Victory is virtually inevitable for Vladimir Putin in Russia’s presidential election on Sunday.

But there are seven other challengers on the ballot.

One is reality TV star Ksenia Sobchak, an opposition candidate whose political programme is seen as close to Kremlin’s due to family connections.

She’s held a rally in Moscow, and announced she’ll create a new liberal party.

Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Moscow.
