Almost all the actions of the Mayor Sobyanin have caused metropolitan public's discontent and numerous videos, petitions demanding the resignation of the Mayor and comments on forums and social networks have appeared in the Internet. Even the fact that the Moscow authorities have consistently reported on its work on the capital improvement does not save the situation, increasing the ranks of the discontented, and the inhabitants of the city are already planning not only collecting signatures for the resignation of Sobyanin, but also a series of protests.
