Pensioner of the Tomsk region Victor Smirnyagina that sent Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev its 60-ruble boost to their pensions, received a message about the money transfer. About it reports TV channel TV2.
“I received a notification about money transfer that I sent to Dmitry Medvedev. The reason — refusal of the consignee from making this translation,” — said Smirnyagin.
He noted that the funny thing about this situation that “would again have to pay 133 rubles per return.” “Pick up the translation, I will not, I have no money,” added the man.
On 20 April it was reported that residents in the village of Bely Yar Smirnyagin translated Medevedeva 60 rubles, having accompanied the message with the comment: “the Village — the capital — to hangover”. For sending he paid 133 rubles.
Smirnyagin urged all senior citizens to follow his example. “Can be, even so they’ll hear us. Hear, if throwing them a penny, which they shout and make noise incessantly,” he said.
