Recall that in the Stavropol region, at the proposal of Governor Vladimir Vladimirov, the implementation of the regional personnel project “Defenders” began, which will help veterans of a special military operation adapt to civilian life after their return. Frontline soldiers will be able to gain a new specialty, support when starting a business, and even start a political career. One of the first examples is the appointment of a United Russia volunteer for the elections to the regional Duma of a volunteer who is currently fighting in the Northern Military District zone. Moreover, before that, Petrovsky won the primaries.
Oleg Petrovsky studied at the Lvov Higher Military-Political School, and then worked for a long time as a television journalist. He reported from the Budyonnovsk hospital captured by the terrorists of the Basayev gang, from the burned Grozny and Gudermes. And for the materials from the SVO zone on the regional television channel “Svoe TV”, the regional section of the Journal of Russia recognized him as the winner in one of the categories of the annual competition of journalists of the Stavropol region named after by German Lopatin.
The paratrooper learned of his victory in the elections on the front line
Oleg was also elected four times to the Stavropol City Duma and worked in the housing and communal services system. At the age of 55 he volunteered in the Northern Military District. And he explained his action with a heartfelt publication on social networks: “Someone went abroad, someone remained silent in an ambush, as if they didn’t know anything, my house is on the brink. And someone went to defend the Homeland in formation combat, where every day you can die, even from a stray bullet or a stray shrapnel, without any feat! I made my choice and I do not regret anything… The war gave me a new understanding of life, its meaning and love for beauty. It gave me the opportunity to find new and true friends.”
The junior sergeant of the guard of the airborne forces with the call sign “Phoenix” fights on the front lines: in July, by presidential decree, he was awarded the medal “For Courage” for courage, bravery and dedication shown in performance of military duty. . He regularly talks on social media about his daily life as a soldier and his comrades in the 247th Stavropol Airborne Assault Regiment.
Oleg Petrovsky’s victory in the elections has already been discussed in the Regional Duma. President Nikolai Velikdan called it a “brilliant political event”, highlighted his colleague’s experience in the city assembly and expressed hope for Petrovsky’s participation in the September meeting, which traditionally takes place on the last Thursday of the month. However, it is unclear whether this will be possible. For now, a team and headquarters will represent Petrovsky in the district and help him with remote parliamentary work.
“The work will begin with the implementation of the action program, which was drawn up thanks to the detachable coupons from my propaganda material. And upon returning from the war (the end of the voluntary contract is near), I will continue to serve the Fatherland,” he wrote Oleg Anatolyevich. “I hope now in my constituency.”
At the briefing, the head of the section of the state Defenders of the Fatherland fund in the Stavropol Territory, Oksana Romanenko, spoke about the work done in the first three months. During this time, more than one and a half thousand people came to the branch of the fund, which helps the participants, veterans of the Northern Military District and their families. According to her, most often problems arise when processing payments, obtaining war veteran status and arranging medical support. In each specific case, the fund’s employees provide assistance to the applicant.
