  1. My family name, given name, residence address, and/or other personal data has changed. What should I do?

Answer: The unavailability of the correct details of a shareholder to the Company, its Registrar, or the Depository (if the shares are kept on a securities account) is the main reason why a shareholder does not receive dividends and voting ballots.

In order to update your details, you need to update your Questionnaire of a Registered Person. To do so, you should file a request at the place where your shares are registered (the Registrar or Depository).

If your shares are registered with the Shareholder Register of RusHydro, you can learn about the list of documents required for updating the Questionnaire from the Registrar's website at https://www.vtbreg.com/shareholder/operations/operations-109/.

Please note that in order to update your Questionnaire, it is not enough to submit copies of documents to RusHydro. You should submit such documents to the Registrar of your Depository in person or through your Authorized Representative.
