Krasnodar, August 12 – Yug Times. The wave of farmers’ discontent that caught the region half a year ago is gradually waning away. A regular conference devoted to the ‘farmers’ issue’ was held at the regional Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday, August 3. It was presided by Andrei Kikot, Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, who was receving Kuban farmers together with Governor Veniamin Kondratiev.
Twelve farmers from different parts of the region, including several participants of the notorious ‘tractor march’, came to see the high-rank officials.
Opening the conference, Mr. Kikot noted that it was the second meeting devoted to the farmers’ problems. The problematic issues raised in 35 complaints of the farmers from Kavkazsky, Kanevsky, Kalininsky and Kushchevsky rayons during the first meeting had reportedly been successfully resolved. The topics of those complaints were land use, illegal land withdrawal, and unsubstantiated criminal persecution.
Mr. Kikot stated that the farmers sometimes unjustly want all their problems resolved only as they see it, while the legal way to resolve them may be different from that.
“Don’t live to the principle ‘as I want it’,” advised Prosecutor. “In the Krasnodar region, a lot of variants have been created to settle the farmers’ problems.”
