275 thousand people signed petition for Medvedev's resignation
Petition for the resignation of the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev published on Change.org collected 275,000 signatures. It lacks 25 thousand votes for the document to be submitted to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin.
The letter for resignation of the Head of the Cabinet of Ministers was posted on Change.org by a Moscow resident Aleksandr Li.
The dudgeon of Russians, whose opinion was voiced by the petitioner, was due to the Prime Minister's advice to teachers during his speech at the forum Territoriya smyslov (Territory of meanings), when Medvedev encouraged them to go into business or find a part-time job.
Earlier in May, the Prime Minister's words induced a similar reaction during his visit to Crimea.
"There just isn’t any money now. You hold on in there. Best wishes and take care!," the Prime Minister replied to a question about the scant pension.
Within a short time after its publication, the petition for Medvedev's resignation collected more than 80 thousand votes. In recent years, the rate of signature collection has markedly decreased.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
