"Alexey Yerkhov shall be appointed Russia’s new ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to the Turkish Republic," a decree says.
Russia’s State Duma International Affairs Committee has endorsed Yerkhov as Russia’s ambassador to Turkey in May.
Alexey Yerkhov was born on October 28, 1960. Until just recently Yerkhov led the Foreign Ministry’s crisis situation management center. In 2011-2015, was Consul General of the Russian Federation in Istanbul.
The deputy head of the Council of the Russian Diplomats Association, Andrey Baklanov, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, stressed the vast experience of diplomatic work of the new Russian ambassador in Turkey. "I've known Yerhov for a long time, we worked together in the Middle East and North Africa Department and in the key embassy in the region - in Cairo, where Erkhov was the senior diplomat. He is a very initiative, very well prepared and balanced diplomat who has worked in the Consul General in Istanbul for a long time, He thoroughly knows the specifics of the situation in Turkey and our relations with the Republic of Turkey," he pointed out.
"In addition, now he is one of the most authoritative experts on the topic of unlocking acute situations, whether political or regional aspects or directly a threat to Russian citizens. Given this multifaceted situation in Turkey, I think that his appointment as an ambassador is the best option. We can only wish him success in this important work. I have no doubt that he is a worthy candidate and will be able to fulfill his duty in such a difficult period of time in Turkey," Andrey Baklanov said.
