How Russia sold its oil jewel: without saying who bought it

How Russia sold its oil jewel: without saying who bought it


By Katya Golubkova, Dmitry Zhdannikov and Stephen Jewkes | MOSCOW/LONDON/MILAN
More than a month after Russia announced one of its biggest privatizations since the 1990s, selling a 19.5 percent stake in its giant oil company Rosneft, it still isn't possible to determine from public records the full identities of those who bought it.

The stake was sold for 10.2 billion euros to a Singapore investment vehicle that Rosneft said was a 50/50 joint venture between Qatar and the Swiss oil trading firm Glencore.

Unveiling the deal at a televised meeting with Rosneft's boss Igor Sechin on Dec. 7, President Vladimir Putin called it a sign of international faith in Russia, despite U.S. and EU financial sanctions on Russian firms including Rosneft.

"It is the largest privatization deal, the largest sale and acquisition in the global oil and gas sector in 2016," Putin said.

Putin casts an adoring glance at our new Secretary of State.

3. The Steele Dossier has a deeply similar mention.

19% rather than 19.5. Rounding error, or brokerage fee.

Can we start talking about likely confirmations in that file? How much circumstantial evidence does it take?

6. Yes, the MI6 guy

Who is now running for his life.

I believe Trumps 180 on NATO with Theresa May came after she let him know they have the real goods from Steele.
