Meanwhile, Ilya Yuzhanov informed RBC that at the supervisory board of ALROSA as of November 20, there were no directives or recommendations on the new candidacy of the company's president from the Federal Property Management Agency.

According to him, Yakutia decided on its candidates in late September this year. "The shareholders of ALROSA sent me proposals, including the Republic of Yakutia - two candidates. These people are not from the company, but from the outside. One of them is vice-chairman of the government of Yakutia Alekseev. But this (who is specifically invited from Yakutia) is not so important, it is necessary that all shareholders speak out and sit down to negotiate, "Ilya Yuzhanov told Interfax earlier.
