… – How did the Kremlin, in particular, President Vladimir Putin, react to the fact that Dmitry Rogozin was wounded in Donetsk? – with such a question on Thursday, December 22, a journalist from Komsomolskaya Pravda turned to the official representative of the Kremlin. – Immediately the second question involuntarily arises. Maybe the Kremlin and the government should somehow regulate this spontaneous process associated with business trips of officials, former or current, I don’t know, to the Donbass, the Kherson region and Zaporozhye? In fact, this process is not controlled. Or is this normal, since everything is happening on our territory? I mean injuries and so on. This is not the first injury. Some officials and governors go there like home. Or should there be some kind of control?
Peskov answered these questions in some detail:
– Look, there are business trips of officials, and this is completely normal.
Officials visit Russian regions. And they will visit.
In addition, they are regions that require special attention now, in the transition period, in the period of their integration and adaptation in all spheres of the life of our great country.
And officials are forced to go there in large numbers. In addition, there are a large number of volunteers, volunteer organizations, who also provide invaluable help, and whose work has repeatedly been highly appreciated by the president.
As for this case (we are talking about an emergency related to Rogozin. – AG), where, unfortunately, there are dead and injured.
DPR Prime Minister Vitaly Khotsenko and Dmitry Rogozin were also injured. We, of course, first of all, express our condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
And we wish a speedy recovery to the injured.
In any case, staying in some areas of the DPR, LPR and other territories, unfortunately, is still dangerous, carries great risks, including risks to life.
But this does not mean that these conditions should prevent officials from carrying out their functions, and the people who are there, at the call of their hearts, from fulfilling their mission.
– Thank you.
