Political Ad for Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin – “The Man That Changed Everything” – Part 1 (2013)

Sergei Sobyanin was elected mayor of Moscow in 2010 for a 5-year term. In 2013, he “unexpectedly” resigned his post early. Once early elections were announced to find a new mayor, Mr. Sobyanin changed his mind and threw his hat in the ring again. In September 2013, he was elected again for a 5-year term. Many consider this a rigged election to ensure Sobyanin’s re-election, which would have been harder in 2015. See this LINK for more on the controversy.

In Part 1, Sobyanin’s marketing team highlights many of the infrastructure improvements that have taken place in Moscow over the last few years – roads, parking, public transportation.
