Russians queue to register candidate opposed to Ukraine offensive

MOSCOW: Queing on a cold winter day in Moscow, Siberian nurse Natalia Avdeyeva said she wanted to make sure at least one opponent to Moscow’s dragging Ukraine offensive was registered for the upcoming presidential election.
A former liberal lawmaker who then moved into political circles accepted by the Kremlin, Boris Nadezhdin has emerged as an unlikely candidate for “peace” ahead of the vote.
Thousands of Russians across the country and abroad have been lining up to register his name to challenge President Vladimir Putin at the ballot box in March.
