Kommersant: regional officials are unofficially unauthorized to rest abroad

17 января 2023, 05:57
The recommendation is made in the field of scandals related to vacations of officials abroad.

Kommersant found out that in a number of Russian regions, there is an unspoken recommendation for local officials and deputies, according to which their rights to travel outside the country for vacation are limited. For example, the head of the Vologda Region, Oleg Kuvshinnikov, a representative of United Russia, "strongly recommended" that deputies and officials of the region "refrain from traveling to foreign countries".

Ulyanovsk Governor Alexei Russian - Communist Party - signed an order that representatives of the authorities until further notice "recommended to refrain" from such trips. The head of the "United Russia" faction in the Tambov Regional Duma, Yuri Pluzhnikov, "in connection with the current military-political situation in the country and in the world," recommended that party members refrain from traveling outside the country.

Similar recommendations apply in Mari El, Chuvashia and North Ossetia.

Recall that at the beginning of the month, Kursk deputy Maxim Vasiliev found himself in the center of a scandal after he recorded a video of him drinking in a bar in Mexico and sending New Year's greetings to his homeland. In addition, the deputy of the Vologda Regional Duma Denis Dolzhenko was excluded from the supporters of "United Russia" due to the fact that he "committed actions discrediting the party" - published on his page in the social network a photo from a run in Dubai.
