Head of Karelia Alexander Khudilainen announced his decision to resign early.
"I appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin about early resignation as the Head of the Republic of Karelia. You know that today work for staff rotation at the regional and federal level takes place, and that's deliberate, balanced decision not to join the polls, to which 207 days remains," TASS quotes Khudilainen.
As Kommersant previously reported, as a candidate to replace Khudilainen local media called Head of the Federal Bailiff Service Artur Parfenchikov. "His candidacy fits into the scheme, which is already being implemented: a person from the region, and at the same time long gone. Parfenchikov was a prosecutor of Petrozavodsk in early 00's, so, he is not a stranger," said Vice-President of the Center for Political Technologies Alexey Makarkin.
Recall, last week, Head of Buryatia Vyacheslav Nagovitsyn and Governor of the Perm region Viktor Basargin resigned. Instead of first there was appointed Alexey Tsydenov, the Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, instead of a second - Maxim Reshetnikov, who worked in the Moscow Government as the Head of the Economic Policy Department. On February 13, Novgorod Region Governor Sergey Mitin announced the resignation, adding that he does not intend to participate in the 2017 election campaign.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
