How are the detention of the speaker and the race for Gelandewagen
After the arrest of the speaker there were different versions about the causes of events. On one of them, the Minister became a victim of infighting because of the privatization of shares of “Rosneft”.
“Now Sechin is struggling with Alekperov (head of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov. – Approx. NEWSru.com), and because of this, arrested the speaker. The drama of the story Ulyukaev shows that the probability of purchase “Rosneft” “LUKOIL” was great. A couple of weeks ago, when Putin was in Astrakhan, he invited Alekperov to his car and suggested him to buy sold a package of “Rosneft”. Sechin has realized that you need to actively confront this scenario. This is exactly what he’s doing right now”, – said political analyst Stanislav Belkovsky “Open Russia”.
“Moreover, it is scandalous criminal case of the street racers, among whom was the son of a top Manager of “LUKOIL”, is also included in the packet counter”, – said Belkovsky. We are talking about proceeding with Ruslan Shamsuarov, son of the Vice-President of LUKOIL, who was sentenced to correctional labor for racing Gelandewagen and robbed of an expensive car.
We also add that the press Secretary and the Vice-President of “Rosneft” Mikhail Leontyev after the arrest of the Minister made this statement: “Dates for anything, just because it’s so beautiful! Perfect rudeness! I understand there Alekperov or other people! Quite insolent!” Then Leontev has apologized to the head of “LUKOIL”.
