On Thursday, November 24, a journalist from Komsomolskaya Pravda asked the Kremlin’s official representative the following question…

… – Dmitry Sergeevich, a few hours ago, Alexander Sapozhnikov was dismissed from the post of city manager of Chita. He resigned and went to the front. He called me – he says, the most amazing thing is that people meet him – they smile: “Oh, Alexander Mikhailovich, you are with us!” We talked a lot about Oleg Kozhemyako. Do not think that a new phenomenon is being born, it can give an additional impetus, a breath of fresh air – both for the mobilization campaign and, in general, for the entire special operation. What does the Kremlin think about this?

“Well, this is not entirely related to the position of the Kremlin,” Peskov replied. – We know that there are many patriots, many people related to the army, who in these difficult days decide to use their skills, their combat experience for the good of the motherland.

This is exactly how we do it.

Of course, such people cause feelings of pride …

– Thank you. We share.
