Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder wants to leave the supervisory board of the Russian oil company Rosneft. Schröder, who is the head of the Rosneft supervisory board, said it was impossible for him to extend his mandate on the board, the group said on Friday. No further details were given.
It is also currently unclear whether Schröder is in favor of a decision by the EU Parliament that a large majority had spoken out in favor of sanctions against the former chancellor if he did not give up his involvement with Russian energy companies. In addition, the Budget Committee of the Bundestag decided on Thursday to remove the SPD politician’s office as a former head of government. On the other hand, Schröder is examining legal steps, as the “Spiegel” reports.
