A boozer tractor driver in Poganovka suffers most from special security requirements
Moscow, May 8, Interfax - In the village of Nikolskoye, the Penza region, where a group of exiles is waiting for the Doomsday in a dugout, the local population prepares a revolt at special security requirements and inrush of journalists.
"Another journalist! So many of our people had their driving licenses pulled, and you are to blame for that. You are the ones who made the whole fuss," complains a tractor driver Mikhail Nikitashov talking to news reporters.
Now he has to diverge from his usual route to his field, because the village center is guarded by the road police, and Mikhail is "stiff" from the early morning, writes the Trud daily.
Alexander Bakanov has another problem: he needs to take grass from the meadows, and he has only a home-made trailer to his car. If the traffic police stop him, he will have to pay a penalty.
Besides, the earth road to the dugout is damaged by the vehicles of emergency forces, ambulance, police, federal security forces, and regional authorities, reports the newspaper.
Maria Alaykina, who worked as a milkmaid at the local state farm for all her life, complains that her pension amounts to 2950 rubles, and her application for a higher pension of a veteran of work was refused.
"And those in the dugout get bagfuls of food from the district head Vladimir Provotorov. They get a cow whenever they want. They needed milk, you see. None of them grows vegetables or crops potatoes. They just sit there in their dugout. Loafers! I work so hard, I could hardly walk by the evening. My granddaughters used to come to see me from another end of the village for the whole winter, because they were afraid of the sect members. Nobody lets children go out," says Maria.
