The Communists fired on the Central city square, a volley of ten crackers on the eve of Sunday.

“Throwing accusations in the back of the departing Governor, we will not. Voluntarily leaving the post, he made a courageous, albeit under pressure from the Federal government. You need to roll up our sleeves to start to clean up the “Augean stables”,” — said the head of the regional branch of the party Dmitry Perevozkin.

Earlier on Monday, Mitin has declared that has decided to leave his post early and appealed to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin with the request to give him a new assignment.

Last week, sources in several media outlets announced the resignation Mitina and the appointment of acting head of the region the head of the Agency for strategic initiatives (ASI) Andrey Nikitin.
