MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Minister of Agriculture Alexander Chernogorov has been relieved of his duties. The press service of the RF government reported that the relevant executive order was signed on Thursday by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
“These are strict but fair measures. Chernogorov, unfortunately, has failed to establish himself as an effective manager. There have been serious and well-founded complaints about the quality of his management. In particular, he failed to ensure proper coordination of activities of the divisions of the Ministry of Agriculture and other federal bodies of executive authority he supervised in the fulfillment of critical state tasks,” the Cabinet press service said.
“The fulfillment of important assignments of the president and prime minister was unacceptably delayed, which led to a number of negative consequences,” the Cabinet noted, recalling that Chernogorov held the position of deputy agriculture minister since February 14, 2009.
