Recall that the rumors about the resignation Astakhov went over last week, citing sources in the presidential administration and the Duma. They noted that ombusdman wrote the application at own will, however it was not caused by the scandalous phrase “so, how was your swim,” and claims AP in connection with the alleged conflict of interest around the business son Astakhov.
Nevertheless, the very Commissioner for children’s rights for a long time was silent, being confined to a statement in his instagram that the Lord tests people to Petrovsky post.
However, Friday night he finally confirmed that he wrote the statement, although until today there remained the question of whether it will be signed by Vladimir Putin.
Read, as the press service Astakhov denied it.
Now, according to Peskov, he retains only “de jure” and “return from leave leave this place of work.”
