In his Instagram, he wrote that he spent four days in Moscow, and then went through the settlements of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, where he met with three thousand residents.
"During this time, a competition was announced here to protect me for 33 million rubles. Seven guards, you think, should guard me. It's okay, isn't it? Well, who does this in the apparatus, I don't understand? I have been talking with people for four months, shaking 40 thousand hands. You do these things while I'm away. Therefore, the competition should be canceled and everything should be left as it is", - Degtyaryov told subscribers.
Today, 23 November, the assignment was canceled.
Earlier it was reported that the authorities of the Khabarovsk Territory announced an open tender for the provision of security services, according to which seven security guards were to be hired for Degtyaryov to guard him around the clock, seven days a week.
Before that, Mikhail Degtyaryov intended to spend 800 thousand rubles on his security - it was a contract concluded for a month.
He admitted that he was strengthening the security because he did not feel safe. Earlier, in the building of the regional government on the floor where the office of the head of the Khabarovsk Territory is located, a wall was installed with a small opening for the metal detector frame.
Let us recall that this is not the first time residents are outraged by spending by the regional government. Only for buffets and banquets from the treasury of the region was spent from August to November a million rubles.
