This certainly seems to be the case for Oleksiy Azarov, the 41-year-old son of Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov. After living abroad in Europe for years, he has embarked on a political career back home in Ukraine. The younger Azarov is running for parliament in a single-mandate district in eastern Ukraine.

While the father heads the pro-presidential Party of Regions’ election list, the son is campaigning in constituency 47, which covers the city of Slovyansk and a couple of districts in Donetsk Oblast, the party’s hotbed of support in past years.
