The board of directors of the company will be expanded from 13 to 15 people. According to experts, this measure is directly related to the creation of a post for Rosselkhozbank chairman Dmitry Patrushev, who this year could leave his post.

The son of Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolay Patrushev, banker Dmitry Patrushev could join the Board of Directors of Russian Railways JSC.

The Government of the Russian Federation recommended the candidacy of the Rosselkhozbank board chairman, Kommersant reports.

In the near future, the Board of Directors of Russian Railways will be expanded from 13 to 15 people JSC on the initiative of the Ministry of Economy. The Ministry of Economics proposed to remove former Deputy Economy Minister Stanislav Voskresensky, who in October was appointed provisional Governor of the Ivanovo region, from the Russian Railways board of directors. In his post, the department recommended the successor to Voskresensky as Deputy Minister Mikhail Rasstrigin. The remaining two seats in the board of directors of the national railway operator may be occupied by former Governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Viktor Tolokonsky and Dmitry Patrushev. The son of the FSB former director may leave the post of Rosselkhozbank head in 2018.

It should be noted that along with Tolokonsky and Rasstrigin, the Ministry of Economy offered Elena Sakhnova, the head of the engineering, transport, infrastructure and chemical industry department of VTB Capital, to the third place in the Russian Railways board of directors. However, the Government did not support her candidacy, having nominated Dmitry Patrushev instead.

According to Kommersant sources, the decision to expand the membership of the Board of Directors of Russian Railways was dictated by the desire of Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who is also head of the Rosselkhozbank supervisory board and chairman of the board of directors of Russian Railways.

The source of the edition says that the situation in Rosselkhozbank, headed by Dmitry Patrushev, has developed "quite hard" and the industry has long been discussing his possible resignation.

The recommendation of Patrushev Jr. to the board of directors of Russian Railways reflects Dvorkovich's desire to provide the banker with "a seat in at least one council." The expansion of the company's board of directors was needed to create a chair for Patrushev, the source of Kommersant stated.
