MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Former Russian minister for the Far East development and presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishayev was appointed a vice-president of Russia’s state-run oil company Rosneft, the company said in its statement on Wednesday.
“The Far East is one of the main regions for the company’s activity,” the statement read. “Rosneft’s production activities from geological surveying and development to refining and marketing are concentrated there. Viktor Ishayev’s appointment to this position will help successful development of Rosneft’s projects in the region.”
Viktor Ishayev served as governor of the Khabarovsk Territory in 1991-2009. In April 2009 he was appointed Russia’s presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District and in May 2012 he became head of the newly created Ministry for the Far East Development.
President Vladimir Putin said during his trip to the Far East last August that Ishayev’s resignation was “planned” and “had no connection to the current problems.”
