MP State Duma Alexander Lebedev, leaving politics

September 6 2007

The leader of the Moscow "Socialist-Revolutionaries", a State Duma deputy Alexander Lebedev likely will not participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The reason for a deputy out of the game were not political, and economic opportunities.

According to the newspaper , "Your Day" , Lebedev asked to lead the corporation, bringing together major airlines, state-controlled. Its share in this public-private partnership, Alexander Lebedev received in exchange for he owns 30% stake in Aeroflot. As emphasized by the source publications, Lebedev in July unsuccessfully tried to exchange its stake in Aeroflot, where he had no real impact on the shares owned Vneshtorgbank European aerospace corporation (EADS). So that entry into the global structure as a shareholder and director for Alexander Paton was the best option. "The state has gone to meet him. This business is politics," - said the source.

In addition, Alekandr Lebedev is the president of the National Reserve Bank, co-owner of aircraft leasing company Ilyushn Finance Company "and also a member of several other business projects. It is obvious that under these conditions combine political action with the work on becoming the country's largest aviakorporatsii is simply unrealistic.

In this case, it does not go the full suspension Lebedeva from politics. Banker still believes the party "Fair Russia" forward-looking political force, though somewhat distanced from it. In particular, yesterday on Radio Echo of Moscow Mr. Lebedev has denied any involvement in the fraction of A Just Russia in the Duma. "You call me a member of the faction, I am not yet a member, I am still an independent MP. Let's see how it will be my destiny to grow," - he said.

It seems that the deputy had his own reasons to emphasize his independence. Recall that last erupted serious scandal yet another MP from the faction "CP" Yevgeny Roizman. According to IA REGNUM , has reached an agreement with federal authorities that the through-ranking in the Sverdlovsk region will be the deputy of the City Council Korolev (Moscow region). Kerselyan and Sergey member of the Board of Deputies Elektrostal Andrew Zavorotny. In this case, the leaders of the Sverdlovsk regional branch of the Fair Russia Duma deputy Yevgeny Roizman and singer, bard, Alexander Novikov out of the market, without the slightest chance of getting seats in case of success, "Fair Russia" in the election.

Roizman itself did not officially commented on the situation, but in his diary, "Live Journal" had this eloquent note: "If someone does not know to report: politics - shit. And full bl.dstvo. I'm trying to understand what I'm doing here," - reports MP, clearly referring to the home party.

Earlier plans to break the "Fair Russia" said State Duma deputy Alexander Chuyev , expressing dissatisfaction with the arrival of a party supporter of the gay movement, MP Alexei Mitrofanov, but later denied the rumors of his resignation, saying that would come from the "Just Russia" "Even if tomorrow will come to our party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky and Zyuganov simultaneously." "It is not important who joined the party, and what values the party stands for," said the MP, in his blogs.
