On Sunday, January 28, residents of Skadovsk are invited to the third assembly in support of the mayor Oleksandr Yakovliev. On Tuesday, January 30, at 12:00 activists plan to hold a rally in support of Oleksandr Yakovliev outside the regional Court of Appeal in Kherson. Because on Tuesday, at 13.30 the court will consider an appeal against the decision of the Skadovsk district court to remove Oleksandr Yakovliev from the post of mayor of Skadovsk for a year. The court chose this measure of punishment on December 28 in connection with an allegedly committed administrative offense related to corruption. We are talking about the so-called “corruption abuses” in the purchase of paint and stationery worth of 1,167 hryvnias.
Samopomich Union believes that the decision to dismiss the mayor of Skadovsk Oleksandr Yakovliev is another example of repression and a manifestation of selective justice. Ordinary citizens have also made a stand for their mayor. It was Oleksandr Yakovliev who was elected to the post of mayor of Skadovsk and was supported by more than 24% of the voters. In two years he has received even more support and respect among Skadovsk residents as a progressive, efficient and open mayor.
The court session will take place on January 30 at 13.30 in the Court of Appeal of the Kherson region. The rally will take place at 12.00. We invite media representatives to participate in the coverage of these events! Contact person for journalists:050 62 000 36 (Maryna)
