Russian opposition activist and anti-corruption blogger Alexey Navalny has been appointed to the board of directors in Aeroflot – Russia's largest airline.
Navalny was nominated for the post by Alexander Lebedev, the billionaire owning a 15 per cent stake in the flag-carrier.
The blogger drew more than 787 million votes at the airline's annual shareholder conference on Monday.
A lawyer-turned-blogger, Navalny is best-known in Russia for his anti-corruption project “Rospil”: the blogger would become a minority shareholder in state-controlled companies and fight for more transparency of their business.
In 2010 he sued largest Russian companies, including Rosneft and Transneft, for the right for the minority shareholders to receive information from the company’s executives.
Aeroflot is largely owned by the state, with the government planning to sell its 51 per cent stake by 2016 under its privatization plan.
