"Well, I blurted it out. I am an ordinary person after all." Glatskikh says conscience does not allow her to resign
The Urals official allegedly said the phrase that the state owes nothing to young people by accident.
Director of the Youth Policy Department of the Sverdlovsk region, Olga Glatskikh granted the first interview after the scandal. Earlier, the official was removed from office for saying about the state, which owes nothing to children.
“I think that the cases that were aimed at the youth of the Sverdlovsk region, which were created after my arrival ... my conscience and even the human factor do not allow to quit it, to abandon about 4 thousand guys involved in our events,” said Olga Glatskikh in an interview with blogger Sergey Kolyasnikov.
According to the Urals official, from the moment of her removal, the launch of two projects was canceled in the region. Glatskikh added that she said the phrase that the state owes nothing to young people by accident: "Well, I blurted it out ... I am an ordinary person after all."
To recap, at the beginning of November, at a meeting with young people Glatskikh uttered a scandalous phrase: “The state generally owes you nothing, your parents owe you because they gave birth to you, the state did not ask them to give birth to you.” This way the official spoke on the financial assistance of the state to parents who cannot pay for the trips of their children to competitions.
