Now, Russian Post is headed by Dmitry Strashnov, but his contract expires at the end of June. According to Dvorkovich, the Government is considering both an option of prolongation of the contract and change the Head of the company. The Vice Prime Minister stressed that there are several candidates for this post; some of them have already been mentioned in the media.
Previously, Kommersant wrote that prosecutors have a claim to the leadership of Russian Post. In particular, the supervisory authority established that Strashnov illegally awarded his deputies with bonuses amounting to 270 million rubles ($4 660 230) for the work in 2014-2015. Prior to that, the Prosecutor's Office sent materials to bring an action on a similar article against Russian Post Head for the illegal bonus amounting to 95 million rubles ($1 636 830).
