Yury Panasik comments on expected leadership reshuffles within the Ministry of Agriculture for the "Agroinvestor" magazine

June 25, 2018
Kesarev Partner Yury Panasik believes that believes that "the options for appointing deputy Ministers of the Ministry of Agriculture on the recommendation of new Deputy Prime Minister Alexey Gordeev are not to be ruled out. This practice, for example, was typical when Arkady Dvorkovich was Deputy Prime Minister, who supervised agricultural and industrial complex among other sectors.

"The basic scenario is that all figures associated with former minister Alexander Tkachev will leave the ministry. At the same time, it is unlikely that the new minister, Dmitry Patrushev, will be able to completely renew the team in the Ministry", he supposes.

According to Yury, "people connected with the new minister are likely to be coming to the Ministry to occupy significant positions and taking responsibility for key areas in the activities of the Ministry of Agriculture. At the same time, most likely, there will still be figures in the ministry representing other federal interest groups."

Yury oversees agrarian and FMCG practices in the firm.
