According to him, the Senator “is trying to destroy the organization, to seize the property and split the veterans ‘movement among people with disabilities”.
In addition, Chepurny, Klintsevich has sent him a letter in which he called speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, Putin’s successor, saying that “the successor will give him immense powers.”
“The successor of the President only defines the Russian people, through democratic elections, and no one else,” said Putin in the answer has promised to understand the conflict.
He Klintsevich said that “there are no letters indicating that the successor of the President did not write and did not send”. He called them “a forgery, concocted with nefarious purposes” and stated that the investigation will establish who sent out such letters on its behalf.
