Mihail Puchkovsky and his horse
Puchkovsky’s colleagues didn’t support his idea. They clubbed together and present a monthly bus card to Mihail. «It’s dangerous to ride on a horse in the city: dangerous for you, for people and for horse», – the «United Russia» party deputy Anatoliy Kurnosenko said.
Puchkovsky haven’t received bus card and called his colleagues «retarded». «You’d better give a bus card for every pensioner of our region – it is 96000 citizens! Their reaction suggests that they haven’t understood my message. But it’s ok, sometimes they doesn’t understand even multiplication table», – said Mihail.
