Former Kostroma Region governor replaces Govoryun

Former Kostroma Region Governor Igor Slyunyaev has been appointed Minister for Regional Development, replacing Oleg Govoryun who apparently resigned after being rebuked by President Vladimir Putin.

According to business daily Kommersant, it will be up to Slyunyaev to balance the interests of major financial-industrial groups in the construction sector, which consider the Ministry to be a pipeline for major state construction orders.
