Schroeder does not like Merkel's interests
In a conversation with the journalists of leading German publications, Merkel also said that she was not going to do business after she had finished fulfilling her obligations to the state.
As it became known, Rosneft itself proposed the position on the board of directors of Rosneft to the predecessor of Merkel.

Ex-Chancellor in turn, not paying attention to the criticism of many German politicians, his candidacy puts forward confidently. In addition to Schroeder, six more candidates are applying for a high post in Rosneft, among them the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak and the head of Rosneft Igor Sechin. The Board of Directors will be approved at the general meeting on September 29, 2017.

Schroeder, appointed in July last year as the head of the managing board of Nord Stream 2 AG (implementing the project of creating a gas pipeline from Russia to Europe "Nord Stream -2"), defends its business interests in this matter. He is going to continue to assist the Russian energy industry in its integration into the world economy. According to the influential politician, Rosneft, as one of the world's largest oil and gas companies, has significant interests in his country.
