The minister reacted with humor to the attack.
Unknown on Monday, September 14, threw an egg at the Minister of Culture and Information Policy Alexander Tkachenko before his reporting press conference on the results of 100 days of work in office.
A young man in a baseball cap was waiting for Tkachenko at the entrance to the building and threw an egg at the minister from a short distance. After that, he left the scene – while not running, but simply walking quickly. No one followed him.
The accompanying minister, to whom the egg hit right in the ear with a loud crack, asked if he was all right. Drying himself with a napkin, Tkachenko went to the press conference.
“Entering here (for a press conference – ed.), They gave me an egg in my ear. This is one example of how the culture of dialogue is developing in our country, ”the minister said addressing those present.
