Musician and co-chairman of the "Party of Growth" Sergei Shnurov said that he does not plan to take part in the elections to the State Duma in 2021.
My dad was a party member, but was he a deputy from the Communist Party of the Soviet Union? Not! I'm just a party, - TASS quotes him.
In the summer, during a trip to Chelyabinsk, party leader Boris Titov announced that the musician was going to participate in the elections to the State Duma in 2021.
As chernayakobra.ru wrote earlier, Sergei Shnurov has no plans to put political activity first. In particular, he refused to run for the by-election to the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg, although he was offered. He also denied information that he offered the Kremlin to join United Russia. In his opinion, the EP would become a burden for him due to personal popularity and recognition.
