Acting Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Mikhail Degtyarev said that the protesters in the region misinterpret the Constitution, calling themselves power. According to him, the people are only its source.

“You are not the government, the government is in the White House, in the city hall, in administrations. This is the power chosen by the source of power, that is, by the people, ”Mikhail Degtyarev said in an interview on the local 6TV channel.

According to him, the inhabitants of the region are voters who give power to the elected leader. The acting governor noted that he was not really elected, but he was appointed by the president, who was also elected by the people.

Degtyarev called the protesters bawlers and said that he often discusses the topic of power with them, but they do not understand the difference.

Residents of the Khabarovsk Territory have been attending rallies since July. Every day, protests are held in the regional capital. The most massive actions take place on Saturdays. People are told that they are the authorities in the region and in the country, they demand the return of the arrested Governor Sergei Furgal. They advise Mikhail Degtyarev to return home.
