Vagit Alekperov's company could have caused a massive fish freeze in the spawning river. Local residents and scientists associate it with the works at the Pyakyakhinskoye deposit of LUKOIL. YANAO officials are afraid to investigate the incident.
The head of the region was 30-year-old Dmitry Artyukhov. His father, Andrei Artyukhov, is vice-speaker of the Tyumen Regional Duma and a prominent party activist of United Russia.
