      MOSCOW PUTS TAX COLLECTION IN BASHKORTOSTAN IN HANDS OF THE
      OPPOSITION. Tax Minister Gennadii Bukaev announced on 27 June that he
      has appointed Aleksandr Veremeenko as director of the Tax Ministry's
      branch in Bashkortostan, "Kommersant-Daily" reported on 28 June.
      Veremeenko, a former general director of Bashtransgaz, is one of
      Bashkir President Murtaza Rakhimov's chief political opponents.
      Veremeenko was dismissed as head of Bashtransgaz on 18 June in part
      because of his open conflict with republican authorities, according
      to the daily. Aleksandr Veremeenko's brother, Sergei Veremeenko, who
      is chairman of Mezhprombank, is considered a likely challenger to
      Rakhimov in the 2003 republican presidential elections, TVS reported
      on 20 June. According to "Kommersant-Daily," the local political
      elite is in shock over Aleksandr Veremeenko's appointment. Aleksandr
      Veremeenko told the newspaper that his chief task in his new post
      will be to "struggle for the supremacy of Russian financial laws in
      Bashkortostan." JAC
