Kudrin ready to head Audit Chamber
The candidacy of the former Finance Minister was put forward by the leadership of United Russia.
Ex-Minister of Finance Alexey Kudrin said that he is ready to head the Russian Audit Chamber, RBC reports with reference to three sources.
Kudrin's assistant Pavel Kuznetsov earlier told Vedomosti that the official is considering the proposal.
Earlier, it was reported that Kudrin received the United Russia’s deputies’ proposal to take Tatiana Golikova’s post.
“Yes, I received an offer from United Russia to run [for this position], for me, it's a little unexpected, and I'll seriously think about it. In the near future, I will meet with the leadership of the factions,” Kudrin previously said.
The candidacy of the current chairman of the Audit Chamber, Tatyana Golikova, was earlier proposed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev for the post of vice-premier for social policy. Golikova said she was ready to work in the new post.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
