Igor Vostrikov participates in the primaries of United Russia party ahead of the nomination to the Council of People's Deputies of the Kemerovo region. RBC writes this with reference to deputy head of the regional party executive committee Stepan Dubkov.

"Igor Vostrikov is a participant in the primaries to appoint candidates from United Russia. Yesterday the participants met a deadline for submitting applications," he explained.

Igor Vostrikov refused to comment on the issue.

Earlier it became known that acting governor Sergey Tsivilev could take the lead on the list at the autumn elections to the Council of People's Deputies of the Kemerovo region. He will also run from the party to the post of the Kuzbass Head.

Recall Vostrikov lost his wife, sister and three children in the Zimnyaya Vishnya mall fire. He participated in a rally near the regional administration, where people demanded the resignation of Governor Aman Tuleev and local officials. Tsivilev (at the time the vice-governor) accused Vostrikov of "black PR." After that, the official knelt before the public and asked forgiveness from people who were surviving " challenging situation."

Vostrikov later said that he did not be huffy at Tsivilev, whom he considered a "good man." The fire killed 60 people, including 41 children. Governor of the region Aman Tuleev resigned after the tragedy, and then became a deputy and was elected the speaker of the regional Duma.
