This was announced by the former Governor of the Kemerovo region Aman Tuleyev in conversation with journalist Andrei Vandenko, which is based on the interview published a book called “Aman Tuleyev. With my words written right.” Excerpt from the book quotes “Sibgeo”.
“As for this Vostrikova, in the process of our conversation I got the strong feeling that he is inveterate cynic. (…) A meeting with each family I started with a minute of silence. People are always up, and this was left to sit!” said Tuleyev.
According to him, at the meeting Vostrikov immediately started talking about money and asked how much power I can add. “Frankly, surprised at such statement of a question, asking: “How much do you need?” Says: “I Want to go to Sochi, buy an apartment and have it work”” — added the ex-Governor.
Tuleyev said that the victim “tried to reason with” the mother. She asked, shame on him, and said that he didn’t even remember about the dead children. “He cursed her. In front of me!” — concluded the former head of the Kemerovo region.
