On Wednesday, October 24, the governor of St. Petersburg, Georgy Poltavchenko, said that he did not call the inhabitants of the northern capital "goons", and the press "overly broadly" replicated what he said.
In addition, Poltavchenko today said that he did not want to comment on the flash mob, which gave fans of the football club "Zenit". Last Friday, hundreds of football fans in the Petrovsky stadium, where the head of the region was also present in an accessible, song form, explained who they consider to be the main goon.
Meanwhile, during the trips of George Poltavchenko and Dmitry Medvedev around the northern capital, traffic jams in the city turned from many kilometers to almost endless ones. And the construction of a new football arena in St. Petersburg has already spent 44 billion rubles.
Also Poltavchenko today called on all citizens to root for the St. Petersburg football club Zenit.
