  • Oleg Kuvshinnikov officially assumed office of Vologda Oblast Governor

  • The inauguration ceremony was held in Vologda on September 23. The newly elected governor took the oath and told about further plans of the regional development.

    It is worth reminding that local residents elected the Vologda Oblast Governor on the single voting day, on September 14. These were the first direct gubernatorial elections in the Vologda region during the last ten years. The governor was appointed by the Russian President before. Over 180 thousand inhabitants of the region voted for Oleg Kuvshinnikov. It was almost 63 percent of the people coming to the polling stations.

    Georgy Shevtsov, chairman of the Oblast Legislative Assembly, commented upon the issue: “Any election campaign is the main exam for every politician. Oleg Kuvshinnikov has passed it with honour. He has produced a good result and has won the support of most of our electors”.

    Andrey Travnikov, Deputy Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Northwestern Federal District, also congratulated the Vologda Oblast Governor on the election: “I congratulate you on the fact that you have gained confident confirmation of the correctness of your actions from the population in the course of the election campaign. I wish you further success!”

    It is worth reminding that Oleg Kuvshinnikov worked as the Vologda Oblast Governor during 2,5 years before the election. His election program continued the chosen course: diversification of the economy, import substitution, food security in the region, development of the social sphere, culture, education and public health.

    “Our task is dynamic development in all directions. We are to improve the life of every resident, to secure comfortable everyday life, respectable salaries and pensions, social protection, stability and public safety, reliability and confidence in future. Dear friends, I believe that our region has bright future. We have a lot to be proud of and to strive for. We will have to work hard, but we must be together and only advance”, declared Vologda Oblast Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov.

    The matter concerns complex development of districts, cities and towns of the Vologda region. First of all, it applies to the regional capital. The tasks of the city and the regional authorities completely coincide there.

    A lot depends on the governor. In fact, Vologda’s residents entrusted their fate during the next five years to Oleg Kuvshinnikov. I want to say that he is the head who always set stretch tasks and I think you can take the lead using such an approach”, noted Vologda’s Mayor Yevgeny Shulepov.

    The Vologda Oblast Government resigned commission on the inauguration days of the newly elector governor. In accordance with the Statute, the Governor is to make a team anew. Oleg Kuvshinnikov declared that formation of the new government would begin in the next few days.
