MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. The UK's leaving the EU (Brexit) will not affect terms or progress in privatization of the Russian state assets, head of the Russian Accounts Chamber Tatiana Golikova said on the fringes of United Russia's congress on Sunday.
"It will not affect unitary companies or major state companies," she said.
Earlier, head of VTB Andrei Kostin expressed a similar opinion, saying the privatization is most affected by the sanctions.
The Russian government plans selling shares in Rosneft, Bashneft, VTB, Alrosa, and Sovkomflot. Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said privatization of Rosneft, Bashneft and Alrosa should be completed before the year end.
