The Governor of the Novosibirsk region Vladimir Gorodetsky has complained that the rumors about the planned resignations of heads of regions do not contribute to fruitful work.

Earlier media reported that at the beginning of this week can happen early resignation of heads of regions. Among the subjects of the Federation, where, according to media reports, expected personnel changes, called Ivanovo, Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Murmansk, Novosibirsk, Omsk oblast, Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Krasnoyarsk and Altai Krai. On Monday 25 September, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on early termination of powers of the Governor of the Samara region Nikolay Merkushkin, who has written the application at own will.

«Well, the President took a decision on (Nicholas) Merkushin, there is a turnover of staff. Well guess who was appointed acting Governor of Samara region, we had a lot of contact. I was appointed by the President acting, then I got the confidence of the people. In November, the deadline. The President makes the decision. The President did not comment, so why should I comment?», — Gorodetsky told reporters.

He said that bad tendency, when an elected official — the head of the region is constantly «off». According to Gorodetsky, tactless to name the regions, which can change the power.

«It is not conducive to the work absolutely. Comes time substitutions rotations for different reasons. The President gives his opinion and makes a decision. Then it is necessary to disclose it. In our area not me to judge. I work with pleasure, fulfil the trust that I had the voters systematically to inform about all the steps that we do. Yeah, I guess like any job and in any region, there is something progressive, but there is something that can be improved and strengthened, therefore the judge, whether we find ourselves in this (list)…, gossip and rumors – not my credo», — the Governor declared.
