New Sberbank Board Forms

Morgan Stanley's Russia chairman Rair Simonyan was nominated to join the board of Sberbank after President Dmitry Medvedev ordered government officials to step down as directors at state-controlled companies.

Economic Development Minister Elvira Nabiullina and Medvedev's economic adviser Arkady Dvorkovich withdrew from the list of candidates, Sberbank said Tuesday in an e-mailed statement. Kazakhstan's Economic Development and Trade Minister Kairat Kelimbetov also declined a nomination.

Mikhail Matovnikov, head of corporate development at Interfax, and Alessandro Profumo, former chief executive of UniCredit and a Sberbank adviser on international expansion, may also join the board.


… 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.
