NOVOSIBIRSK, January 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Mayor of Novosibirsk, a major town in Russia’s Siberia, Vladimir Gorodetsky, who announced his resignation on Thursday, was appointed as deputy governor of the Novosibirsk region.
Deputy mayor Vladimir Zntakov will act as mayor until the mayoral election in autumn 2014.

“In 2012-2013, the Novosibirsk region government decided to develop Novosibirsk agglomeration,” he said. “This is a very large-scale project that will change life and territory of one of the biggest cities. We need a professional, who will be able to cope with this work. I invited Vladimir Gorodetsky to work on the issue in the capacity of deputy governor.”
