On April 21, a resident of the republic, Alena Fedorova, collected 145 signatures against the increased air fares on the square in Yakutsk. According to her, there would have been more signatories if the police had not asked her to leave the square.

As the SakhaDay, a resident of Yakutia plans to send a letter to the head of the republican OFAS with a request to sort out the fares for flights. As Alena Fedorova notes in her letter, fares for flights from Yakutsk have grown sharply to all cities in Russia. For example, a family of four had to get to Sochi on April 21, 271,6 thousand rubles, excluding luggage. In 2020, the same path cost the family 87 thousand rubles.

Earlier it became known that Yakutsk was not included in the program of subsidized air tickets this year... As the activists note in a letter to the OFAS, because of this, the majority of residents were deprived of the opportunity to fly out of the region, which means that their constitutional right to movement is violated. The collection of signatures is scheduled to be completed on Friday.
