Russian Bankers May Replace Officials on Boards, Kommersant Says

April 5 (Bloomberg) -- Bankers including Morgan Stanley’s Rair Simonyan may be chosen to replace state officials on the boards of Russian state-owned companies, Kommersant reported, citing unidentified government officials.

Simonyan may replace Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin at OAO Rosneft, Russia’s largest oil company, the Moscow-based newspaper said today.

Candidates for other directorships include Alexander Shokhin, the head of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, who may become OAO Aeroflot’s chairman, Kommersant said. Ernst & Young’s Alexander Ivlev may replace Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko on pipeline operator OAO Transneft’s board, according to the newspaper.

President Dmitry Medvedev on April 2 issued an order to remove by July 1 eight deputy prime ministers and ministers from the boards of major state-run companies that they also regulate as cabinet members.
