Head of Ministry of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov may be dismissed anytime soon
The Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov may lose his post in the near future.
According to data emerging in the media, the Head of Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia may be dismissed, since his department systematically underestimates the information on forest fire areas. In addition, the following is indicated among the reasons for his probable dismissal: death of a rescue group at the Severnaya mine in the Komi Republic, Ilyushin Il-76 airlifter accident during fire-fighting operation near Irkutsk, as well as death of the Head of Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Primorye region during the recent flooding.
These and other emergencies that have occurred in Russia are a reflection of the existing systemic problems in the department as a whole. However, the responsibility for solving the existing problems rests with the Head of the Ministry.
It should be noted that the possible forthcoming resignation of the Head of Ministry of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov is not the first high-profile reshuffle in the Cabinet of Ministers before the upcoming elections to the State Duma. The Minister of Education and Science Dmitry Livanov had been dismissed earlier.
