separate, free sites and will be able to realize their projects," he added.

    Polonsky is no stranger to spectacle and has the past declared hunger strikes, eaten part of his tie on live TV and — though he has disputed the quote — said that anyone who isn’t a billionaire could “f-ck off.”

    When reporters asked Polonsky about his plans after his release this summer, he responded: “To turn the world upside down.”

    Well, one thing for certain, if they let this one run, with his conviction, then they'll have to let Navalny in also...

    BTW, another guy also running is Andrei Bogdanov:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei...ovich_Bogdanov

    Yep, a Communist also of some kind, AND a fucking Mason too, as Wikipedia mentions, "Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Russia" (Jesus, these guys sure are full of themselves... lol)




    It's his second run, he also "opposed" Medvedev in 2008.

    This time, his main issue is smokers rights lmao

    Hey, he'd appeared plenty with a cigarette in his hand before, when he also had the long hair, before he became head Mason and had to clean up his image a bit haha


    Smoking is being banned in more and more places in Russia

    Bogdanov says tens of millions of Russian smokers no longer feel like equal citizens in their own country hehe And he will represent them all, of course

    Probably the funnies moment in the 2008 "Election", was when he was on some TV show with Zhirinovsky and the latter kicked him out of the studio, had his own bodyguard literally escort him outside, at the end, said "You can shoot this motherfucker out there, I don't care!"

    hahaha

    Britain has one too! Ours was even born in New York! Boris Johnson is currently our Foreign Secretary, He just talked Iran into doubling the sentence of a British/Iranian who was arrested on holiday there.





    The man who said "I avoid visiting New York. There's a grave danger of running into Donald Trump!"
