The head of the Sovetsky district of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug Evgeny Burenkov will pay a fine for formal communication with journalists. Vyacheslav Ulyanov, editor of the 2gorod media portal, told URA.RU about this.
“We have collected more than 80 questions for the mayor. Burenkov did not answer in text “does he have a conscience” and “why does he live in the neighboring city of Yugorsk, leading the Sovetsky district,” but sent in response links to his page on social networks, where he posted videos. We considered this answer to be incorrect and contacted the prosecutor’s office. As a result, the magistrate court sided with the editors, considered the mayor’s response improper and fined him 5 thousand rubles,” Ulyanov said.
The Sovetsky District Magistrate Court ruled that Burenkov violated Article 5.39 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation. The minimum fine for officials for unlawful refusal to provide information on it is 5,000 rubles, the maximum is 10,000 rubles.
The head of the district, in a conversation with an agency correspondent, said that he remains unconvinced. He now plans to appeal the verdict. The editors of the 2Cities portal reported that they are preparing a new pool of questions for the chapter.
Earlier, URA.RU wrote that the head of the rural settlement of Agirish in the Sovetsky district, Galina Kritsyna, was sentenced to a fine for her long response to the district ombudsman Natalya Strebkova. She was accused of obstructing the activities of the Commissioner for Human Rights.
