Alexander Medvedev is history at Gazprom, the company announces in a brief stock exchange notice Monday afternoon. Medvedev has otherwise been one the gas company's key figures, and he managed relations between Gazprom and long series of authorities within the EU – not least of all in connection with Baltic gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, in which Gazprom has played a central role in recent years.

The deputy chairman, who served the company for many years and held responsibility for Gazprom's exports to the EU, will be accompanied by another executive on his way out the building.
