Putin dismisses governor of St. Petersburg
The President offered Georgy Poltavchenko to head the board of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (OSK).
Vladimir Putin replaced the head of St. Petersburg by proposing Georgy Poltavchenko to become the head of the board of directors of the Obyedinennaya Sudostroitelnaya Kompaniya (United Shipbuilding Corporation). As follows from a presidential decree, the presidential plenipotentiary in the Northwestern Federal District, Alexander Beglov, will manage the northern capital from now on.
As stated in the document, Poltavchenko left on his own volition. “With God's help,” he told Fontanka. And then he stated that he was going to continue “to work for the good of the Fatherland.”
Poltavchenko held the post of St. Petersburg governor since August 2011.
