The former official will be engaged in the development of the railway network in the east of Russia.

The former Head of Khakassia, Viktor Zimin, will take the post of the deputy general director of Russian Railways. This decision was made by the board of directors. Zimin will develop the Eastern Polygon. It is reported by Interfax citing a source close to Russian Railways.

“I will do what I did before and what I always dreamed of - developing Transsib, overseeing the construction of the Kuragino-Kyzyl railway (to the coal fields of Tuva),” said Zimin in October 2018, when he accepted the offer to become the deputy head of Russian Railways.

Viktor Zimin led Khakassia from 2009 to 2018. In the last election in September, Zimin was replaced by Communist Party spokesman Valentin Konovalov.
