Saratov region: MIA Main Department head to become senator
News of the Russian MIA Saratov Region Main Department Head to represent the region in the Russian Federation Council was announced during the inauguration of new Governor Valery Radaev on September 21.
Police Colonel General Sergey Arenin is going to represent the Saratov Region in the Federation Council, according to Kommersant. He has been the head of the MIA Main Directorate in the Saratov region since 2008.
It was announced during Valery Radaev’s inaugural address on Thursday. Radaev had been the acting governor of the Saratov region for half a year. He announced the new official governor during the address. He won 74.62% of the votes on the September 10 elections, according to the local election committee.
Radaev had already said the police general could be appointed to represent the region in the Federation Council. He said it when registering as a candidate in July of 2017. He also mentioned Schnittke Music and Aesthetic Lyceum (Engels) Director Yulia Ermakova and Balakovo Hospital No. 2 CMO Sergey Shestakov as possible choices. However, observers believed Arenin was the most likely to get the job even then.
Sergey Arenin was the Russian MIA Tyva Republic Department Head between 2002 and 2005, according to his official autobiography. He was then appointed the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania Minister of Internal Affairs. He had worked as the Russian MIA North Caucasus Department Civil Order Protection Division Head and Russian MIA Chechen Republic Internal Affairs Department Head between 1999 and 2002.
Major General Nikolay Trifonov
Meanwhile, Vzglyad-Info has already made a suggestion as to who may replace Arenin as the head of the MIA Main Directorate in the Saratov region, namely, Major General Nikolay Trifonov. Trifonov is the head of the MIA Main Directorate in the Yaroslavl region. However, the information has yet to be officially confirmed.
