Deputy Prime Minister and presidential envoy Yuriy Trutnev retained his positions and functions in the new government, however the minister of the profile department, Alexander Galushka, who served in this position for almost five years (since September of the year 2013), was replaced, the EastRussia bulletin says. The governor of the Amur Region, Alexander Kozlov, was appointed the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Far East.

The change of the minister is unlikely to lead to a serious change in the roles in managing the development of the Far East. Recently, criticism has been voiced about the inadequate effectiveness of the created territories of advanced development and free ports, which can repeat the fate of the closed SEZs. Sounded and criticism of the program for the issuance of "Far Eastern hectares" against the background of a continuing general outflow of population. The new minister does not yet have sufficient hardware weight and connections in Moscow, which is likely to lead to the even more prominent leading role of Yuri Trutnev in the Far Eastern bloc of the government. At the same time, the ministry will continue to work in the former regime and, probably, in practically the same composition. Considering the last "May" decree of the President, much attention will be paid to the development of the social sphere. But it can not be ruled out that, in the case of a very likely optimization of spending on regional development programs, Minskostokrazvitiya will now find it more difficult to realize its interests.

It should be noted that at the stage of discussion of possible candidacies for the post of minister, observers also pointed to Khabarovsk governor Vyacheslav Shport, Sakhalin governor Oleg Kozhemyako and deputy Yury Trutnev, a member of his team Grigory Kuranov.

Appointed to the post Alexander Kozlov was born on Sakhalin and, unlike the "Muscovite" Alexander Galushka, is "local" for the macroregion. In addition, he is a protege of Oleg Kozhemyako: he came to replace the latter as head of the Amur region in 2015, after Oleg Kozhemyako went to lead the Sakhalin region in connection with the resignation of Alexander Horoshavin.
