Sverdlovsk regional governor outlines fates of discharged ministers
Sergei Fedorov, Sverdlovsk's construction minister, and Alexei Badev, the region's culture minister, will finish their terms in office at the end of 2012. The media took notice when Kuyvashev began to make major changes in his regional cabinet, and especially his decision to not renew Fedorov and Badev's contracts for another two years. No official complaints have ever been filed against Fedorov or Badev, Mir66 reports.
In a statement to reporters, Kuyvashev said that his construction and cultural ministers have "different vision[s] of the industries run by them". The governor added that the two government officials are "not going anywhere", and that they will be assigned to posts that are equally important, according to Mir66.
Kuyvashev did not comment on the futures of ministers Ilya Bondarev, Dmitry Nozhenko, Leonid Rapoport and Nikolai Smirnov.
