Dismissed Head of Federal Customs Service in search for new job
Andrey Belyaninov can head the Eurasian Development Bank (the EDB).
The former Head of the Federal Customs Service Andrey Belyaninov became a candidate for the post of the Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Development Bank. This was reported by close to Belyaninov man to RNS and by two- nformed sources, familiar with the situation.
According to the friend of Bilyaninov, the Head of the bank - this is the level of his competence. As a doctor of economic sciences, Belyaninov worked in the banking sector in the past.
Moreover, the question of the Belyaninov's appointment as the Chairman of the EDB got up six months ago, when he asked to be relieved from office of the Head of the Federal Customs Service, said one of the sources to RNS. According to another source, Belyaninov was also considered as a candidate for working in other development bank, and talks about his employment will begin in the fall.
The remarkable thing is that Belyaninov established good relationships with partnersin the EDB. In his role as the Head of the Federal Customs Service, he led the Russian-Kyrgyz intergovernmental commission. And he also was awarded by Danaker Order, which was handed over him by the President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev for his great contribution to strengthening friendship and cooperation, the development of trade and economic relations.
After searches in Belyaninov's and a subsequent disposal of resignation Atambayev expressed that the Head of the Federal Customs Service was "unfairly treated".
It is necessary to add that the Ministry of Finance has the right to nominate candidates for the office of the Chairman of the Board of the Russian bank.
Belyaninov was the Head of the Federal Customs Service since 2006. July 26, 2016 searches in his office and a country house were carried out because of the criminal case of smuggling alcohol. Also, the Investigative Committee questioned Belyaninnov as a witness. Two days later, the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed his resignation.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
