Plenipotentiary Representative of President against appointment of Rogozin’s niece as director of national park of Sochi
Darya Filippova received a position for the period of check concerning the former management. According to one of the versions, her candidacy was chosen for the purpose of creation of a counterbalance to the Krasnodar security officers.
Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Southern Federal District Vladimir Ustinov addressed Minister of Natural Resources Sergey Donskoy with an official request not to put niece of Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, Darya Filippova, as the head of national park of Sochi.
As it is said in the Ustinov's letter, which was published by Novaya Gazeta, Filippova has no sufficient qualification. In particular, the Plenipotentiary Representative points on the fact that for the last five years she has changed more than five places of work, moreover, within the last one and a half years Filippova has allowed about forty administrative offenses, it is noted in the document.
The Ministry of Natural Resources has already confirmed receipt of the letter, noting that appointment of Rogozin's niece a head of national park on a constant basis “was not planned”.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier with reference to Kommersant, for 15 years, being head of National park Nikolay Penkovsky, concerning whom an inspection is being held now, got the support of the high-ranking Krasnodar security officers with whose opinion the Ministry of Natural Resources should defer.
The appointment instead of Penkovsky of a relative of any high-ranking official should have shown the management of law enforcement agencies of the Krasnodar region that the decision on his dismissal was made at the highest level and is not subjected to an appeal.
