Shuvalov: Rosneft and Bashneft in talks with government
Potential buyers of Rosneft and Bashneft shares are already in talks with the Russian government, the First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said.
"There are two deals we’re first of all concerned about - Rosneft and Bashneft. As you know the Rosneft deal is very advantageous to us if it happens as it means funds will be raised via Rosneftegaz, since those are budget revenues. As far as Bashneft is concerned potential bidders are already in talks with the government," TASS cited Shuvalov as saying.
