Abdul-Vahed Niyazov, the head of Islamic Cultural Center of Russia [public wing of the Council of Mufties of Russia] said that Khloponin "comes to Caucasus as an effective manager". Among his merits he mentioned timely solution of key social and economic problems of Krasnoyarsk region.
In his view, Khloponin, as a Russian and non-origin of North Caucasus, is free from local national and clan biases and predilections.
The aim of his work will be to "prove own effectiveness as anti-crisis manager of a large region," Niyazov said.
On January 19th Dmitry Medvedev, the President of Russia, signed an order on seven Russian regions constituting the North Caucasian federal district.
Alexander Khloponin, the governor of Krasnoyarsk region, became the President's Plenipotentiary in the new district. He was also appointed the Vice Prime Minister.
The new federal district includes: Chechnya, Ingushetia, North Ossetia, Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachai-Circassia, with the centre in Pyatigorsk. Previously these regions were included in Southern federal district.
