Yekaterinburg residents rally to demand city administration head's resignation
Protesters have demanded Yakob's resignation and the prevention of a growth in tariffs, as well as the abolishment of free travel for veterans, the disabled and other beneficiaries on public transportation, Oblastnaya Gazeta reports.
The city has seen a 16 percent increase in complaints about the mayor over the last year, compared with 2012.
Citizens have voiced concern that administrators are reluctant to find solutions to the city's problems, including the resettlement of old and dilapidated housing and the improvement of living conditions, according to Oblastnaya Gazeta.
Yekaterinburg Duma Deputy Alexander Kosintsev said officials recently asked the city to present a report on the costs of transport enterprises in the city, but he alleged that the administration has not been compliant in providing the information.
