Saule Omarova, a native of the USSR, resigned from the post in the US Treasury

Saule Omarova, a native of the USSR, refused & nbsp; appointment as head of the US Treasury Department of Foreign Exchange Control. President of the United States Joe Biden granted her & nbsp; request, the White House press service reports.

“ I & nbsp; accepted Saule Omarova's request to & nbsp; withdraw her & nbsp; candidacy from & nbsp; nomination for & nbsp; the post of head of the Office of Foreign Exchange Control & raquo ;, & nbsp; & mdash; quotes the press service of Biden's words.

It is clarified that & nbsp; Omarova made this decision, as she considered her nomination inappropriate.

Recall the nomination of Omarova, who was born in & nbsp; 1966 in & nbsp; city Uralsk (Kazakh SSR), drew sharp criticism from American lawmakers. In particular, Republican Senator John F. Kennedy asked her to & nbsp; explain her involvement in the & nbsp; & quot; Young Communist Organization & quot; & nbsp; & mdash; Komsomol. He also & nbsp; asked Omarova to confirm the exit from the & nbsp; organization liquidated back in & nbsp; 1991. And & nbsp; five Democrats from the & nbsp; Banking Committee of the Upper House of the US Congress tried to convict her of & nbsp; commitment to the ideas of communism.

Saule Omarova is a professor of banking law at Cornell University, a specialist in & nbsp; the field of regulation of financial institutions, banking law, international and & nbsp; corporate finance. In & nbsp; 1991, under the & nbsp; student exchange program between Moscow State University and & nbsp; University of Wisconsin in & nbsp; Madison, she went to the & nbsp; USA and & nbsp; remained there after the collapse of the USSR. In an & nbsp; interview, she described herself as an anti-communist.
