Ksenia Sobchak Biography
(Socialite, TV Anchor)
Birthday: November 5, 1981 (Scorpio)
Born In: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Ksenia Sobchak is a Russian TV anchor, journalist, socialite, and actress who recently announced her decision to run against Vladimir Putin in the 2018 Russian Presidential election. The daughter of renowned politicians, she was previously better known as Russia's No.1 'it girl', as well as 'Russia's Paris Hilton'. Since her late teenage days, she has been a regular face on media for posing for Russian glamour magazines, co-writing and appearing in many TV shows, and for dating a number of oligarchs. However, she went through a severe transformation following her 30th birthday and decided to revisit her political roots to do something significant for the country. Troubled by the fraud accusations after the 2011 parliament elections, she began rallying with the opposition supporters. While she was mostly known for her reality shows, she later started hosting political talk-shows as well. Citing the fact that her father was once Putin's mentor, she has been dubbed as a spoiler candidate by many political analysts, even though she is determined to further the opposition’s cause.
