Ksenia Sobchak caught four other presidential candidates in the work of Vladimir Putin. It became obvious to her after Grigory Yavlinsky, Boris Titov, Maxim suraykin and Sergey Baburin has not acceded to its demands on the transition debate in the format of “one on one”. Especially for it went live on March 6, Grigory Yavlinsky. Their opponents Sobchak called “spoilers” and charged that they oppose the idea of the debate and “showed itself in all its glory” during the CEC meeting the day before, agreeing with the existing format of electoral debates.

“Among the candidates there are special adjustable people, which, of course, opposed the idea. I want you to remember these names: Titov, suraykin, Yavlinsky, Baburin. You can say anything a great speech… about the fact that they are against Putin and against the system, but… today because of the four candidates, four spoilers we are unable to hold the decision to debate was alone among the candidates,” — said Sobchak.
Political analyst Alexei Makarkin believes that the requirement of Ksenia Sobchak about the transition to the format of “one on one” would make sense, start preparing for the presidential debate much earlier. But not today, a week and a half before election day. “About the true meaning of the requirements Sobchak need to ask her, but I want to say that the current campaign already marked by a great number of scandals. New scandals and accusations, does not add pluses or to the person who accuses, nor those against whom the charges are brought”, – said the Deputy Director of the Center for political technologies.
