The governor of the region Roman Starovoit called the video greeting of the deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Maxim Vasiliev from the beach in Mexico on the eve of the New Year inappropriate. According to the head of the Kursk region, the thought commission will evaluate the ethics of Vasiliev’s behavior on vacation.
Recall that Maxim Vasilyev was at the center of a scandal after the publication of a New Year’s video with him on one of the beaches of Mexico. Vasiliev on video congratulates the Russians happy holiday in Spanish, drinks a cocktail and wishes “a lot of money and good mood”.
“Just like thousands of my countrymen, I am outraged by the video greeting sent from Mexico by the deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Maxim Vasiliev. We live in a border region, and this puts forward additional requirements for the work and behavior of all authorities,” Starovoit wrote on his Telegram channel.
He also pointed out that Vasiliev had been a member of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation for a long time, and was elected to the regional Duma as an independent deputy. Against this background, disciplinary measures cannot be applied against him along the party line.
Interestingly, Vasiliev called the video staged, pointing out that it was publicly leaked to the Network by “a representative of Western Ukraine, with whom they were friends before the special operation.” More read in material Public news service.
