The President of the Moscow international film festival said that will not throw the gauntlet to Putin in the race for the post of President of all Russia, which will end on March elections of 2018. On the question of whether he is ready to lead Russia, Nikita noticed that with much more pleasure he will meet with actors in the pavilion or Studio. The question is on the nomination Mikhalkov, the President of the country, clearly surprised master.

“My election? – stressed surprised Mikhalkov. – It was called “the Barber of Siberia” where I rode on horseback to the Kremlin.” Nikita played the movie of Emperor Alexander III. The Director asked the journalist, so she sent a link to his campaign film: I want to see what I shot, but about the rumors, said: “On the fence what is written? And there is firewood”.
Add to this that recently, the network really was a movie about that Russian liberal “party” purposefully attacking Mikhalkov, almost a conspiracy was formed against sincere defender of Russia.
– Mikhalkov became the target of attacks and provocations by Pro-Western community, he launched a systematic campaign in the Western media it is called “Kremlin besogon” – said “MK” political scientist, Director of the International Institute of the newest States Alexey MARTYNOV. – That is, he was asked about the campaign for the presidency, not because he is in demand as an alternative to Putin, and that, roughly speaking, to provide him with unnecessary background — jealousy from the other candidates. Why it happened — difficult to understand. It seems to be saying that it is connected with its position at the Yeltsin centre. But little did anyone not like a Museum, against them do not include large-scale campaigns…
– What if really someone wants to see the President?
– If Mikhalkov ran, I have no doubt that he would have serious electoral prospect, and confidently walked traditional candidates – the leaders of all opposition parties. Everyone, except Putin, he would have walked.
Anyway, all this doesn’t sound like the start of the campaign Mikhalkov, more like a political struggle, the attempts of the West to play with the Russian elites.
Note, however, that the final clarity of metr is still not made. On the one hand: he was genuinely surprised by the question about “campaign film”, even asked to send… And on the other – whether it was feigned surprise? After all, Nikita is still a great actor.
