ST PETERSBURG, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - Federation Council member Dmitry Ananyev, who earlier announced his resignation, is stepping down because of the law which bans officials and parliamentarians from owning assets abroad.

"FC member Dmitry Ananyev acted like a law-abiding citizen. He analyzed once again the law that places restrictions on civil servants to have foreign assets. He decided to continue his business," house speaker Valentina Matviyenko told reporters during a break in the FC visiting session in St Petersburg on Wednesday.

"Today, we'll pass the decision on relieving him of his duties in accordance with the law," Matviyenko added.

Ananyev represents the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomus Area. He was ranked the richest FC member by last year results declaring 700 million roubles of income in 2012 /up 200 million roubles from the previous year/.
