MOSCOW, November 27. /TASS/. Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin said in an interview with Austrian daily Die Presse that he and his company have nothing to do with Moscow’s decisions regarding Ukraine.
“Neither Rosneft, nor I have anything to do with that. It is ridiculous to even think that someone could pressure the president,” Sechin said when asked whether he participated in making decisions in Russia regarding actions in Ukraine.
The positions of Russia and Western nations on the Ukrainian developments differ radically. Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the intra-Ukrainian crisis, but the West accuses Moscow of participation in clashes in Ukraine’s war-torn south-east and has subjected Russia to sanctions.
