Governor of Ryazan Region has resigned
Previously, three governors have resigned.
Governor of Ryazan Region Oleg Kovalev filed an early resignation to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"In the Ryazan region I worked for almost nine years. In September, the region will hold elections of the Governor... I had resolved not to run for a new term," TASS quotes Mr. Kovalev's words told at the meeting of the regional Government.
Previously, three governors have resigned: heads of the Novgorod, Buryatia and Perm regions - Sergey Mitin, Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn and Viktor Basargin. It is expected that Governor of Karelia Alexander Khudilainen will leave the post too.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
