Сегодня в Ставрополе произошел возмутительный, вопиющий инцидент - человек с ножом напал на сотрудников редакции газеты “Родина”, ранения получили четверо. Это уголовное преступление. Сейчас нападавший задержан, полиция проводит все необходимые действия. Уверен, что правоохранители оперативно разберутся во всех мотивах и обстоятельствах, а правосудие -  определит наказание. Хочу успокоить родных и близких пострадавших сотрудников газеты. Угрозы жизни нет, с ними работают медики. Будет оказана вся необходимая помощь. Двое уже отпущены домой, еще по двоим решается вопрос о госпитализации. Министр здравоохранения края докладывает мне ежечасно. Держу ситуацию на личном контроле. #ставропольскийкрай #владимирвладимиров
