This, according to her, was about her new “big and important” project, which is now under threat because of elevated hype around it. “Now there is a risk that it might not happen due to the fact that the situation around me very aggravated,” – said Sobchak.
One of the sources of The Bell said that in fact we are talking about the idea of doing a show about the elections, this project was discussed, in particular, and on the TV channel “Rain”, where Sobchak maintains its own program.
For the first time about the possible nomination of Xenia Sobchak presidential candidates September 1, wrote the newspaper “Vedomosti”, which, citing sources in the Kremlin, said that the elections in 2018, Putin is looking for “sparring partner – woman”, and Ksenia Sobchak would be “ideal”. Then the TV channel RTVI, citing a source close to the presidential administration, said that Sobchak will soon announce the decision to go on elections of the President.
