MOSCOW, July 29 /ITAR-TASS/. Chairman of Foreign Policy Committee in the upper house of Russian parliament, Mikhail Margelov, Izvestia daily says in its Tuesday issue quoting the deputy chairman of the same committee, Andrei Klimov.
“Everyone knows already that Margelov hasn’t been entered the list of candidates for senators representing the Pskov region,” he said. “It’s an accomplished fact. I don’t know where he will get a new position, nor do I know who will be the next chairman of our committee.”
“I think the problem of replacing Margelov will be taken up when the term of his duties winds up,” Klimov said.
Sources have told Izvestia that the Acting Governor of Russia’s northwest Pskov region, Andrei Turchak, did not enter Margelov in the list of candidates for senators who will represent the region’s executive branch of power.
The newspaper believes that Margelov, who has extensive experience in the field of foreign policy and international contacts, will take up a job at the Russian Foreign Ministry.
