Penza, 29 May 2016. PenzaNews. A resident of Ust-Uza village in the Shemysheika area of the Penza region attempted to call the Russian President Vladimir Putin after the court bailiffs promised to disconnect him from the gas pipeline for not paying communal bills.

“The debtor attempted to engage in a long-lasting row on the bills that he thought to be incorrect, and then, in a nervous fit, attempted to call the Russian President to restore ‘justice.’ It is unknown what influenced him the most – the threat of gas supply disconnection or the failed call – but he decided to pay the debt several minutes later,” the official representative of the FSCB in the region Yana Zagrebelnaya told PenzaNews.
The citizen paid the debt in full, took the receipt, and politely saw the bailiffs away, she added.
“The Penza court bailiffs currently have 4,572 reclamations for a total of 800 million rubles of debt, including 80 million rubles owed by regular citizens. At the same time, legal entities owe enormous money to power suppliers, for a total of more than 720 million rubles,” she clarified.
