Chita resident goes on hunger strike for direct mayoral election
An activist from Chita, Nikolai Likhanov, went on a hunger strike. He demands the return of direct mayoral elections, which have been canceled in the city since 2014 of the year.
As reported local media, the man intends to starve near the government building of the Trans-Baikal Territory every day, starting from 10 in the morning.
