It’s just under a week until the Presidential election in Russia. And RT is starting its special coverage. We spoke exclusively to one of the hopefuls – Pavel Grudinin, the candidate for the Communist Party.
He’s a 57-year-old director of a farm – and his left-wing platform proposes nationalizing big industries and banks. Critics, though, accuse him of keeping his own earnings in foreign banks – something he denies.
RT asked him about some of the pressing issues facing Russia and its society.
