Gazprom extinguishes the Eternal Flame, accusing the memorial of gas theft

In the village of Dalnee Konstantinovo, Nizhny Novgorod Region, an event, monstrous in its cynicism, took place: the regional administration of Gazprom turned off the gas that supported the Eternal Flame.

The district administration, on the balance of which is the memorial complex to the Fallen during the Great Patriotic War, filed a lawsuit for the “blue fuel” consumed within three years.

According to Yevgeny Mavrin, head of the Dalniy Konstantinov administration, the bill for the year of operation of the Eternal Flame amounted to 1.2 million rubles. There is no such money in the budget of the village, and now the authorities of the village are trying to come to an agreement with Gazprom, at least on the inclusion of gas on the days of May holidays – May Day and Victory Day.

Local residents cannot believe that the eternal flame was not eternal in the country that exports gas.

A similar case could have happened in another settlement of the region – Dzerzhinsk. There, the company “Gazprommezhregiongaz – Nizhniy Novgorod” is suing the town administration for the alleged illegal use of gas to maintain the Eternal Flame since 1956. According to the company, the debt is 5.7 million rubles. But in Dzerzhinsk, so far, it was not possible to turn off the fire in memory of those who died in the War.
