Putin dismissed Markin from ICR
The Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on dismissal of the official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia Vladimir Markin. The document was published on the legal information official website.
There is no a decree on appointing the new official representative of the ICR yet. Markin filed resignation on 21 of September. Answering a question about his new job during an interview with Interfax, Markin said: "It will be as open, professional and system, as it has been all these nine years."
Earlier it was reported, that Marking might be appointed as the Deputy CEO of the RusHydro for PR and GR.
Information about retirement of Markin appeared in the media on 14 of September. On the same day, RBC announced resignation of the Head of the Investigative Committee Aleksander Bastrykin. In late September, it was reported that Bastrykin filed a letter of resignation.
As Gazeta.Ru source reported later, it is likely the document, announced in the media, was an extract from the document control on Markin’s resignation.
Markin has been heading the Media Relations Committee of the ICR since 2011, when it became an independent department. Markin held a similar position in the Investigative Committee of the Russian Prosecutor's Office, which existed until 2011, since creation of the structure in 2007.
