MOSCOW, September 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has appointed Alexander Galushka Russian Minister for Far East Development, the Kremlin press service reports.
Galushlka replaces Viktor Ishayev, who was Far East development minister and presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.
Galushka was co-chairman of the central staff of the All-Russian People's Front.
The Far East region has been struck with massive floods, which affected over 100,000 people and incurred damages of over 90 million rubles to the energy infrastructure alone.
The floods are not over as the water level on Amur River near Komsomolsk-on-Amur exceeded nine meters earlier this week.
