Reshuffles in the government and among the security forces

May 24, 2024

This week's update of the 6000 list reflects the reshuffles that have already taken place in the Russian Government. This has entailed resignations among governors, some of whom have moved to new positions at the federal level. Their places as heads of regions have been taken by new people. 

The update also reflects changes in the structures of the Ministry of Defence. Several more high-ranking military commanders have left their posts due to the ongoing arrests on corruption charges of the subjects of our investigations and other officials. In addition, we have updated data on the regional heads of the security agencies that guard the regime: Investigative Committee officials, prosecutors, and the heads of regional FSB and Rosgvardia directorates.
