MOSCOW, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- Russia Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said Tuesday he will need at least $15 million to run a presidential election campaign.

"I need at least $15 million: $5 million for street advertising, $5 million for commercials and $5 million for printed products," Zhirinovsky told a news conference in Moscow.

Zhirinovsky and Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov will be the first nominees to be registered officially for the March 2, 2008, presidential elections by the Central Election Commission, IRA Novosti reported.

The presidential candidate said he will rely on "personal requests" to collect the funds.

Only six contenders remain to vie for presidency after the CEC removed seven independent candidates from the running.
