MOSCOW, July 6 (UPI) -- The head of Russian aluminum producer Rusal is giving his $3 million bonus to 120 Rusal employees, the company said.

Rusal said the giveaway was a one-time deal for the staff, the BBC reported Saturday. The number of shares the $3 million will purchase amounts to 0.05 percent of the total shares in issue, the report said.

The company -- one of the world's largest aluminum producers -- employs 72,000 workers in 19 countries.
