VLADIVOSTOK, September 1. /TASS/. The issues related to privatization of Bashneft will be solved in a timely manner, CEO of Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft Igor Sechin told reporters.

On August 16, Natalia Timakova, Press Secretary of the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told TASS that he postponed privatization of oil producer Bashneft.
