The Russian government approved German ex-chancellor Gerhard Schroeder as a candidate to head Rosneft’s Board of directors.

According to the source, the corresponding directive was signed in mid-September.

“Under the directive, Schroeder was nominated as a candidate for Chairman of the Board of directors of Rosneft,” the source said.

Rosneft did not comment on this information. Currently, the position of Chairman of the company’s Board of directors is taken by presidential aide Andrey Belousov.

Extraordinary meeting of Rosneft shareholders will be held on September 29 in St. Petersburg.
