High fuel prices have forced local MP Vyacheslav Puchkovsky to ditch his old banger and use his dependable steed “Rocket” to get about town, as shown in footage shot on June 1 in Russia’s Kamchatka Region. The member of the local legislative assembly has even written a letter requesting a place to “park” his horse next to the “governor’s Lexus or Mercedes.” “We looked up the Traffic Laws and... Еще no laws are broken. If one can ride a bike or roller-skates why is not allowed to ride a horse? Yes, it might nibble our governor’s lawns but that is his problem. He should think about it then,” Vyacheslav said. “By doing this I would like to show what situation we have returned to with these prices. I am a member of the legislative assembly who will be riding a horse for everyone to understand what we will face in the future,” he said. Vyacheslav and Rocket are still waiting for a reply to his letter.
