Marat Safin has been elected to Russian Parliament. Safin is part of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia Party, which is currently being investigated for electoral fraud!
Pete Sampras supported Marat’s move into politics saying,
“In 20 years Marat will be the President of Russia. Marat is going to go a long way. He is very intelligent and articulate and he’s good with people, and that’s half the battle with being a politician.”
It currently seems like elections in Russia are fraudulent, so it is no surprised that he got elected. I’m wondering if his constituents actually wanted him in!
