MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Railways RZD President Vladimir Yakunin has dismissed the rumors alleging his resignation, saying they all look like "spring aggravation."
"You always hear such rumors," Yakunin told reporters on Tuesday. "We have spring aggravation, autumn aggravation and Olympic aggravation. I'm not the only person "slated for resignation," there are higher-ranking officials. What we showed at the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum and at Sochi shows that the company is capable, composed and can fulfill public and state tasks," Yakunin said.
Yakunin's contract as RZD president expires in June 2014.
