Police officers and social activists raided the store of an entrepreneur from Pervouralsk, who was trying to become a deputy of the local city duma, and confiscated several blocks of cigarettes. This was reported to URA.RU by a source familiar with the operation.
“The security forces seized several blocks of cigarettes from the store,” the source said. The source clarified that brawls and fights were constantly taking place near the entrepreneur’s store. One of them was photographed by eyewitnesses.
In addition, crumpled plastic cups and piles of bottles were found around the store. Most of them are dumped on the lawn. At the disposal of URA.RU there are no contacts of the entrepreneur himself. The editors are ready to give him the opportunity to speak.
The press secretary of the Sverdlovsk Main Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Valery Gorelykh, confirmed the information about the raid, but called the commentary on this topic premature. “The main thing in the work of the police and social activists is not self-promotion, but the inevitability of punishment for violators. And for it to come, a certain period is needed to conduct surveys of local residents and owners of the outlet, examinations, analysis of video surveillance around the mini-store, and so on. Now the issue of initiating an administrative case is being decided in the territorial police department,” said Colonel Gorelykh.
Previously, the police stopped traders of unmarked cigarettes. The security forces took the goods from two sisters from Novouralsk, who are probably connected with illegal trade.
