Kalimatov sacks Ingushetia government for reasons unclear
Leader of Russia's North Caucasus region of Ingushetia Makhmud-Ali Kalimatov has sacked the regional government just four months after it had been formed.
"I have made a decision to dismiss Ingushetia’s government," Kalimatov wrote on an Instagram post today. He did not explain the reasons for his decision.
Kalimatov took over the region on September 8 after he was elected by lawmakers. Days later, a new cabinet led by Prime Minister Konstantin Surikov was formed, RFE/RL recalls.
On January 22, Kalimatov appointed Vladimir Slastyonin as first deputy prime minister and Liana Pliyeva as acting economy minister.
