Russian authorities sue Isinbayeva, who fled to Spain, demanding $300 refund
Legendary pole vaulter Elena Isinbayeva has become the subject of a lawsuit in her native Volgograd. The regional government has filed a lawsuit against the two-time Olympic champion because she owes the authorities 27,400 rubles (US$300).
Telegram channel Baza informs about it with reference to its own sources. According to the data, the case to Isinbayeva, who in the spring of last year fled to Spain, was issued because of two parking spaces of 40 square meters. They belong to the athlete herself, but the land on which the parking lot is built is owned by the municipality of Volgograd.
Owners of parking spaces are obliged to sign an agreement with the authorities and pay rent. However, Isinbayeva did not sign the necessary documents. As a result, she has a debt of 27400 rubles. The authorities intend to recover this amount from the former athlete through the court.
It should be noted that with regard to Isinbayeva in Russia, a real harassment has unfolded. She is demanded to "work off everything" that "her motherland gave her" after she renounced the army of the Russian Federation. She called the officer rank of the Armed Forces nominal.
At the same time, the former track and field athlete herself lies about the fact that she had nothing to do with any political movement. She is a member of the Putin Team, is the face of the ruling United Russia party and was part of the working group to amend the Russian constitution to nullify the terms of dictator Vladimir Putin.
Earlier it became known that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) did not exclude Isinbayeva from its membership, despite her service in the army of the Russian Federation and support for dictator Vladimir Putin. In turn, the team of politician Alexei Navalny published a photo of Yelena in Spain against the background of the Ukrainian flag and an investigation into the Olympic champion's real estate in Europe.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov became a laughingstock in the network after he urged not to criticize Elena Isinbayeva.
