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.

The 66-year-old Moscow insider’s resignation was reportedly linked to Russia’s war against Ukraine, but Peskov said that it was a “personal” decision.

It was reported that Chubais was leaving Russia for Turkey.

Chubais, long seen as a member of the Kremlin’s liberal camp and who also held the climate portfolio, took office as a special representative to international organisations in December 2020.

Decades earlier, under then-president Boris Yeltsin, Chubais was an architect of Russia’s post-Soviet transition to a market economy.

The war between Russia and Ukraine began in February and many casualties have already been recorded.
