According to a source in the government, refusing to name the potential customer in public.

Experts estimate that the situation is ambiguous.

Head of Political expert group Konstantin Kalachev believes that this is the first serious attempt to shake the position Sheveleva.

- Of course, that in itself does not lead the collection of signatures for the resignation, but drop the stone wears away. What Shevelev became unpopular fact. Moreover, the region has already nostalgia for Dmitry Zelenin, who also became his own, but at least he was not the Ryazan. Appointment of Ryazan, Tver initially offended the local elite, and serious progress is not for the better, & mdash; notes Kalachev.

The head of the Agency for Political and Economic Communications Dmitry Orlov, on the contrary, believes that the situation in the Tver region hard, but not critical.

- The presence of "People's Alliance" among the collection of signatures of the organizers says that moves into retirement will not go away. If the system will respond to such treatment, it will be interpreted as an action taken by a pressure - Eagles notes.
