In the April rating of influence, the heads of Bashkiria Radiy Khabirov, the Krasnoyarsk Territory Alexander Uss, the Lipetsk and Novosibirsk regions Igor Artamonov and Andrey Travnikov lost their positions the most. This is stated in the APEC study, which is available to Izvestia.
The top governors with the strongest influence, according to the authors, were headed by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin, head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov and governor of the Tula region Alexei Dyumin. In April, the head of Tatarstan Rustama Minnikhanov strengthened his influence by two positions (he moved up from 6th to 4th place). As the head of APEC, Dmitry Orlov, explained to Izvestia, this happened thanks to the official’s visit to Turkmenistan, where the president of the republic, Serdar Berdimuhamedov, met with him.
The governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Alexander Uss leaves the group with a very strong influence (from 17th to 26th place). As Dmitry Orlov, the head of APEC, explained to Izvestia, the reason for this was the aggravation of environmental problems, as well as serious natural fires.
Governor of the Novosibirsk region Andrey Travnikov (from 26th to 31st place), the head of Karachay-Cherkessia Rashid Temrezov (from 40th to 45th), the head of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvozhaev (from 44th to 49th) lose five positions in the ranking.
