NTK Co-Founder Leaving

With Rostelecom now holding 100 percent ownership of National Telecommunications, the general director of that Moscow broadband operator is heading to the exit, Kommersant reported.

Sergei Kalugin, a leading entrepreneur in the Russian telecoms market, will leave the company that he co-founded in the near future, the newspaper reported Thursday.

"I had planned a long time ago to take up my own business projects," Kalugin said. Kommersant quoted an anonymous source as saying Kalugin "had an agreement with Rostelecom's management to hand over the books in 2011, and he fulfilled it." Rostelecom will make a decision on a new NTK director, a NTK spokeswoman said.


… 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.
