“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
