– The topic of our today’s meeting and conversation is clear. Especially I have nothing to ask you, because I already know practically everything. I know your biography, work, service. I only have one question really. Are you ready for the job offered? Do you want it internally? – said Putin.
– I’m ready to go, – answered Menyailo.
Sergei Menyailo moved to Siberia five years ago from Sevastopol, where he served as governor
From April 2014 to October 2016, Menyailo was the governor of Sevastopol. On July 28, 2016, he was appointed Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Siberian Federal District. Also in August 2016, he entered the Security Council.

Ordinary Novosibirsk citizens Sergey Menyailo, most likely, will be remembered by traffic jams. The NGS published a series of materials on the traffic situation at a busy intersection in the Zaeltsovsky district. For several years now, on weekdays, traffic has been stopped there at rush hour for the sake of a Mercedes with flashing lights, which is accompanied by a traffic police crew. Presumably, it was on this car that the envoy of Menyailo got to work every morning.
