I have a different task now – it's necessary to create a new political party.

We've uncovered those violations. We will be compiling an information database which will allow us to gather all documentation to take to court.

Everybody needs to develop. Those who stop, go into retirement. And when you understand that in business you have already achieved certain results and can't help your country any more, you start to think of other ways of doing so. This was why I looked into politics. It's right here that I can make our country better.

It will be an efficient party. There are challenges that our country is evidently facing, and they have to be dealt with in an efficient way. Those efficient ways are presented in my programme, and let the citizens decide whether they think it's a right-wing, left-wing or centrist party. I always start with the task at hand. And our task is: how to make our citizens rich, successful, free and ready to link their destiny and destiny of their children to Russia.

The citizen must be a foundation of all State policies. And these policies shouldn't serve the interests of the State, but the State should serve the citizen. Secondly – I believe we must create a single market with Europe. Russia without Europe – and vice versa – can't compete in a new globalised world. It's absolutely impossible. And finally, I strongly believe that only a true manager with extensive experience in running large systems can lead our country into the new competent field.

Not necessarily. Firstly, there's an election virtually every month, every year in the regions and we can take all of them. And, after all, I don't think that the state of Duma will last that long in the current climate of political mistrust from our citizens.

On this point I categorically disagree with you. We live in a very dynamic world. Our society has woken up. Politics is on everybody's mind. And the last two weeks of the campaign could reveal some serious surprises.

I can't even contemplate such a scenario. If it comes to a runoff, I will be the second candidate.

I wouldn't accept any post at all in the current system because its' a monopoly. Even Prime-Minister is a purely technical post as a proxy for the Kremlin. So I will create my own party.

I will build my party from scratch together with those who share my values, with our citizens who want change, and in accordance with my programme, my platform which will be constantly expanded by new ideas submitted by citizens. Moreover, I want to build a party on a completely new basis – citizens will submit their ideas to leaders and heads of teams who will tackle those different issues. We have to use this grassroots activism – not a single party in Russia does that, and we want to build exactly that kind of party.

Once again, I am the project of my parents.

I want to ensure living standards for all workers are as good as those who work for me.

I'm seriously motivated to continue my fight for the presidency.

I take comfort in the fact that we're seeing a return to civil society. People are no longer being passive and this is very positive. I'm very much against any revolution. I know our history too well, and all revolutions in Russia have ended in bloodshed and dramatic drops in living standards.
