Petition for Dmitry Medvedev's resignation gains more than 144,000 signatures

The appeal to the President of Russia with the demand of resignation of the Prime Minister, who treated the low incomes of teachers in Dagestan as the results of their personal choices, gained 144,255 signatures.

On August 2, at the National Youth Educational Forum "Territory of Sense on Klyazma", Gadji Kurbanov, a teacher of the Dagestan State University, complained to the Russian Premier about teachers’ low salaries. In response, Dmitri Medvedev said that there are other ways of earning money and offered disgruntled teachers to go into businesses.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the petition demanding the resignation of Dmitry Medvedev was created in the morning of August 4 on the website Change.org. As at 8:30 p.m. Moscow time of the same day, it gained 82,628 signatures. The author of the petition has claimed that the Cabinet of Ministers "should not be headed by the person advising the teachers to earn additional money somehow and somewhere in order to survive."

As at 9:06 a.m. Moscow time of August 5, the petition to the President of Russia with the demand of resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev gained 144,255 signatures.

It should be noted that earlier, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent has been told by Alexander Amzin, a media analyst, the development director of the "Med-Media", that signatures under a petition posted on the website "Change.org" do not guarantee a response of Russian public agencies, since the website does not apply means for verification of signatures permitted by the Russian laws.
