Khabarovsk Governor Vyacheslav Shport introduced a new Minister in charge of Far East Hectare land today at an operational meeting, according to Kommersant with a source in the Government. The position of a ‘hectare Minister’ is a new one in the local Government. Natalia Yakutina, who served as the Khabarovsk regional Minister of Culture since March 2015, has taken the post. Kommersant could not obtain any information regarding the date of her appointment or the new Minister’s functions yet.
Yakutina began her career in late 1990s in the Vyazma district. The newly appointed minister for Far East Hectare has climbed up the career ladder starting from the post of the Deputy Head of the District Executive Committee’s Department of Culture and moving further to become head of the municipal district. It is still unknown as to who will succeed her as the Minister of Culture, by the way.
