Interview with Aleksey Gromov

Election commission spokesperson Aleksey Gromov told RT that a record election turnout of 68% in St Petersburg is no surprise, as both Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev come from there.

“People think that they should go to the elections because Dmitry Medvedev is the man who has managed Russian national projects which did come to schools hospitals and homes -  it’s a sort of gratitude,” assumed Gromov.
