Business in Brief

Sibur Head Quits MOSCOW (Vedomosti) -- Sibur president Vyacheslav Skvortsov resigned Thursday, announcing his decision after a press conference with the company's management. At the press conference, Skvortsov said blocks of shares in Sibur companies controlled by firms close to the former management had been seized and will soon be returned to Sibur. The petrochemical holding will then be able to function normally and there will be no need for its bankruptcy, Skvortsov said. It is not entirely clear why Skvortsov left his post. A source in Sibur said Skvortsov and his team had trouble getting access to the top managers of chief shareholder Gazprom and that managers feared decision-making responsibilities. ""His decision is purely technical and I wouldn't start looking for other motives,"" a source at Gazprom said.
