The authorities disowned the billboard.
In Russia, according to the old tradition, they continue to boast of “world leadership” in various industries. In one of the cities there was even a billboard with the inscription “Russia is the world leader in gas production.”
Astra writes about this. And everything would be fine, but Bratsk, Irkutsk region, where the shield is installed, has almost no gas supply. It is noteworthy that the population there exceeds 250 thousand.
“Residents of the city complained on social networks that Bratsk has practically no gas supply, and the thermal power plant itself, where the billboard is located, is heated by coal,” the message says.
In response to the dissatisfaction, the authorities disowned the banner: they say that it was installed by a “private owner.” They also promised that they would implement various gasification projects until 2026.
