08.12.2016 - Meeting of Vladimir Putin with Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Sechin, I would like to congratulate you on the conclusion of a privatisation deal to sell a large stake in our leading oil and gas company Rosneft: 19.5 percent.

In this respect, the timing is very good and the overall value of the deal is significant: 10.5 billion euros. Together with the Bashneft company that you acquired recently, this amounts to $17.5 billion. Even the first by itself is the largest privatisation deal, the largest sell-off and acquisition in the oil and gas sector in the world in the outgoing year 2016.

Answer: We believe that the introduction of this draft is utterly counterproductive.
