The rally in Elista on Sunday, 17 nobracket: YouTube channel “the Mouthpiece of Moscow”
In Elista held a consistent rally to demand the resignation from the post of head of city administration of the former head of the breakaway Donetsk national Republic (DND) Dmitry Trapeznikov. The campaign came about two thousand citizens, including the Kalmyks of Astrakhan and Volgograd regions, reports news Agency “FederalPress”.
In addition to the requirements of resignation Trapeznikov, the protesters stated the need to return direct election of the head of Elista. It is also said that the candidate for this position must reside in the Republic for at least five years.
The shares were observed by representatives of the Kalmyk political elite: former head of administration head of the region Igor Chalakov and former Minister of land and property relations of the Republic of Purva Mantaev.
“FederalPress” noted that the Parliament of Kalmykia has divided the powers of the head of administration of Elista, separating them from the duties of mayor: so Trapeznikov essentially runs the city Manager. The mayor will probably be one of the local deputies, says the Agency.
Protests in Elista last since the appointment of the Trapeznikov in administration of Elista in September of this year. His candidature was proposed by the head of Kalmykia Batu Hasikov.
The fate Trapeznikova, there was no news after he, in September of 2018 left the Donbass, after spending seven days at the head of the DNI after the death of the first head of the Republic Alexander Zakharchenko. In the administration of the DNR Trapeznikov at different times was engaged in foreign and domestic policy, led regulatory authorities and fought on the side of the breakaway Republic.
