Pogorelov called Ratushniak's words a mistake that is not a reason to deprive him of the title
The statement by the former Mayor of Uzhgorod Serhiy Ratushniak on the inferiority of certain nationalities and the non-admission of foreign students to the territory of the pool, according to the present Mayor Victor Pogorelov, was just a mistake.
He told that yesterday, June 18, during the briefing. Also, he said that currently, the City Hall would not initiate the procedure to deprive Serhiy Ratushniak of the title of "Honorary citizen of the city."
"Personally, if it were my property, I would not have done it," - Victor Pogorelov said.
He added: "I have not read his statements, but I was told about it. I'm shocked. He should not have said that aloud. But everyone has an opinion. And this is his personal opinion. But to deprive him of the title... We award this title under the decision of the City Council, and I don't think that some mistakes of an honorary citizen are a reason to do it now. Because I think he just made a mistake. By expressing his opinion in haste. I would have waited a little. It is his right, it's his property."
