Dismissed deputy head of Federal Agency for Youth Affairs to work in Moscow City Hall
Ekaterina Dragunova will head the Moscow Committee of Public Relations.
Ekaterina Dragunova, who has been dismissed as deputy head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh), is appointed to chair the Public Relations Committee in the Moscow City Hall. This is reported by Znak referring to the order for appointment signed by Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin.
It was previously reported that November 12, Dragunova was dismissed from her position at the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs. Media reported that she had filed a letter of voluntary resignation.
Dragunova’s resignation took place against the backdrop of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service’s lawsuit on violation of antimonopoly legislation related to the conclusion of state contracts between Rosmolodezh and the winners of bids for the construction of infrastructure of the “Territory of Meanings on Klyazma” forum. Representatives of the antimonopoly agency believe that some agreements concluded by the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs limited competition, which made it impossible to lower the price during the tender.
In particular, the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service filed claims to a number of companies which, according to Znak, are affiliated with former Advisor to Rosmolodezh Director Aleksey Avetisov.
In turn, Kommersant reported that despite being checked by law enforcement officers, Aleksey Avetisov may take up a post at the Office of the President for Public Projects, but the appointment did not take place after his office had been searched.
