ST.PETERSBURG (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — When campaigning for the presidency in 2014, Poroshenko vowed to sell Roshen, which is his highest valued asset, but has failed to find a buyer yet.
In May, Bloomberg reported that the Swiss company was willing to buy Roshen for $1 billion while Ukrainian President values it at about $3 billion. According to the media outlet, Nestle was the only potential buyer to express interest in acquiring Roshen.
"These rumors have a ripple effect in the media. Our company’s policy is not to comment on that," Patarnello said.
Commenting on the sanctions against Russia, Nestle Russia chief executive said that "We [business communities] do not believe that this [sanctions] is the right way of doing things. Many other people share this opinion."
