SMM International has named its new CEO, which was announced by the company on Wednesday, according to a report from the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.
The post was posted on Twitter on Wednesday and did not provide any additional details.
The announcement comes after the SMM had been unable to find the SMMs founder and the company’s founder.
RIA Novo reported earlier on Wednesday that the SMF was the company that was being investigated for its alleged role in the 2014 abduction of Ukrainian journalist Anna Politkovskaya.
According to RIA, SMM was founded in 1993 and has since expanded its activities to the international market.
It was named the “leader in information technology and telecommunications” by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in 2002.
In a statement to Business Insider, the SMG denied any wrongdoing.
The company said it was “not aware of any allegations” against its founder and chairman, according the statement.
“As a company, SMG has never had any responsibility for the actions of any of our employees,” it said.
The company said that SMM would “investigate and respond to the investigation” of the case, adding that it would “do so transparently.”
