Interview

Aivars Lembergs
the mayor of Ventspils
01:02-02:09(ru) Went for a walk a few hundred sailors. Many of them were drunk, doing the natural deed, liying in his vomit, toring out beds of flowers, drinking in public places. For those who were obedient, the police composed small fines - 5-10 euros, and those who were liying, tried to get on the ships, but some of them was not able to name the ship. Due to the fact that they misbehaved in droves rather, I wrote a letter to NATO to apologize for the behavior of their sailors to Ventspils residents.
02:09-02:38(ru) Drunk sailors met at the club with drunk locals, quarreled for some woman, the security took away them from the club, and then there was a fight. One soldier badly damaged. Horrible accident.
