Aleksandr Lebedev, one of the shareholders in Russia's biggest air carrier, Aeroflot, has nominated his child to the company's Board of Directors. That's according to an official press report, released by Aeroflot. Egor Lebedev was born in November 2011.
There are 14 people proposed to Aeroflot's Board of Directors in total. Among other nominees, put forward by the National Reserve Bank, which is owned by Lebedev Senior, are the Bank's CEO, Andrey Manoylo and Director of Macroeconomic Research at Higher School of Economics, Sergey Aleksashenko.
Current member of Aeroflot's board of directors, famous activist and blogger Aleksey Navalny hasn't made it to the list of nominees reportedly at his own request, voiced to Aleksandr Lebedev personally. Navalny was originally nominated for the position by Lebedev himself, but it's rumored he hasn't lived up to businessman's expectations.
The meeting of Aeroflot's shareholders is scheduled for June 24 where 11 final candidates will be chosen.
