The current governor of the Leningrad region, Alexander Drozdenko, said that the elections for the head of the region were absolutely honest and open, reports TASS.
“I want to say that the campaign was absolutely honest and open, I am grateful to my rivals, because everyone led their own campaign and at the same time tried not to promote in a good or bad direction at the expense of the rival, but simply to promote their ideas, thoughts, and their software product” - he noted.
