Senior Official Of Energia Space Appointed President
Moscow (RIA Novosti) Jul 31, 2007
Vitaly Lopota, formerly first vice president of the Energia space corporation and its chief designer, has been appointed the company's new president. Earlier, Energia's shareholders voted to dismiss Nikolai Sevastyanov from the post by a 97% majority, and voted 97.5 percent in favor of Lopota, 57. The decision to suspend Sevastyanov's mandate was made in late June by the board of directors of state-controlled Energia, which designs Soyuz piloted spacecraft and Progress booster rockets, launches communications satellites, and operates the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS).
