“But in the face it hurts”: the mayor of Orenburg told how he hates the perpetrators of anonymous Telegram channels

Sergei Salmin thinks that a whole generation has grown up that cannot answer for his words.

A rather aggressive statement was made by the mayor of Orenburg, Sergei Salmin. The manager, in an interview with a local TV channel, suddenly decided to tell about his attitude to anonymous Telegram channels. According to him, their authors are afraid and do not show themselves, and in general they belong to a new generation which does not know how to answer for their words.

Sergey Salmin noted that he does not read anonymous Telegram channels, in which political insiders are often published. The mayor considers such publications to be psychological attacks against him.

Also, the head of the city decided to talk about his attitude to modern social networks. He believes that with the advent of Telegram, many people have appeared there who hide behind anonymous channels.

The mayor of Orenburg complained that none of the authors of the Telegram channels “came to stand before me like that and said something like that.”

The official added that he could react “like a husband, like a father, like an athlete”. The Baza edition recalls that in the 1990s Sergey Salmin was actively involved and taught sambo.
