Kudrin says that after his inspections 40 generals lost their posts
The former head of the Ministry of Finance intends to be strict in implementing service regulations.
Head of the Center for Strategic Initiatives Alexey Kudrin commented on his nomination for the post of head of the Russian Audit Chamber. Speaking at a meeting of the committee on regulations in the State Duma, he said that his connections in the government and business would not cause problems in his new position.
The former minister also noted that he intends to adhere to service regulations strictly. As an example, he cited the audit he conducted as head of the presidential control department in 1996. According to Kudrin, as a result of the inspection, 40 generals in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ministry of Defense were deprived of their posts.
It is to be added that the candidacy of Kudrin for the post of head of the Audit Chamber was proposed earlier by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The State Duma will consider the appointment of the ex-minister as the AC chairman on May 22.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
