We will remind that the conflict Drozdov and Garmazhapova arose after the MP met her in the hallway of the legislative Assembly, obscenely misrepresented her name and did so in the presence of two other journalists. Then Garmazhapova began to demand from Drozdov’s apology, calling him the “Deputy of the Comb”, thereby Recalling the incident with the video of 2011, when the politician pushed the comb into the ballot box a stack of papers.
However, Garmazhapova an apology from the MP and has not received, although the representative of the “United Russia” Olga batalina and publicly denounced his colleague.
In the end, as it turned out today, Drozdov said about leaving on vacation, despite the fact that, according to his party, delivered a few days ago, before it was ready to work in a regular mode. Now, however, the politician intends to “week rest”.
Garmazhapova was supported not only by her colleagues from the recently established trade Union of journalists, made a sharp statement in the address of the Vice-speaker of the legislative Assembly, but activists of the movement “Spring”, staged by pushing the “comb” bundles of ballots in the “ballot box” at the door of Parliament.
