Now the top manager will head the Ruskhimalyans company of the Photo: Alexander the Board of directors of Gazprom approved by Ryumin/TASS 44-year-old Kirill Seleznyov's resignation from posts of the board member and head of Gazprom mezhregiongaz. To Seleznyov who in media is called one of Alexey Miller's confidants already found new work, and too in structures of Gazprom. Whether it is possible to connect these shifts with case of multi-billion plunders of gas in regions to which is connected including the former adviser of Kirill Seleznyov Raul Arashucov? Seleznyov on a post of the head of Gazprom mezhregiongaz was responsible for gas sale to the Russian consumers. The company had serious problems with non-payments. The juicy scandal burst in January when the prosecutor's office of Chechnya obliged to write off over 9 billion rubles of debts of inhabitants of the republic for gas. According to media, only after intervention of the federal center the Supreme Court of the republic cancelled this decision. It is the first moment. The second moment — the fact that Raul Arashucov, one of persons involved in a high-profile case about plunder of gas for the total amount more than 30 billion rubles was Seleznyov's adviser. Also his son, senator from Karachay-Cherkessia Rauf Arashucov, and the cousin of the member of the Federation Council, the CEO of the Gazprom Gas Distribution Astrakhan and Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Astrakhan companies Ruslan Arashucov are connected to this case.

Seleznyov directed Mezhregiongaz a third of life. Interlocutors of Vedomosti spoke about it as about the member of "Miller's team" and "untouchable". Now Miller's colleague will head "Ruskhimalyans". This is the operator of the project of creation gas-chemical and a LNG complex near Ust-Luga.
