MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. The Kremlin has refused to comment on media reports that Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin allegedly sent Russian President Vladimir Putin a letter warning him about possible petroleum shortages in the country.
"We traditionally do not say anything about official correspondence," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.
RBC daily earlier reported that Sechin asked Putin to introduce additional discounts for the oil refining industry to compensate for the negative effect of the tax maneuver. The country can otherwise face petroleum shortages by 2017, RBC said citing Sechin’s letter, and large oil companies may have to freeze their modernization projects.
