Zubkov Staying at Gazprom

BARVIKHA, Moscow Region — Former First Deputy Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov will continue to chair the board of directors of Gazprom and perhaps take on some other work, Interfax cited Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich as saying Friday.

"Viktor Zubkov is head of the board of Gazprom and will be doing this work with the utmost intensity," Dvorkovich said.

He did not rule out that Zubkov might take on "additional types of activity" as well.

He responded tersely to a question about former Agriculture Minister Yelena Skrynnik. "What's going on with her, I don't know," Dvorkovich said.
