In Saratov, the pensioner met State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin on the street and criticized him. The politician announced this on Friday, April 30, on his Instagram page.
“What happens? They have been stealing in the country for many years, lying and praying to God. How can a person understand this? ” – said a woman to Volodin, criticizing corruption in the country.
She added that high inflation does not allow her to accumulate “coffin” money. In addition, the woman noted a sharp jump in food prices and a lack of benefits.
“Here I am – I was 90, I have no benefit, no! When there were difficult moments, very – home front workers were equated with labor veterans, a discount on housing is 50%, and now that’s it, ”said the pensioner.
Volodin, in turn, promised to once again meet with the woman and help her.
Later that day, during a meeting with students of the Saratov State Law Academy, the State Duma speaker said that government officials must keep their promises. When an elderly person wants to talk to you, you need to listen to him and try to do everything to help, Volodin noted.
