TNK-BP Board Mulls Chief

The board of TNK-BP will discuss the position of chief executive at a meeting on Sept. 22, Viktor Vekselberg, one of the shareholders, said Monday in the Kremlin.

Vekselberg declined to elaborate.

Mikhail Fridman's term as interim chief executive of the Moscow-based oil venture, 50-50 owned by BP and a group of billionaires, was extended beyond a January deadline, while his approved successor Maxim Barsky has remained deputy chief executive.


… 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.
