Kahn Appointed to Board

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who headed the International Monetary Fund for four years and was France's finance minister for two, has been appointed to the supervisory board of the Russian Direct Investment Fund.

"The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dominique Strauss-Kahn to the supervisory board of the fund, which consists of 10 members," the fund said in a statement on Friday evening.

A week ago, Strauss-Kahn was appointed to the supervisory board of the Russian Regional Development Bank, owned by state oil company Rosneft.

The RDIF supervisory board is chaired by Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev. Among other board members are presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov, Central Bank Chairwoman Elvira Nabiullina, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, presidential aide Andrei Belousov and others.

… 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.
