Civil servant says people who ask tricky questions should be shot
“Would be nice to shoot 4 people, then everyone might calm down,” the official said.
The head of the district administration in Karelia said at a meeting of the city council that shooting four people would be a good idea.
A scheduled meeting was held in the Olonets City Council in October. When some of the members started arguing, the administration head proposed to shoot four citizens for their tricky questions.
Sergei Prokopiev responded to a remark of one of the deputies who said a mass grave in the cemetery should be renovated. The measure he proposed was rather radical. “Would be nice to shoot 4 people, then everyone might calm down,” said Prokopiev.
The complaint about the official was sent to the head of Karelia, Artur Parfenchikov, as well as Russian prosecutor general Yuri Chaika.
