The governor of the Jewish Autonomous Region was dismissed by the President

According to the press service of the Kremlin, the President signed a decree appointing Alexander Levintal as acting governor of the Jewish Autonomous Region.

In accordance with the document, the change of the head of the region occurs in connection with the expiry of 25 February of the powers of the acting governor Alexander Vinnikov. Alexander Levintal was appointed acting until the election of a new governor.

The probable reasons are the dissatisfaction of the federal center with how Vinnikov coped with the consequences of the floods in the Far East in 2013, as well as the overall low rating of the governor, writes RBC.
