Nizhny Tagil Mayor to replace Aman Tuleev?
Sergey Nosov has already begun to get acquainted with the Kemerovo administration.
Mayor of Nizhny Tagil Sergey Nosov, who, according to insiders, may become the successor of Kemerovo region Governor Aman Tuleev, arrived in the capital of the region to get acquainted with the administration. This is reported by the Taiga.Info edition referring to sources in the power structures of the region.
"He requests economic and political information on the region. He is represented as approved by the Kremlin," the source said.
The publication reports that soon Nosov will be submitted to the Council of People's Deputies of the Kemerovo region, which last day of the session was postponed from 5 to 12 July specially for the sake of this case. The edition says that "none of the local politicians the Kremlin has arranged."
Tuleev, who was urgently transported to Moscow for treatment, will "be persuaded to resign after being in power in the region for 20 years," the portal writes.
It is assumed that Nosov could take Tuleev's place this fall. Before that, he will "again defeat" the election of the Mayor of Nizhny Tagil and initiate the cancellation of the Mayor's election in the city in favor of the appointment of city managers, the source asserts.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, 73-year-old Governor of the Kemerovo region Aman Tuleev undergoes a rehabilitation course in Moscow after a spinal surgery, where he was taken by personal initiative of Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova.
According to the Kommersant newspaper, last Saturday, July 1, Tuleev was carried on a stretcher to an airfield in Kemerovo, after which they were taken to Moscow by a special plane.
From May 22, Aman Tuleev is on vacation. Initially, it was assumed that the Governor would temporarily resign from his duties for ten days, but subsequently the duration of leave was extended. Later it became known that the Head of the region suffered a spinal surgery in May, which was carried out at a clinic in Germany. According to Valery Tsoi, the region's Deputy Governor on Health Issues, the operation was "complicated and specific with the use of metal structures", for a total of nine hours. After the operation, Tuleev had complications in the form of pneumonia, but the doctors coped with it.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
