The head of the Russian Republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, signed a decree on Thursday dismissing the regional government, the republic’s website reported.
“The Cabinet completed a huge amount of work, solved the hardest problems. Altogether I am satisfied with the activities of the government,” the website reported, citing Kadyrov.
“But time goes on. We face new challenges, new problems. Naturally, solving them requires new approaches, strategies and tactics. For successful implementation of these tasks we need to make a change in government. So I signed the decree, and today the government of the republic has resigned,” Kadyrov added.
Kadyrov announced his decision during a meeting with Acting Prime Minister Magomed Daudov and deputy prime ministers of Chechnya.
“Kadyrov said that structural and personnel changes will be made aimed at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the government’s operations,” the statement said.
