“Rosneft, being a first-class oil company and an active market player, the company can manage its problems without support from the state,” he said.
Ulyukayev says that it does not make economic sense to sell 19.5% of the Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft stock under the current circumstances, he told reporters on Saturday.
