Chubais Under Fire

MOSCOW -- The State Duma is drafting a resolution recommending the dismissal of Anatoly Chubais from the reins of Russia's power monopoly, Unified Energy Systems.

The chairman of the Duma's security committee, Communist Viktor Ilyukhin, said at a news conference Tuesday the lower house would discuss the draft Wednesday in the context of a debate on energy supplies in Russia's regions. Chubais as well as Fuel and Energy Minister Sergei Generalov have been invited.

"There is no need to make deep studies to realize that after Chubais became the head of UES, the country was left without light or heat," Ilyukhin said.
