Acting Governor of Kursk region Roman Starovoit said in an interview with RIA Novosti, why refused personal security, the car with «flasher» and asked not to block the road for him.

Local media reported that the Starovoit is left of the ex-Governor of Kursk region Alexander Mikhailov machine with a flasher and personal protection. The acting Governor refused these privileges and asked not to block the road for him.

«First, it as the head of the Russian Federation is not supposed, I am not a protected person. The special signals on cars, I believe that the road network in Kursk, and on regional roads today is not so loaded, that there was a need to signal to accelerate movement. I don’t see a large amount of traffic and are not faced with that. About the overlapping of streets, to be honest, I never blocked, therefore I asked not to do so in the future. It was done once, when it was performance. Here was the envoy, he is a protected person under the law and, apparently, for the movement of his motorcade made some traffic restrictions in the city,» — said Starovoit.
