He thanked his colleagues for their work and recalled that Skolkovo has always been "at the forefront of innovation" in the country. The fact of receiving the application from Dvorkovich was confirmed by VEB.RF.
Earlier, the former Deputy Prime Minister of Russia, chairman of the Skolkovo Foundation and head of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) Arkady Dvorkovich advocated a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Ukraine, condemned Western sanctions and the withdrawal of foreign companies from the Russian market.
In turn, the secretary of the General Council of the United Russia party, Andrei Turchak, called on him to be fired for "national betrayal". And insisted on dismissal in disgrace.
Note that Russian leader Vladimir Putin said that the "collective West" is going to use the "fifth column" as a tool to split the Russian Federation. But the Russians, the president is sure, are able to see the difference between "true patriots and scum and traitors".
