On August 10, during an operational meeting in the government of the Penza region, acting governor Ivan Belozertsev instructed the head of the regional Ministry of Construction Alexander Grishaev to identify and analyze the reasons for non-payment of salaries to workers engaged in the construction of the perinatal center. The same day, the Omsk region worker involved in the construction of perinatal center, threatened to burn himself in the building of the Penza prosecutor's office due to the salary non-payment.
On August 12, the prosecutor's office of the Penza region informed that salary arrears had been paid out to the Omsk region worker.
