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.
According to the company, Medvedev has been "relieved of his post", effective immediately. 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. Gazprom Deputy Chief Executive Valery Golubev has also been sacked, and Management Committee member and Head of Department 307 Vsevolod Cherepanov is being reassigned to other responsibilities.
