Russia Watchdog Mitvol Faces Disciplinary Rap

Reuters reported that Russia's outspoken environment watchdog Oleg Mitvol, who has waged a harsh campaign against the Shell-led Sakhalin-2 energy project, faced disciplinary proceedings on Thursday that could herald his dismissal. The head of state environmental agency RosPrirodNadzor, Sergei Sai, has asked Resources Minister Yuri Trutnev to hand Mitvol a formal warning, a ministry spokesman said.

There won't be many tears in the Russian business community. Mitvol has been involved not just in Sakhalin-2 but in many other similar disputes targeting Russian and foreign businesses alike.
