The deputies of the city Council is not so short a memory I hope to forget that the same lady Tereshkova as the Deputy of the state Duma of the Russian Federation in 2014 voted for the annexation of Crimea. I don’t know if she was awarded the distinction “For the return of the Crimea”, but I know that from the aggression of Russia against Ukraine, it brought death and destruction to our land. Killed thousands of people, tens of thousands maimed, hundreds of thousands were forced to become refugees, destroyed businesses and infrastructure!” — posted by M. Stepanov.
