Russia is due to sell 19.5 percent of Rosneft's shares in the second half of 2016. It has been earlier reported that Indian and Chinese investors expressed their enthusiasm.
"Europe, for instance [is interested]. They are interested because this is a good asset, obviously," Ulyukayev said.
Meanwhile, Rosneft's CEO Igor Sechin said that the privatization on a stock exchange in the current environment will be extremely inefficient. In his opinion, it is necessary to find a strategic investor who must be appropriately qualified.
