The former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, vice-rector of Penza State University on employment and work with alumni Victor Simagin, who in 2015 had been Ivan Belozertsev's contender at the elections for the post of the region head, sharply criticized the quality of food in the children's hospital.

"These are photos of what children have to eat in the hospital. This cannot be called food. How can one speak about missiles, lasers, high-tech equipment and so on and feed children, whose body temperature sometimes reaches 40C, with this vile food? They do not even get butter on a round of bread!" he wrote on his Facebook profile.
Vladimir Simagin wondered what the people who come to Penza from remote villages and cannot supplement the hospital diet with homemade food should do in this case.
"Shame on those who care about their children in such a way!" the vice-rector of Penza State University added.
As it was reported before, Vladimir Simagin has two children – the son born 2016 and the daughter born in December 2017.
In 2015 Vladimir Simagin aspired to the position of governor of the Penza region. At the elections held on September 14 he was supported by 52,955 voters, which made up 7.75%. Ivan Belozertsev became a winner being supported by the absolute majority of voters – over 86% with the attendance of 62%.
In October 2017 Vladimir Simagin replaced Sergei Egorov in a position of PSU vice-rector with the change of the focus area from information policy and external relations to employment and work with alumni.
