Medvedev wished good health to residents of Komi, where heating season is about to collapse
The Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has once again become a target for the public discussion.
This time, the Prime Minister wished good health to the population of the Komi Republic, where heating season is on the brink of collapse, when congratulating them with a 95-year anniversary of the autonomy foundation.
Telegram with a congratulation from Dmitry Medvedev, in which he noted the dynamic growth of the republic's development, was posted on the Cabinet of Ministers’ official website. The final words of this very telegram (“I wish you good health, success and all the best,” this is how the Prime Minister ended his greetings to the republic’s citizens) caused outrage among the public.
In recent years, the Komi Republic has appeared in the news and information stream mainly as a region with its upcoming heating season in jeopardy.
The interim Head of the Region Sergey Gaplikov has already sent a complaint to President Vladimir Putin on this issue and reported the poor condition of the Vorkuta Central Heating and Power Plant, owned by oligarch Viktor Vekselberg. Shortly after receiving the information, Putin ordered to conduct an inspection.
It is not the first time that Dmitry Medvedev has been in the center of a public scandal because of his wishes. His words to teachers (“No money? Start a business!”) have caused a public outcry, with about 300 thousand Russians signing a petition for his resignation. Previously, in a conversation with pensioners he said: "There is no money, but hang on there!"
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
