Russian State Duma says about growth of corruption, shaky occupation power in Crimea
Low level of organization of the occupation authorities in Crimea has led to negative consequences in the peninsula, State Duma MP from a Just Russia party Mihail Bryachak said in an interview with "Week's arguments. Crimea."
"As of today, the position of the United Russia party has been strongly shaken due to the ongoing events in Crimea related to the low performance of local authorities. They are formed, coordinated and controlled by one party. In fact, a monopoly of power has been formed, which leads to negative results in ensuring the well-being of people. Unfortunately, the only growth there is the growth of corruption," Bryachak said.
