The United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) has abolished the presidency because there is “only one president” in the country. This was stated by the head of the USC Alexei Rakhmanov, reports RBC.
“For the fifth day already, I’m not the president of USC, but just the general director,” Rakhmanov said. He explained that the relevant changes were approved, made to the charter of the company and entered into force. In the future, they will be followed by other organizational rearrangements.

“Why we did this, the answer is very simple – the president in the country is one, we all know him very well, and everything else should have its own names,” Rakhmanov explained.
Earlier in Russia, the authorities changed the name of the posts of heads of regions of the country. In September 2010, the parliament of Chechnya – at the suggestion of Ramzan Kadyrov himself – decided to change the name of the post of the head of the region from “president” to “head of the republic”. Kadyrov explained his proposal on renaming the presidents of the republics of Russia that “there should be only one president in a single state”, and the “parade of regional presidents” should be stopped.
