MOSCOW, May 31 (Itar-Tass) - Rosneft has no connection with the accusations brought by investigators against some clients of the Russian Regional Development Bank, an informed Rosneft source told Itar-Tass.
The bank has 20,000 clients. According to the investigation materials, bank clients, but not the bank itself, conducted the operations with money. The investigation materials make it clear, the source noted.
The Vedomosti daily reported on Friday that police suspected that about dlrs 900 million were brought from Russia through the Russian Regional Development Bank under false import contracts. All the operations that are under suspicion of law-enforcement authorities were carried out from September 2011 to March 2012.
In the autumn last year, Rosneft decided to set up a new bank based on the RRDB belonging to the company. The new bank, aside from investment management, is expected to have an insurance company and a department for commodity contracts trading. Yelena Titova is appointed to head the new bank. Formerly, she worked at Morgan Stanley.
