MOSCOW, 11 Mar – RIA Novosti. An obscene statement by the Minister of Culture of Crimea Arina Novoselskaya is unacceptable, but she should not be fired because of this: she works well, believes Elena Drapeko, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Culture.
Earlier, the head of Crimea, Sergei Aksenov, ordered an official investigation into Novoselskaya for an obscene remark during a video selector.
“Firstly, I think that she is, of course, wrong. She should have apologized to everyone present, but she should not be fired. She is a good minister, she works well, I know her. But we, of course, whom The participants of the meeting can withdraw anything they like, given that there are so many problems in Crimea that are very difficult to solve. I understand her, but I do not approve of the act, “Drapeko told RIA Novosti.
At a meeting in Crimea, which was held on Thursday and was devoted to the implementation of infrastructure projects, there was an unplanned inclusion of Novoselskaya, which swore obscenely, indignant at video communication failures. After the head of Crimea, Sergei Aksenov, urged her to calm down and asked to conduct an internal investigation, the minister apologized, saying, “colleagues, forgive me, please,” and said that her car had “turned off.”
