The first Russian-speaking congressman may appear in the USA

Native Moldova Yuri Siretsky, who moved to the United States in 19 years of age, is registered as a candidate in the elections to the US Congress, which will be held simultaneously with the presidential 8 of November.

Siretsky, who is engaged in business, lives in the state capital California Sacramento. In 2014, he ran for mayor of the California city of Roseville and unexpectedly finished fourth, gaining 7% of votes.

“Yes, I am an official candidate, my name is included in the appropriate list, so my election campaign can be considered to have begun,” Siretsky told Komsomolskaya Pravda. “I’m running as an independent candidate.”

According to Siretsky, he does not want to join any of the parties because of the rejection of the American system of lobbyism. Among the reasons for which he decided to run, Yury Siretsky cites the absence of Russian-speaking politicians at the federal level.

“For example, I quite sincerely don’t understand why in the USA to this day there are no Russian-speaking politicians - carriers of Russian culture on a federal scale - neither congressmen, nor senators, nor governors" explains the Sacramento County candidate.

According to Siretsky, he hopes for an improvement in relations between the United States and Russia, since the countries, as he believes, are “doomed to cooperation.”

Until recently, as noted, only in some US states were representatives of the Russian-speaking diaspora included in city councils or assemblies - Alec Brooke-Red was a member of the Assembly of the State of NewYork, and Anton Konev is a member of the Albany City Council in New York State. However, no one has been represented at the federal level yet.
