Rosneft gives $63m-bonus to board members in 2016
Meanwhile, the wages of the state-owned company’s top managers have been reduced by 16%.
The state oil company reported the 2016 income of its board members. It shows a 16%-lower salary of the management compared to the previous year, yet a 40% higher remuneration for attendance at board meetings.
The company's board is composed of 10 persons: Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, the first vice-president, the vice-president and the chief financial officer. At the end of 2016, they received a total remuneration of 3.697 billion rubles (about $63m). Meanwhile, the remuneration has increased by 38.9% and reached 113.226 million rubles, and the wages decreased by 16.1% and amounted to 572.275 million rubles. The top managers got the same bonuses that they did in 2015, 2.006 billion rubles. In addition, Rosneft reported travel expenses of Board members that reached 1.005 billion rubles.
You may remember that the Forbes named Igor Sechin Russia’s second most expensive top-manager in 2015: his income was estimated to be $13 million, which was $4.5 million less than a year before that. Gazprom’s Chairman of the Board Alexey Miller got to the top of the ranking with $17.7 million he made in 2015.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
