MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Rosneft and Bashneft oil and gas companies, the ALROSA group of diamond mining companies, VTB bank, as well as the Sovcomflot maritime petroleum and liquefied gas shipping company, are among the companies to be partially privatized.
Russia is due to sell 19.5 percent of Rosneft shares before the end of the year.
"VTB Group has received absolutely no complaints on the part of law enforcement agencies with respect to the privatization of Bashneft," the bank said.
Ulyukayev is under investigation for allegedly receiving $2 million for a positive appraisal that allowed Russian energy company Rosneft to buy the state's shares of Bashneft oil company, the Russian Investigative Committee said earlier Tuesday.
"We also did not take part in any investigative actions, for us this night's events came as news to us as it did to everyone else," the bank added.
