Tourism chief agrees to become Norilsk Nickel’s General director
The head of Russia's Federal Travel Agency, Rostourism, has accepted the nomination to become Norilsk Nickel's general director.

Vladimir Strazalkovsky said he had accepted the proposal, as Norilsk Nickel is a stable major public company. The Norilsk board of directors will vote on his appointment at a meeting on August 8.

Strazalkovsky is an old acquaintance of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, and was nominated by billionaire Norilsk shareholder Vladimir Potanin, according to Vedomosti.
