At present, the position of the network’s CEO is vacant. VKontakte’s founder Pavel Durov resigned from this post in late April.
The conflict between VKontakte’s shareholders has delayed the appointment of a new CEO, whose duties are now performed on a temporarily basis by Boris Dobrodeyev.
Earlier on Tuesday, Mail.Ru Group, which owned 52% in VKontakte, said that it had consolidated 100% of the social network by acquiring the remaining stake from investment fund United Capital Partners (UCP), controlled by Ilya Shcherbovich, for $1.47 billion.
UCP, Mail.Ru Group and Pavel Durov also agreed to abolish mutual claims.
