“A case on an administrative offense under Article 20.21 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation against a 54-year-old resident of the Moscow Region was instituted by officers of the MIA of Russia Linear Division at the Pulkovo Airport,” said the official representative of the Russian MIA Irina Volk.
Transport policemen, who ensure the protection of public order and the safety of citizens at the Pulkovo Airport, received a message from an airport dispatcher saying that there was a drunken passenger on board the aircraft flying from St. Petersburg to Moscow. The crew captain decided to remove her from the flight.
A police crew arrived at the scene and found that the woman had signs of intoxication and was poorly oriented in the environment, which could cause harm to herself and those around her.
The offender was taken to the MIA of Russia Linear Division at the Pulkovo Airport. An administrative protocol has been drawn up.
