“Yevgeny Morozov is well-known to MSK-IX’s clients and partners. He has the professional experience and knowledge of the telecom industry needed to maintain the company’s leading positions and carry the best team on the market to new goals,” Sergei Bochkaryov, CEO of Rostelecom Data Centers.
“We are grateful to Yelena Voronina for her contribution to the development of the internet industry in Russia for more than 25 years. Under her management, MSK-IX has come a long way, from a research project in the early stages of Runet’s development to a high-tech company, one of the world’s leading Internet eXchanges. I am very happy that Yelena Voronina is staying on board. She will continue to use her knowledge and expertise for further progress,” Alexei Platonov, Director of MSK-IX.

He knows MSK-IX’s corporate culture and the company well from the inside, which makes him a perfect candidate for the position of Director General of MSK-IX,” Yelena Voronina commented.
