Anatoly Chubais, a senior advisor to Russian President, Vladimir Putin has quit his job as a Kremlin envoy to international organizations.
“Chubais has resigned at his own request,” Kremlin spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov said, NAN reports.
Chubais’ resignation was reportedly linked to Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine, but Peskov insisted that it was a “personal” decision.
It was reported that the 66-year-old Moscow insider was leaving Russia for Turkey.
Chubais took office as a special representative to international organizations back in December 2020.
Decades earlier, under the regime of former president Boris Yeltsin, Chubais was an architect of Russia’s post-Soviet transition to a market economy.
The war between Ukraine and Russia began in February and many casualties have already been recorded.
