Primorye MPs set to overthrow the governor

In connection with heat supply disruption in a number of cities and districts in Primorye (Russia’s far east), local MPs are set to suggest Yevgeni Nazdratenko, the governor, to voluntarily resign. Yuri Rybalkin, the local Duma’s economics committee chairman, in several cities and towns of Primorye, over 50,000 people, including 8,000 children, are currently getting frozen. On December 7th-8th, the local Duma is to discuss heat supply disruption with the President’s regional plenipotentiary Konstantin Pulikovski and regional governor Nazdratenko being invited, Interfax reports. According to the draft resolution, the deputies intend to ask Russia’s president Vladimir Putin to declare a state of emergency in Primorye and introduce the direct presidential rule there.
