The candidate for the Presidency of Russia Vladimir Putin has stated that he is not going to open official or personal accounts on social media. The only internet presence is those of his campaign headquarters, said the press-secretary of the headquarters, Andrei Kondrashov.
Any work on social media will be done by volunteers and supporters of Putin.
Earlier, it was noted that Vladimir Putin was not going to participate in the pre-election debates as other candidates are. Putin noted a lack of time as a reason – and with the many forums of discussion he holds through out the year, who could blame him?
The presidential elections in Russia are scheduled for March 18 this year. Putin will stand as a self-promoted.
