The highest governing body of the Organization is the Board. Each Intersputnik member-country has its representative on the Board. Each representative has one vote regardless of the country’s share in the Share Capital. Representatives have equal rights. Sessions of the Board are held at least once a year.

The Board seeks to make decisions unanimously.

If this is not achieved, decisions of the Board are deemed to have been approved if voted for by at least two thirds of the attending and voting Intersputnik Members. Approved decisions are binding on all members of the Organization.

The Board is competent to:

Make decisions on the Organization’s general policy and long-term goals

Ensure that the Organization’s activity complies with the purposes and principles of the UN Charter

Review reports of the Chairperson of the Operations Committee and the Director General
