About the AEB

The Association of the European Businesses in the Russian Federation offers its deepest and most sincere condolences on the tragic death of Christophe de Margerie, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Total, in the crash of his private plane yesterday in the Vnukovo Airport in Moscow.

This is a terrible loss for Total and for France. Mr. de Margerie was a talented and charismatic manager, very well-known in France for his great business vision and outspoken views on the geopolitical and economic issues faced by his country. He very much believed in Russia’s potential to remain a strong and strategic partner for Europe.

Our thoughts go to his family and beloved ones as well to the relatives of the other victims of the accident.
