Yesterday co-owner NK YUKOS Leonid Nevzlin has submitted a resignation from a post of the rector of the Russian state humanitarian university (RGGU). It has undertaken this step to take away from university reorganisation threat. (On such possibility informed yesterday.)
Leonid Nevzlin has directed the Resignation to two addresses: in an academic council of the university and in Minobrazovanija. The reason of dismissal mister Nevzlin named transition to new work on which, in the statement it is not specified. However, in oral comments he has informed that will continue to be engaged in humanitarian projects, but already as the vice-president of board of fund Open Russia . (Thus the fund becomes a refuge for disgraced businessmen. We will remind that the prisoner Sailor`s Silence Michael Khodorkovsky has declared that after leaving from YUKOS will head company welfare fund Open Russia .)
However new work - only formal explanation. Mister Nevzlin admitted that the resignation intends to deduce from - under blow RGGU, after all otherwise to high school liquidation " threatened; (on an academic council the Minister of Education has suggested to reorganise university, having included in its structure technical school or school). On the same academic council the Minister of Education, insisting on preschedule re-elections of rector RGGU, complained about constant absence of the head on a workplace. But, as have informed in a press - to service Minobrazovanija, especially confused the minister a dual citizenship of mister Nevzlina (on November, 6th the shareholder of YUKOS became the citizen of Israel). After all under the law on state secret the head of the enterprise working with the classified information, cannot have a dual citizenship. RGGU possesses such status (as a part of university there is an Institute of information sciences and technologies of the safety, preparing experts and for FSB).
the President of university Yury Afanasev to make comments on voluntary retirement of mister Nevzlina has refused. In a press - to service RGGU have informed that, as well as it was planned, the academic council which will consider the statement of the rector on November, 20th will take place. If resignation is accepted, the academic council will propose other nominee on this post. Under data, the name of new rector RGGU is already known. Most likely, the present pro-rector of university Valery Minaev fulfilling duties of the rector while that was outside of the country becomes them.
according to Leonid Nevzlina, it and further plans to remain in Israel: After incident with RGGU my chances of quiet life in Russia have strongly decreased. Now it is obvious to me that I am not necessary to the power, so, will pursue me to continue and further . At the university consider that the act the rector has specified on political grounds of actions of the power . However, despite regrets concerning leaving of the shareholder of YUKOS with rektorskogo a post, in RGGU recognise that their life becomes quieter now.
