“I would like to address the governor and tell him that we, particularly myself, are not governor’s enemies. I see he attempts to do many things to put the communal affairs situation into shape,” she said during the press conference held in the counseling office of the regional “A Just Russia” party branch on Thursday, April 21.
She added that “this whole chaos took years to emerge” and therefore solving all the problems at once would not be an easy task.
Lyudmila Kolomytseva stressed that she seeks to help the regular people as a civil activist and a journalist.
“He himself [the Penza region governor] wants to build order, but I think that not everyone in his retinue wants that,” she suggested.
During the press conference, Lyudmila Kolomytseva several times brought attention to the notion that officials from the regional government were involved in taking her program off the air, and hinted that the TV channel “Express” could have been influenced through a threat of losing state contracts if it were to continue cooperation with her.
However, Lyudmila Kolomytseva provided no proof or arguments to back her allegations.
