Astrakhan Duma member expelled from United Russia following drunken brawl and waving with ID card
The party considered the parliamentarian damaged the party’s reputation.
The presidium of the general council of the United Russia ordered to expel an Astrakhan Duma member Vladimir Sukharev from the party. The parliamentarian caused a drunken brawl in a restaurant, demonstrating his ID of a member of the United Russia.
“Your impertinent, put it mildly, behavior and the fact that you appeared in public in a dissolute state damages the party’s reputation. We had warned on more than one occasion that this kind of behavior was going to be punished,” secretary of the general council of the party Andrey Turchas commented upon the incident.
This is about the incident that took place on the night of February 19, 2019 in an Astrakhan-based restaurant. Police detained Vladimir Sukharev in a state of intoxication. The staff members say the Duma member worried other visitors, turned odd and threatened the waiters while waving with his Duma member’s ID card. Astrakhan police have already initiated a case against Sukharev under article 20.21 of the Administrative Offenses Code of the Russian Federation (disorderly conduct).
