A video appeared on social networks, in which Russian servicemen complain that they had to buy all the uniforms at their own expense, and say hello to the governor of the Voronezh region Alexander Gusev, who came to the unit on October 8. One of the men claims that Gusev did not even approach them and ask how they were doing.
- Guys, how are you, happy to come?
- Pants full of joy.
The local publication Bloknot Voronezh contacted the press service of the government of the Voronezh region for a comment after the video appeared online. The press service thanked the servicemen for "a positive attitude in assessing what is happening."
“After all, it is not always smooth when such important processes take place, as they say, from the wheels. On the specified date, the governor actually visited the military unit where the mobilized people, including those from the Voronezh region, are staying, and watched their practice firing. It is possible that the participants in the video were practicing military operations at that moment and did not have the opportunity to directly contact the governor.
The publication also claims that as a result of Gusev's visit, it was decided to provide assistance and support to the military unit.
