MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The campaign office of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is participating in the 2018 presidential election, will start airing pre-election advertisement videos on TV channels starting from Monday, the campaign press secretary said Friday.

"You will see the videos on February 19," Andrei Kondrashov told reporters.

The official added that Putin's authorized representatives would not be in the pre-election videos, because Russia's legislation prohibits such activities.
