Sobchak said that he is a wealthy man, and the campaign will be funded through donations, the wealthy.

“All my income — the result of severe and visible all of the work. I pride myself on my autonomy and independence. I will be able to raise money for his campaign — and it is also very important, because I probably won’t have time to collect their pennies from a million of poor people, I hope to gather them among the elite,” she said in her letter.
