MOSCOW, October 21 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin has abolished the state commission for the social and economic development of the Far East, the Republic of Buryatia, Trans-Baikal and the Irkutsk region.
The commission was set up in 2007.
The president signed the decree on October 19 and it was made public on the legal information portal on Monday, October 21. The portal says the document will come into effect since the day of its signing.
In May 2012, the Ministry for the Far East Development was created. It was led by presidential plenipotentiary envoy in the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishayev. In September 2013, he was replaced by Alexander Galushka, who took the position of chairman of the United Popular Front’s central headquarters.
The Far East issue was raised by Putin, who appointed Yuri Trutnev as his plenipotentiary envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District.
