Vladimir Volfovich was a deputy of all 8 convocations of the State Duma. His term lasted from January 11, 1994 to May 17, 2022 – 10,353 days. The founder of the Liberal Democratic Party forever inscribed his name in the history of modern Russia.
The head of the LDPR faction, Leonid Slutsky, about Vladimir Zhirinovsky:
“This is a politician who wrote his name in golden letters in the history of the Russian world and Russian civilization. A man who devoted himself entirely to serving people, serving Russia. The phenomenon of Zhirinovsky as a personality, as a politician, will be studied for a very long time.”
Today in the State Duma the exhibition “Zhirinovsky forever!”, which will be open until the end of the week, began its work. We are sharing with you several photos that are now presented on Okhotny Ryad.

I’d rather go somewhere in the taiga half-starved, but help people.”
