"On January 20, I turned 65. And although all men are boys at heart, I am still one of the oldest governors in the country. And, of course, you need to give way to the young." This weeper speech was delivered by Sergei Zhvachkin, governor of the Tomsk region. He has been in charge of the region since 2012.

Igor Vasiliev, governor of the Kirov region since 2017, acting since 2016. He announced his resignation "due to the end of his term of office". As if the end of the term of office once stopped someone. At the same time, Vasiliev pacified the Russians with a promise to continue his activities at the federal level.

Nikolay Lyubimov, пovernor of the Ryazan region from 2017. On May 10, 2022, he announced his refusal to be re-elected to the post of governor in the next election.

Valery Radaev, пovernor of the Saratov кegion from 2021. He decided not to graze the rear in the race from the sinking ship and announced his resignation.

Alexander Evstifeev, the governor of Mari El, joined the patriots of his country and announced his resignation.
