Mr. Strashnov, head of “Mail of Russia” from April 19, 2013. Prior to that, he for four years was managed by a cellular operator “Tele2 Russia”. In April 2014 the Ministry of communications has decided to extend the contract with Dmitry strasnoy for another five years, until April 2019.

However, Mr. Strashnov recently, there is a claim the Prosecutor General’s office: November 25, her representatives said that the award of top Manager in the amount of 95,4 mln. following the results of work of the enterprise in 2014, assessed illegally, he had to get up to 3.2 mln. Prosecutors also found that in 2014 at the conclusion of the contract with Mr. Strasnoy has not been defined a value of possible rewards, which allowed “him to significantly overstate”.
In this case the employment contract has not been agreed with the government, although this requirement is contained in the resolution on the powers of the Federal state unitary enterprises.
First Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Alexander Buksman sent to the Investigative Committee of the materials of a criminal case against Dmitry Strashnov on charges of abuse of office and two senior officials of the Ministry of communications under article “Negligence”.
Now comes the test of these materials.
“My contract was signed by the head of the Ministry, — explained Dmitry Strashnov.— The illegitimacy of the contract? Why, then, my supervisor at the Deputy Prime Minister included me in the government Commission on the issues of communication, in the official delegation for the signing of contracts with their participation? It’s not the whole story.”

In early December, the media reported the recesses in the Central office of “Mail of Russia documents” relating to the salaries of its CEO and its leaders. The company said that on December 7 gave the security forces the documents upon request, these materials are not associated with payments of salaries and bonuses to management.
After the claims of the Prosecutor General, the government correctly decided to formalize the relationship with Mr. Strasnoy, said a source close to the government office, stating that a six-month contract was the idea of Nikolay Nikiforov.
The employment contract with the CEO may be concluded at any time, in accordance with the constituent documents of the company, said partner Tilling Peters Anna-Stefaniya Chepik. In relation to Dmitry Strashnov, in her opinion, it is more about management decision.
“May be taken into account the claim of the Prosecutor General to remove questions on wages. And the fact that the agreement is signed for a shorter period than the current, most likely, speaks about the future of leadership”— says the lawyer.
Kommersant’s sources also believe that upon expiration of the term of the agreement may be considered the change of management of “Mail of Russia”. But, adds one of the interlocutors “y”, “everything will depend on what the results will show the CEO”.
