ROSNEFT: HELP $40 BLN
Dmitry Medvedev has given an interview to the Vedomosti newspaper on its 15th anniversary
Question: Can the outlandish request by Rosneft to finance its debt of 1.5 trillion roubles be met?
Dmitry Medvedev: This figure only looks imposing, but everything doesn't have to be done in one year. I recently held a meeting on Rosneft's investment programme: the company needs to maintain its production levels, because Rosneft is a major source of tax revenue. As such, we should help it maintain its level of investment. We are now considering specific variables and types of support.
