Putin dismissed Governor of Primorye region
Vladimir Miklushevsky was dismissed at his own request, the media reported.

According to the official portal the Governor's resignation was a foregone conclusion due to a conflict with the security forces and the loss of federal patrons – Summa group of Ziyavudin Magomedov and businessmen Kovalchuk.
In turn, one of representatives of the business community of Primorye added that Miklushevsky clashed with Presidential Envoy in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev, who also contributed to the dismissal of the Governor, as well as the fact that he was not able to consolidate the local elites. "All: senators, local deputies and members of the government were, if not opposed him, but not with him for sure. In fact, he did not even have his own team here," the interlocutor said.
Miklushevsky's resignation did not become a surprise - political analysts predicted his departure on the eve of the rotation of the heads of regions. For example, he was included in the list of "governors for the flight", compiled by Minchenko Consulting on September 29.
