First Deputy Minister for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic Alexander Krutikov resigns
First Deputy Minister for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic Alexander Krutikov has announced that he is leaving his job and moving on to a new position.
“I am completing my job at the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic. For six and a half years I had the honor of working with one of the country’s best managerial teams. I am not going to evaluate my performance,” Krutikov wrote on Facebook.
He said he planned to leave the government office back in 2018, but was encouraged to stay on because of “a new sphere of responsibilities.” “Helping develop the Arctic during the past two years was more than just part of my official duties. I will continue doing this in my new position, which you will learn about soon,” he wrote.
He added that he was proud of the projects he was responsible for, such as the Far Eastern Hectare, the introduction of investment quotas to incentivize fishing, and the creation of a client-focused system of support for investors.
“And the last but not the least attraction was the Arctic, which was declared a special economic zone in 2020 with a long list of incentives and privileges for the creation of new companies and jobs. I would like to point out that the basis for boosting the development of Russia’s Arctic regions has been created. I am grateful to the national leadership for giving me this opportunity to make a modest contribution to the common cause of Russia’s development. Thank you, Mr. Yury Trutnev,” Krutikov wrote on social media.
Before his appointment to the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic, Alexander Krutikov was on the management team of the Odintsovo Municipal District in the Moscow Region. He took a job at the ministry on October 7, 2016 and was promoted to first deputy minister on October 27, 2020.
