Dominique Strauss-Kahn has joined the supervisory
board of the bank owned by Russia's largest oil company, Rosneft, the
bank said Monday, two years after Strauss-Kahn resigned as head of
the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The 64-year-old Frenchman was appointed one of the 11 board members of the Russian Regional Development Bank, a subsidiary of the state oil company, a bank spokeswoman said.
Strauss-Kahn resigned from the IMF in 2011 after a New York hotel maid accused him of rape. He denied the charges, which were later dropped, and he has since settled a civil suit filed by his accusor.
The charges, however, derailed his ambitions to run as the Socialist presidential candidate in last year's elections in France.
