Royalty for Svyazinvest

Communications and Press Minister Igor Shchyogolev has suggested that Prince Alexander Trubetskoy replace him on the board of directors at telecoms holding Svyazinvest.

Shchyogolev made a written proposal to Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov, a source close to the Communications and Press Ministry said.

Trubetskoy was born in Paris in 1947, the son of Russian immigrants Prince Alexander Trubetskoi and Princess Alexandra Golitsyn. He worked for companies supplying computer systems to the Academy of Sciences, TASS, Morflot, RAO UES of Russia and Gazprom from 1975 to 1994.

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.
