The village administration building, surrounded by a fence, was an impregnable bastion for almost a month. Against the backdrop of a political crisis, Acting Andrey Shornikov, who was fired from his post by the deputies, said that their decision was not legal and refused to leave the building. More than a dozen strong guys appeared in the administration, who did not let anyone in except employees, including Yulia Reichert, appointed acting. heads instead of Shornikov. Any attempts to enter inside rested on a group of aggressive young people. Residents who needed something from officials communicated with specialists through the fence.

But the security forces decided otherwise. According to the publication 47news, on Friday, September 2, the Investigative Committee, with the support of OMON, opened Shornikov's apartment in St. Petersburg, and also entered the administration with a search. The reason was a criminal case on the fact of forgery of documents. Shornikov was not found either at home or at work. He himself told reporters that he was walking around the village, but did not get in touch again.

“The Investigative Committee, with the support of OMON, was in the building from 9 am to 8 pm, searched every office”, - Simonov said, “now we will start an inventory, we will look for documents. After all, nothing was handed over to us, neither a seal, nor passwords to the server. In addition, this week we will hold a council of deputies and elect the head”ю

After that, Shornikov had to leave the post. head, as he was offered to head the city of Kirovsk. But there the deputies did not accept him, then the official returned to the village named after Sverdlov and a new political crisis broke out: the council of deputies split into two parts, which met separately and made decisions independently of each other. As a result, after the formal dismissal of Shornikov, he barricaded himself in the administration for a month. All this time, his electronic digital signature was revoked, and all movements of money through the Treasury were blocked, however, the administration managed to conclude contracts and carry out work. The winning group of deputies intends to protest every financial decision of Andrey Shornikov from the moment of his formal dismissal.
