2018 scandal[edit]

As of 2018, Glatskikh was the director of the Department of Youth Politics of Sverdlovsk Oblast. On 5 November, she made national headlines when, speaking in Kirovgrad, she stated that the state did not ask the citizens to make children and therefore the children should not expect to receive any support from the government. The governor, Yevgeny Kuyvashyov, on the same day dismissed the statement by Glatskikh as incorrect.[3] Glatskikh was suspended from her job on the next day,[4] while the Investigative Committee of Russia began an investigation into allegations of corruption and misappropriation of approximately 131 million rubles (2.25 million dollars) in her department.[5][6][7]
