The farewell ceremony for the eight dead fighters of the Wagner PMC took place at the cemetery of the municipality of Goryachiy Klyuch. Several hundred local residents gathered at the cemetery.
Although the ceremony of farewell to the dead was solemnly held, previously the city authorities had opposed it. The leader, Sergei Belopolsky, in a telephone conversation with a representative of the “musicians”, said that the governor had withdrawn his authority to solve these problems under the pretext that the inhabitants would be against the transformation of the resort into a memorial. Citizens gathered at the cemetery say they do not support the decision of Krasnodar Territory Governor Veniamin Kondratyev.
“My husband is there, behind the ribbon. I came here first to support. It is necessary. And the fact that someone tried to intervene, well, there are a lot of places, let them lie down,” said Antonina, a resident of Goryachiy Klyuch.
Speaking about the past, Wagner PMC founder Yevgeny Prigozhin noted that those who did not leave a will or lost contact with loved ones are buried in Goryachiy Klyuch.
However, after resonance in the media, Belopolsky tried to justify himself and published a laudatory post on social networks, in which he recognized the merits of Wagner PMC. However, the resort was not allowed to “spoil” with a memorial to the dead.
