During the year in big politics the youngest Russian governor Dmitry Artyukhov earned the reputation as an open leader and a successful manager ready to launch a number of strategic projects of federal significance. The director of the foundation “Regional policy” Yevgeniy Zabrodin said about that to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press”.
On the 29th of May it is exactly one year as Vladimir Putin signed the decree appointing Dmitry Artyukhov the acting governor of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
Artyukhov is regularly in the TOP ratings of heads of regions. If immediately after the election in September of 2019 political scientists associated the high positions in the ratings with expectations of the new style in public administration, then now these are well-deserved dividends. They were brought by the launch of the second stage of the plant “Yamal LNG”, the active expansion of Yamal officials into social networks, the positive agenda of the region associated with construction of important infrastructural projects such as the Northern Latitudinal Railway and construction of the bridge across the Pur River. By the way, at the large press conference on the 27th of May Artyukhov promised journalists to introduce the bridge over the Pur River one year ahead of the schedule. His statements at the annual report on new measures of social support of population, in particular, introduction of effective measures to support young and large families in 2019, also contributed to the high ratings.
In “The National Rating of Governors”, which is calculated by the Center of information communications “Rating”, Dmitry Artyukhov confidently takes the 6th place.
In the rating of influence of heads of the Russian Federation subjects being calculated by APEC (The Agency of Political and Economic Communications) he takes the 4th position in the section of governors with “strong influence” (in the general rating on the 24th line). Traditionally Artyukhov occupies the top lines in the ratings of media activity.
