The so-called Deputy Prime Minister of occupied Crimea Ruslan Balbec runs for the MP with the "United Russia" Party in the State Duma of Russia.
Thus, Balbec plans to become "the first representative of the Crimean Tatar people in the Government of the Russian Federation."
- I am proud that I’ve got a chance to become the first representative of the Crimean Tatar People in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, - Balbec wrote on Facebook.
The Vice Premier said that a pseudo Head of Crimea Sergey Aksenov personally supported his initiative.
- This is my conscious choice to go into politics, Sergey Aksenov supported me in this initiative, said Balbec.
