Vladimir Putin signed the decree on dismissing the so-called governor of Sevastopol – Sergey Menyaylo. From now on, he will take up a post of Presidential Envoy to Siberia federal district.
Menyaylo became the head of the occupied city of Sevastopol in April 2014, after annexing the Crimea. He is notorious for advising Crimea Tatars "to explore territories very-very high in the mountains".
