The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, considered the refusal of Rosneft to build a bitumen plant in Chechnya "strange". Previously, the oil company proposed to build a bitumen plant instead of building an oil refinery in Grozny.
Since November 2016, political experts and media demonstrate keen interest to the Kemerovo region and its leader. High-profile terminations and arrests of regional officials and law enforcement officers, the illness of the Governor, and his disappearance from the public sight have sparked numerous rumors and speculations. According to the most recent prognosis, Tuleev has to testify as a witness in the ‘Inskoy Pit case’ and potentially faces jail.
