Former acting head of Sevastopol accused ex-governor Ovsyannikov of large-scale theft
Resignation of the official may be associated with his low public rating.
The so-called former “people's mayor” and the acting head of Sevastopol, Alexei Chaly, called the resignation of governor Dmitry Ovsyannikov “an absolute good” for the city, and considered the work of the dismissed official and his team a major theft that deserves the attention of law enforcement, RBC reports.
July 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the resignation of Ovsyannikov. Federal authorities got rid of the figure with high anti-rating before the autumn elections, said the head of the Political Expert Group Konstantin Kalachev in a conversation with The Insider journalist.
Mikhail Razvozhaev was appointed the acting head. The new head will be elected in September. In addition, in September there will be elections of deputies of the Legislative Assembly, for which Alexei Chaly has also nominated.
