“Criticism of the party in power and its supporters is understandable. The higher living standards rise, the more people demand from authorities. And this is right, this is the way it should be. To take a simple example, the population of Penza has not increased over the past few years but it is almost impossible to drive on the city’s roads because of a growing number of cars,” the head of region stressed.

According to Vasily Bochkarev, it means that living standards in Penza are rising while the number of residents critical of the authorities has not declined.

“We should react correctly to criticism voiced by the people, public organizations and the press. If we are criticized, it does not mean that we are bad but that we actually work. At the same time, it is necessary to listen to criticism and make right conclusions,” the governor concluded.
