Potanin Dropped From Council on Foreign Relations Advisory Board

Vladimir Potanin, Russia’s wealthiest man, was removed from the global advisory board at the Council on Foreign Relations in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“It would no longer be appropriate,” for Potanin, 61, to remain a member of the century-old nonprofit’s board, spokeswoman Iva Zoric said in an email. “This is effective immediately and is in light of Russia’s continuing aggression against Ukraine.”
