Rossel re-appointed as Sverdlovsk governor's representative

Eduard Rossel, the former governor of the Sverdlovsk Region, has been re-appointed as a member of Russia's Soviet of the Federation within the Federal Assembly.

Current Sverdlovsk Governor Evgeny Kuivashev signed Decree 403-UG on Saturday appointing Rossel to be Kuivashev's representative. The decree went into effect upon its signature, Ural Business Consulting reports.

In December 2009, Rossel became senator and was a Soviet of the Federation member for the budget and financial markets. After the new governor for the region was appointed, Rossel resigned to comply with existing regulations.

Rossel was born to a working class family in October 1937 in the village of Bor Bor in the Gorky district. He attended the Sverdlovsk Mining Institute as a mining engineer between September 1957 and June 1962. He moved up in the ranks of multiple construction firms until becoming head of the Tagiltyazhstroy plant in 1977, after which he received several other construction management positions. In April 1990, Rossel was elected chairman of the Sverdlovsk Oblast Executive Committee. In October 1991, he was appointed head of the administration of the Sverdlovsk region, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Rossel has received multiple awards, including a certificate of merit of the Sverdlovsk legislative assembly, multiple degrees for contributing to the strengthening of Russian statehood and honorary citizenship in the city of Yekaterinburg.
