Bryansk deputy Kolomeytsev wants prostitution legalized
Aleksandr Kolomeytsev, the Bryansk regional council Deputy, businessman with a large family, spoke for legalization of prostitution in the country.
The Deputy, who previously had criticized the current Government, now is proposing to legalize prostitution on Bryansk TV show Vdrebezgi.
The Deputy argues that nowadays many of the "civilized nations" have legalized prostitution. Kolomeytsev addressed his proposal to State Duma deputies Nikolai Valuev and Valentina Mironova, since, in his view, they were the ones who could speak to President Putin about it.
"Nikolai Sergeyevich, I would like you to ask questions. Prostitutes vote too, they are people who are not just after sex, they also need something to eat. Protect them, protect those who need them, from diseases and from infections," Aleksandr Kolomeytsev admonished.
However, the businessman did not say exactly how many prostitutes had voted for him during the Bryansk election. He also did not specify whether he intended to provide the hotels he owns for new brothels.
Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
