The Board of Directors decided to submit for approval by shareholders at the AGM a finalized draft text of the Annual Report of the Company for 2002, the financial statements, including the profit and loss account (income statement), and profit and loss allocation based on the financial year's results.

The Board of Directors reviewed the recommendations on the amount of dividends to be paid for 2002 on RAO UES shares and the procedure for their payment, and decided to recommend that the Company's shareholders approve the following dividend amounts:

The Board also recommended to approve the form of dividend payment (cash) and the dividend payment period for ordinary and preferred shares (until 1 December 2003).

The Board of Directors approved the form and text of Ballot No. 2 to be used for voting at the AGM of RAO "UES of Russia". This ballot will be cast by shareholders on the issue of the Company's dividend payment for 2002.

The Board reviewed the Basic Principles for performance by members of the Board of Directors and Management Board of RAO "UES of Russia" of transactions in shares in RAO "UES of Russia" and its subsidiaries and dependent companies (SDCs).

Until the Audit Committee is established and its terms of reference are defined, its functions are to be performed by the Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors decided that, until the Audit Committee is set up, the period for prior approval of transactions established by the Basic Principles shall be 25 days.
