Senator from the Amur Region became auditor Yuri Kushnar

Deputies of the Legislative Assembly of the Amur Region on Thursday elected the head of the auditing company Yuri Kushnar to the post of senator instead of Pavel Maslovsky, who had resigned, Interfax-Far East reports.

Two nominations were put to the vote. Chairman of the Legislative Assembly Konstantin Dyakonov nominated non-party Y. Kushnar, faction of the LDPR - businessman Denis Chubarov.

In a secret ballot, 22 of 34 deputies voted for Y. Kushnarya, the other 12 voted for D.Chubarova.

The election of a new senator was required because one of the founders of the Petropavlovsk gold mining alliance, P. Maslovsky, decided to leave the Federation Council ahead of time to return to the company. He represented the interests of the Amur Region in the Federation Council from December 2011 of the year and was a member of the committee on agrarian-food policy and environmental management.

Y. Kushnar is a member of the budget, taxes, economy and property committee of the Legislative Assembly of the region. He has two higher educations: he graduated from the Kiev Institute of Civil Aviation Engineers (1980 year) and the Moscow State Law Academy (1994year). Last 20 years, he heads the audit company.
