The advisor to the vice-governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory called the residents of Krasnoyarsk “a aching heap of shit” and “a whiny rabble” – because of complaints about smoke from forest fires

Advisor to the head of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Governor’s Administration Andrei Agafonov wrote an insulting post on Facebook about Krasnoyarsk residents who complained about smoke from wildfires. Attention to Agafonov’s post was drawn by the Borus telegram channel, which published a screenshot of the message.

The adviser to the head of the region criticized people who left negative comments on the Instagram of the Olympic figure skating champion Alexei Yagudin, who, during a visit to Krasnoyarsk, published a photo of the city with the words “I love Krasnoyarsk”. Yagudin was criticized for not having noticed the smog from forest fires (Yagudin admitted that he had “done something stupid”).

Here is what Andrei Agafonov wrote:

I read the comments on Yagudin’s instagram, and I felt a little ashamed that I was also from Krasnoyarsk. How did people get into this, this aching bunch of shit? And how do they live constantly with this feeling of eternal oppression? Such a person wakes up in the morning and thinks – damn it, I haven’t choked yet! We must take a little breath! Separate compliments to the fighters of the invisible front, who brought up a whole generation of hysterics “in the black sky mode “. These are not residents of Siberia, they are not Russians at all, they are some kind of whiny rabble.

Agafonov himself denies that in his entry he spoke about the inhabitants of Krasnoyarsk. In an interview with the correspondent of the Mash branch in Krasnoyarsk, he  said : “No, no, no, it is not Krasnoyarsk residents who have turned into a aching pile of shit, but the people who write this [in Yagudin’s comments] are a really aching heap of shit … All Krasnoyarsk residents do not whine , all Krasnoyarsk residents live an ordinary, normal life.I don’t know, it’s difficult for me to talk to you, you, it seems to me, are somehow not very intellectually developed.“.

On the morning of August 12, Andrey Agafonov’s post disappeared from Facebook, about 18 hours after publication. Judging by the  screenshot from, the post was not very popular: it received 40 reactions and 34 comments.

Agafonov told NGS24.RU that he did not delete the post – this was done by the Facebook administration, which considered that the post was contrary to community norms. “And I have been banned for a month,” he added.

Smoke from forest fires in Yakutia and the Angara region covered more than 1,700 settlements in the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Irkutsk Region, writes “”. Residents of Krasnoyarsk began to complain about the smoke on August 7, which is why Rospotrebnadzor recommended that  they stay on the street less.
