Anatoly Chubais, Putin’s top adviser, resigns and leaves Russia

Anatoly Chubais, Russia’s climate envoy and adviser to President Vladimir Putin, reportedly resigned and left Russia on Wednesday, becoming the highest-ranking officer to leave the Kremlin since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began on Wednesday. last month.

The 66-year-old business oligarch, known for overseeing Russian privatization under then-President Boris Yeltsin after the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, resigned over his opposition to the war of Putin in Ukraine, Bloomberg reported citing two sources familiar with the situation.

A Kremlin spokesman, however, declined to confirm Chubais’ reasoning to other media.

Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, told the Financial Times it was a “personal matter”. A source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Chubais quit his post for ties to international organisations.

Russian newspaper Kommersant printed a picture from Chubais on Wednesday who supposedly shows it at an ATM in Istanbul.
