Semyonov for Svyazinvest

The Communications and Press Ministry has proposed Rostelecom vice president Vadim Semyonov to take over as CEO of state telecom holding Svyazinvest, Interfax reported Monday.

The candidacy was sent to the Federal Property Management Agency for approval, Interfax reported.

Semyonov studied at university with President Dmitry Medvedev, Vedomosti reported Monday. Svyazinvest CEO Yevgeny Yurchenko submitted his resignation last week, and the board is expected to vote on the replacement Sept. 29, Interfax reported. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
