MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Top-ranking officials will return to the boards of directors of Gazprom, Rosneft and other Russian strategic companies, Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukayev told reporters on Wednesday.

He said he meant the “companies included in the list of strategic (according to the Russian government’s executive order 91-r).” This list currently includes some 40 companies, including Rosneft, Gazprom, Aeroflot, ALROSA and others.

Uluykayev said that officials currently work in the state companies’ boards, but they are not high-ranking officials. “Now we will apparently have to return them,” the minister said, adding that the decision would be made shortly.

Cabinet ministers and vice premiers had been members of the boards of directors of strategic companies before October 2011. In the spring of 2011, Dmitry Medvedev who then held the post of the Russian president, instructed the ministers and vice premiers to leave state companies’ boards of directors by October 1, 2011. After that deputy ministers usually represented the state in the companies’ boards of directors.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at the Gaidar Forum on Wednesday that he regarded the return of high-ranking officials to the boards of directors of state companies as a proper solution.
