Experts: "Varangian" will take the place of the head of the Khabarovsk Territory

According to experts, the interim governor of the Khabarovsk Territory may become a “Varangian” who is not related to local elites. This can provoke a further increase in protest moods.

As noted in the EastRussia newsletter, it is expected that the deputy prime minister, presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, who is interested in working with loyal governors, will try to influence the determination of the interim head of the region. So, the political strategist and deputy presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, a native of Perm Kuranov, are called as the alleged candidate for the post. According to unconfirmed information, among the candidates being considered as acting head of the region are State Duma deputy Yarovaya, former head of Rosseti Budargin, and former head of the Ministry of Education and Science Kotyukov.

Local cadres are also named: State Duma deputy Boris Gladkikh, deputy chairman of the regional Duma, head of the United Russia faction Gennady Maltsev and speaker of the regional parliament, member of the Liberal Democratic Party Irina Zikunova. It is seen as a compromise option.

Political candidates already working in the Far East - the head of the Sakhalin region Valery Limarenko, the interim of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov and the interim head of the Jewish Autonomous Region Rostislav Goldshtein, but only if the two regions are combined, are also called potential applicants for the post of interim. However, these assumptions have not yet been confirmed.

Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal detained on July 9. Him suspected of organizing attempted murder and murder a number of entrepreneurs in 2004-2005. By decision of the Basmanny Court, the head of the region arrested for two months.
