Regardless of the outcome of a trial, I ask you, Mr President, to preserve the Volgograd freely and openly choose their head of the city. I want to be understood correctly. I'm not asking you to leave me mayor. I ask that you keep for my countrymen guaranteed by the Constitution of our country the right to choose their own power.
Dear Dmitry! I know that the situation in Volgograd today to observe not only thousands of Volgograd, but heads of municipalities of the Volgograd region, South Federal District of Russia as a whole. And by what it is over, I am sure, will judge the prospects of Russian local government as a whole В».
