Reportedly, Just Russia leader Sergey Mironov said that his faction intends to appeal to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the State Duma session, demanding the resignation of the head of Krasnodar region Alexander Tkachev. According to Just Russia, Tkachev doesn’t cope with the duties of the leader of the region.
Mironov also said that Just Russia faction insists on a parliamentary investigation of the circumstances of the tragedy in Krasnodar region. "Just Russia faction calls for a parliamentary investigation into the circumstances of the catastrophe to determine the effectiveness of the government bodies and officials’ activities", Mironov said at the State Duma plenary session.
According to Just Russia, great responsibility for the tragedy devolves on the governor of Krasnodar region Alexander Tkachev. Just Russia believes that the local authorities failed to provide adequate public notification of the approaching disaster, and it led to the large numbers of victims.
Alexander Tkachev responded to Mironov’ criticism by offering him to try himself for this job and then to discuss his actions. "It is big-time politics ... Will it be in a different way if they put Mironov here? I doubt it ... First try and then judge," Tkachev said.
Analysts believe that Tkachev is very convenient for the Kremlin, since he actually guarantees complete peace in mind in the objectively difficult region. His resignation, "even for such a significant occasion is unlikely." In addition, it is known that the President treats him "not bad". The Legislative Assembly elections are scheduled for October, and the political regime in the region is ground under the manual control of one person. If Tkachev is removed, the situation will become uncontrollable.
