Frustrated by the lack of power that the boards of Russian state-owned companies have, banking and media mogul Alexander Lebedev has recommended his own son for the board of Aeroflot. The news was released by the airline's press team. His son is 15-months old.
Мораль сей шутки такова:в советах госкомпании практически нет реальных полномочий-зачем там взрослые люди?— Alexander Lebedev (@lebedevalex) February 27, 2013
For those of you not versed in Russian, Lebedev says that the point of his joke is that as state company boards have no real power, why have adults at all?
