Governor of the Kursk region Roman Starovoit and members of the city administration spent a week at the Wagner PMC training camp. Starovoit spoke about this in his Telegram channel.
“For the first week of the new year, I worked with colleagues from the administration of the Kursk region and Kursk people from the voluntary people’s squad in the Wagner PMC training camp, surrounded by real men — patriots of Russia. Hundreds of Kursk residents here and at the sites in our region have already completed a training course and will be able to protect their native land, as well as support our army if necessary, ”he said.
Starovoit accompanied his post with a video from the exercises. Some people's faces are blurred in the video. At the end of the video, Starovoit himself sits on the armor of the tank with a machine gun in his hands.
Earlier, the Kursk governor expressed indignation at the publication of a video from Mexico, where the deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Maxim Vasiliev pours beer into a glass, wishes everyone a Happy New Year, and wishes "a lot of money and good mood." “Just like thousands of my countrymen, I am outraged by the video greeting sent from Mexico by the deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Maxim Vasiliev. We live in a border region, and this puts forward additional requirements for the work and behavior of all authorities, and even more so for people’s deputies, ”he wrote.
