Thus Nikolay Dmitrievich did not notify Ministry of environment about his temporary disability, the date of the issuance of the dismissal order the Ministry data, the information was not available. Currently, this decision of the court to reinstate him in the position of the Ministry of Russia appealed to the appeal», — said the representative.
