Russian Government found replacement of Ulyukaev in Gazprom Board of Directors
The Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov can get a seat of the former Head of the Ministry of Economic Development (MED) on the Board.
The Russian Government approved the list of candidates to the Board of Directors and the Auditing Commission of Gazprom. According to the order, to the place of the former Head of the MED Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov is nominated.
There is no other choice - all members of current Gazprom Board of Directors are included in the list of candidates. For example, in the list there are Head of the Board Viktor Zubkov, Chairman of the Board Alexey Miller, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak, Chairman of Gazprombank Andrey Akimov, rector of the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Mau and others.
Recall, Ulyukaev, who was included in Gazprom Board of Directors till the end of June 2016. However, in mid-November of last year, the ex-Minister was detained while taking a bribe of 2 million dollars and placed under house arrest. Ulyukaev was expelled from the council and dismissed from his post in connection with the loss of confidence.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
