Russia Ukraine War Latest Updates: Russia Anatoly Chubais, Vladimir Putin’s senior counsellor, resigns and departs the country due to the Ukraine conflict.1 min read
Anatoly Chubais, a close assistant to Russian President Vladimir Putin, has resigned and departed the country, claiming his opposition to the former’s conflict in Ukraine. Anatoly Chubais is widely regarded as the mastermind of Russia’s post-Soviet economic reforms. He was chosen as Putin’s special representative for ties with foreign bodies in 2020. One of the variables that prompted Putin to initiate a military action in Ukraine last month is Ukraine’s desire to join NATO. Three rounds of in-person negotiations between Ukrainian and Russian delegations have taken place in Belarus in an attempt to end the conflict. In the late 1990s, he was the chief of staff for former President Boris Yeltsin.
