One of the founders of the Agatha Christie group put forward his candidacy for elections to the City Duma of the city of Asbest, Sverdlovsk Region. The musician claims to be a deputy, having started his political career as an independent candidate.

Information about Samoilov’s decision is confirmed by the data of the local territorial election commission. City elections will be held in a month and a half – on September 11th.

As you know, Vadim Samoilov considers Asbest to be his small homeland. His parents moved there from Yekaterinburg shortly after the birth of their son. It was in Asbest that the future rocker grew up and became interested in music. For the past few years, Samoilov has been living in Yekaterinburg, but very often in Asbest, visiting his parents’ house.
