I am writing to inform you that at their meeting of 13 February, the IEEE Regional Activities Board approved the formation of the IEEE Russia (Northwest) Section and the IEEE Russia (Siberia) Sections. The Sections will be informally known as the St. Petersburg and Siberia Sections, respectively.
At the time of the formation of the St. Petersburg Section, the following subunits were assigned to the new Section:

The St. Petersburg Section's boundaries include postal codes: 161000 - 169999; 173000 - 175999; 180000 - 199999; 236000 - 236999; 238000–238999. The interim chairperson for the St. Petersburg Section is Alexander Mikerov (email@example.com).

All other members residing in Russia are assigned to the existing Russia Section of which you are the Chair. The following subunits remain within the Russia Section:

I hope that the volunteer leadership of the Russia Section will consider the possibility of a slight change of name to reduce confusion. One name that was previously suggested was the "IEEE Russia (Central) Section". I would appreciate hearing from you what would be the preferred name and we can submit a request for approval to the Regional Activities Board to approve the name change at their meeting in June.
I hope that you will join with me and the rest of the Region 8 leadership in wishing the newly formed Sections a very successful future.
