Yevgeny Kiselev represents Galina Starovoitova as a possible candidate for the post of President of the Russian Federation.

Starovoitova shares the facts of the autobiography, talks about the difficulties that those who are running for the post of head of state have to face,  Indicates the existence of women's discrimination in Russia, as well as women's jealousy of fellow women.

The topic of the military conflict in Chechnya is on the rise, as Starovoitova would have done if she had been the Minister of Defense.

Expresses his views on the possible withdrawal of Chechnya from Russia, talks about the talks with Dudayev.

Explains the existing contradictions in international law governing the sovereignty of the nation: on the one hand - the right of peoples to self-determination, on the other hand, the inviolability of state borders (treaty in Helsinki in 1975).

The statistics of referendums are given, the result of which is the change in the borders of some countries (in particular in the USSR), after the emergence of regions that declared themselves independent states.

The problem of development of democracy and democratic movement in Russia is considered.

G. Starovoitova tells how in 1989 she helped B.N. Yeltsin to write a report for the Plenum of the Central Committee.

But because of reports on the content of the text, Yeltsin was denied the opportunity to speak at the Plenum.

Recognizes the current disagreements with the course of the Russian president, speaks of the duplicity of many politicians, the inadmissibility of the return of the era of totalitarianism.

With humor he speaks about his appearance, about the posted photo collage in the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, where she is portrayed as a participant in a sports competition of the 1930s, ironically speaking about the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation G. Zyuganov.


Starovoitova Galina is a co-chairman of the Democratic Russia party.
