A citizen of Uzbekistan filed a complaint to Alexander Shishlov, a human rights Ombudsman in St. Petersburg, against an employee of the Viborg district Center for State and Municipal Services.
Reportedly, the employee of the municipal service center refused to serve him because of his ethnicity, Abnews writes.
“Inspector S. ignorantly refused to register the application for a trumped-up reason and rudely threw my passport and documents,” the message to the ombudsman reads.
As the citizen of Uzbekistan added, he had to wait for another inspector to serve him. After checking the correctness of documents, the employee completed his work.
Alexander Shishlov studied the accuracy of the information contained in the appeal. According to the St. Petersburg Ombudsman’s website, following an investigation, the employee of the Center was found guilty of misbehaving and was disciplined.
