In Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, participants in the Leaders of Change in Yugra 3.0 program — officials from the district government, mayors and deputies — were forbidden to drink alcohol during training. This was told to URA.RU by a source in the Ugra political elite.
“At the previous stage, the scandal with tipsy students had to be settled by the first vice-governor Alexei Shipilov. By the May session in Kaliningrad, the organizers took into account the experience. Parties with elite alcohol were replaced with healthy lifestyles and sports, ”the insider reports.
Several program participants, on condition of anonymity, confirmed that the restrictions on alcohol were related to the incident at the Nizhnevartovsk restaurant. After that, Dmitry Tei left the program, whom insiders called among the instigators. The Department of Youth Policy, Civic Initiatives and External Relations of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug confirmed Tey’s expulsion from the program. An answer to the question of a URA.RU correspondent about the introduction of restrictions on alcohol is expected.
Earlier, URA.RU reported that Shipilov, the first vice-governor of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, had to deal with the drunken scandal of the Leaders of Change. Tei, a participant in the incident, said that he and his opponent simply argued loudly.
