The leader of Sverdlovsk branch of party “Patriots of Russia” Sergey Arutin intends to create a movement in honor of the former head of region, member of the Federation Council Eduard Rossel. He said this to “Kommersant”.
The movement called “Rossel is our Governor!” is meant to draw attention to the need to use his experience and knowledge, explained Arotin.
“The media now try to turn over, as if we want to put Rosell against the Governor Yevgeny Kuyvasheva, we convert it into a political moment,” he said.
Rossel himself called the idea of creating movement in his name crazy. According to him, the representative of the Sverdlovsk “Patriots of Russia” did not consult with him. “There is a Governor Kuyvashev Evgeny, he will go to the polls, I support him”, — said the Senator.
