In the near future in resignation can leave a few of the heads of regions. According to sources, “b”, among the potential retirees governors of Ulyanovsk and Belgorod region Sergey Morozov and Yevgeny Savchenko. The first manages the region’s 14 years old, the second 24 years, with the term of office of the two is far from over: 2021 and 2022, respectively. Political analyst Rostislav Turovsky said “Kommersant” that the situation in Belgorod and Ulyanovsk regions differ dramatically.

Sergey Morozov is one of the old-timers of the governors who participated in the elections until their cancellation in 2005 and after returning in 2012. He leads Ulyanovsk oblast since 2004, when he first won the election. Prior to that, Mr. Morozov held a post of the mayor of Dimitrovgrad. In 2006 and 2011 by Sergey Morozov, the President was reappointed to the Governor’s office in 2016 he won the election, gaining 54% of the votes (authority expires in 2021).

Elections to the legislative Assembly on 9 September according to party lists, won the Communist party, which scored 36,24% of the vote. United Russia, whose list was headed by Sergey Morozov, scored 33,96%. Kommersant’s source says about the possible resignation of mister Morozova “talks underway for several months, but the situation remains the same because of the support of the Governor to the Federal center.”

Mr. frost is known for exotic initiatives: he declared the region the birthplace of Kolobok, the region established the “Day of conception” in which reduced working hours. In the ranking of Fund “the Petersburg policy” Ulyanovsk region is assigned to regions with low resistance. According to “Kommersant”, the post of Governor of the Ulyanovsk region can take the head of the Federal medical-biological Agency (FMBA) Vladimir Uiba. As reported by “Kommersant” a source close to the leadership of the Ulyanovsk region, the change of Governor in the region are waiting for “the next several months,” Mr. Uiba is one of the most likely candidates for this post. At the same time, as noted by another source, Vladimir Uiby the Governor’s office can become a “one way ticket”: “Now it is almost parallel to the health Minister, has control of all nuclear medicine, understand what has been doing for 15 years. But if he is Governor, it will be a sphere of activity in which he is not very versed, and I would call this development a demotion. It is hard to believe in its success: the Ulyanovsk region — the region is very severe, “red.” Further Uiba, perhaps, that can perhaps retire”.

Mr. Uiba responsible for the construction of the “Federal high-tech center of medical radiology in Dimitrovgrad”. In the administration of the Ulyanovsk Governor, “Kommersant” reported that Mr Uiba arrives today in the region and “will discuss the progress of completion” Sergei Morozov. It is expected that the opening of the center should come Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, but the visit date is unknown. Source “Kommersant” reported that the company “is actively preparing for the arrival of distinguished guests, almost grass do not paint”.

The press service of the Federal medical and biological Agency, said that Vladimir Uiba was unavailable for comment, “as flies to Dimitrovgrad at the weekly meeting”. The accounts chamber of the Russian Federation on 2 November announced its claim to the construction of the center of radiology (for project construction between the FMBA and the company had signed five contracts for a total amount of more than RUB 20 billion). The auditors said that the revealed violations in the construction and construction supervision. Vladimir Uiba on the Board of the joint venture promised that the centre will be commissioned before the end of 2018, noting that patients will enter treatment only once will be completed the licensing center.

The first Secretary of the Ulyanovsk regional Committee of the Communist party, state Duma Deputy Alexey Chicken-said “Kommersant” that “the position of the Governor is reeling, no one hides, talking about it, and the results of the last election.” “But I don’t believe that the administration may be the successor, not the scale and not the field of activity”, — said the Communist. “I first heard about it, know nothing about it. But I think that statements about the unsustainability of the Governor there is no reason”, — said “Kommersant” the head of regional Executive Committee “an United Russia” Konstantin Dolgov.

In the Belgorod region actively discussed the possibility of withdrawal of the ruling the region with the 1993 Governor Yevgeny Savchenko “in December”. In September 2017 following a robust election (62.3 per cent) for another term, Mr. Savchenko met with Vladimir Putin and told him that goes to the “five-year finish line” that is on his last term. In charge of the political bloc of Vice-Governor Olga Pavlova has told “Kommersant” that “does not respond to such nonsense”, as rumors of early resignation of the head region. “There are no prerequisites for this no. Two days ago the Belgorod region took the first place in the country according to the maturity level of project management. A day earlier she was named the best in Russia according to the quality of work of the Executive. Estimated in this work at the Federal level, I don’t really understand on what basis are these rumors,” — said Ms. Pavlova.

Political analyst Rostislav Turovsky said “Kommersant” that the situation in Belgorod and Ulyanovsk regions differ dramatically. “In the Ulyanovsk region the protests went out of control government, the elections to the legislative Assembly of the Communist party. Replacement (of the head region.— “B”) is possible in the context of preparations for the Duma elections of 2021,” he says. In the Belgorod region, according to Mr Turovsky, a possible “planned replacement age” (Yevgeny Savchenko 68 years). “But it must be well planned, should not harm the socio-political stability, which is, when Yevgeniya Savchenko”, — said “Kommersant” expert.
