Sergei Doroshchuk resigned from the post of mayor of Uglegorsk. He made this decision after talking with the Governor of the Sakhalin Region.

Communicating with the residents of Uglegorsk in the presence of Sakhalin journalists, Valery Limarenko gave a harsh assessment of the actions of the mayor after a man-made accident that caused an environmental disaster - rock descending into the Yellow River. He noted that if from the technical point of view everything was done as it should to eliminate the consequences, then the work with the population is being conducted "very badly." “I expressed my critical remarks today to Sergey Vasilyevich Doroshchuk. Based on the results of our conversation, Sergei Vasilyevich made a decision for himself to resign, ”said Valery Limarenko.

The governor arrived in Uglegorsk on a working visit, together with public figures he visited the mudflow site and inspected the treatment facilities.

Today, the Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Sakhalin Region appointed an inspection of the actions of the head of Uglegorsk on the facts of obstruction of the legitimate professional activities of journalists of the newspaper "Uglegorskie Novosti", which were expressed in the dismissal of Zinaida Makarova, the head of the MAU "Publishing House" in Uglegorsk, and cut off the electricity from the editorial office. These events took place on the day when the newspaper intended to publish an article about the environmental disaster caused by the activities of Solntsevsky Coal Mine LLC, which is an asset of the Eastern Mining Company.
