The news that arrived the day before that ONF activist Aleksey Klemeshov had become the mayor of the Kursk city of Lgov shocked both experts and local residents.
Let us remind you that just a few days ago, when the competition committee, which selects applicants for the mayor’s chair, announced that a representative of the Popular Front had reached the final, our publication published the opinion of experts who could not agree with this choice. And there are several reasons for this.
“People’s front-line soldier” Klemeshov became famous not at all for “people’s heroism”, he at one time, being the deputy head of the city of Lgov, contrived, you know, not entirely legal ways to get gravel near the carriage and make a way to his (!) Pond. Klemeshov in our area is a famous fisherman-hunter, his hobby has already turned into a business: he acquired his own reservoir and opened a specialized store. By the way, “thanks” to his own pond, not so long ago there was a scandal in the city because of a pipe that disappeared from the school boiler room and “miraculously” was adapted near the Klemeshov pond. Here he is ours – “people’s front-line soldier” Klemeshov! “, – told” MK Chernozemye “a representative of the commission, who did not share the desire of his other colleagues to seat the businessman in the chair of the mayor of Lgov.
There were other arguments “against”, which for some reason were not taken into account by all the deputies when approving the candidacy of the new head of the city.
“If Klemeshov is elected mayor, an aspen stake will be driven into the map of the Kursk region, and more precise coordinates – in the city of Lgov. Why? I explain. Not so long ago, the head of the region, Roman Starovoit, smashed the local authorities to pieces due to the fact that a forest was being cut down in the city. So, if Aleksey Klemeshov becomes mayor, the forest will be cut down on an even larger scale. Since the businessman Vladislav Kosogolov, who is involved in deforestation, is Klemeshov’s godfather. And according to the Russian tradition – the godfather is closer to a relative, so if elected, the new mayor will help the entrepreneur to destroy the forest in a relative way. Kosogolov chopped oaks, they say that the tree was used for furniture. And when the oaks run out, they will probably cut out poplars for boards for coffins – also good earnings. And then they will move to the aspen … The city is about to collapse without the “national hero” in the mayor’s chair. There is no trace of the former glory of Lgov, and if such a head of the city takes the helm, Lgov will completely disappear from the map of the region … ”, the representative of the commission voiced his concerns.
The Lgov people were also not delighted with the prospects of being residents of the city where Klemeshov would “rule”. Local activists even wrote an appeal to the regional authorities, in which they asked Governor Roman Starovoit to protect the city from such “economic rulers”.
“The Lgov people are against Klemeshov. But what about the regional authorities and members of the commission? Will they really go against the people? ”- our experts asked questions and soon received a tough, to some extent – antipopular, answer to everything in the form of electing a“ front-line soldier ”to the post of mayor of Lgov.
We turned to the members of the commission who made the initial decision on the candidates, with a request to explain why the authorities and the deputies, who had the last word, turned their backs on the townspeople?
“On the eve of the meeting, the commission received a recommendation from the regional leadership to support the candidacy of Aleksey Klemeshov. There is information that he became mayor with the support of another “veteran”, the current head of the city of Shchigry, Vladislav Shelest. According to some reports, it was Shelest’s activity that helped Klemeshov to pass an agreement with the Deputy Governor for Internal Policy Yuri Knyazev, – told us, without hiding his irritation, a representative of the competition committee. – Many members of the commission are ashamed of what happened. Some deputies do not hide feelings of shame either. Their attitude to the election of a new mayor is obvious – during the voting, six ballots were simply spoiled. Apparently, Vice-Governor Knyazev, knowing full well that the “Lgov decision” was a fatal mistake, in order to hide from shame, left the region for the duration of the competitive selection.
It so happened that … In the Kursk region, the “People’s Front” turns into a group to seize small towns and its further destruction.
Today the city of Shchigry, headed by a representative of the ONF, is in a deplorable state. Soon the same fate will befall Lgov. We do not exclude that both Lgov and Shchigry with such leaders will lose the status of cities and become parts of the Lgov and Shchigrovsky districts. This will be the biggest tragedy for the people of Kursk, who sincerely love their region! “
Experts believe that the governor and his team, in whose hands the fate of the region, is already obliged to take measures to prevent the collapse of small towns. In the end, whoever allowed the “front-line soldiers” to the throne, let them correct their mistakes …
