Ural city mayor hospitalized after a fight
The police are yet to disclose details of the incident.
Alexey Stasyonok, 30, the youngest mayor in the Sverdlovsk region, was hospitalized with a head injury. The mayor of Nizhnyaya Tura suffered during a fight in Pyshma, reports Otkryty Lesnoi.
The Central City Hospital of Verkhnyaya Pyshma confirmed that Alexey Viktorovich Stasyonok, born in 1988, was indeed their patient with a head injury, but said he refused hospitalization after first aid was provided to him.
According to the portal, Stasyonok has an apartment in Verkhnyaya Pyshma and he drives his Land Cruiser there on a regular basis. The police are yet to disclose details of the incident. According to the official theory voiced in the Nizhnyaya Tura administration, Stasyonok is on vacation in Ibiza, Spain. In reality, Stasyonok was in Verkhnyaya Pyshma at that time. According to an insider, Stasyonok was beaten by PSC men, whom he had promised contracts, but failed to keep his promise.
“There were no injuries and no fight with a PSC. I am on vacation now, at my Verkhnyaya Pyshma home. Thank God, no emergencies happened to me,” the Sverdlovsk branch of United Russia quoted the Nizhnyaya Tura mayor as saying.
The Prosecutor General's Office had earlier accused the Moscow region’s ex-official of exceeding official authority, taking a bribe on an especially large scale, and forgery, and demanded to seize assets worth of 9 billion rubles ($135 million) from him.
