Reuters: VTB has helped Qatar to buy a share in Rosneft


The agency claims that the transaction was confidential. Earlier the bank declared officially that didn't credit and isn't going to credit Qatar fund. Business FM understood the Photo situation: depositphotos.com of VTB could help Qatar to buy a package in Rosneft. Reuters has reported about it, having mentioned that the transaction was confidential. In material of the agency there are two irritants to which the public will surely pay attention. Initially Vladimir Putin demanded that privatization of a package of Rosneft was transparent, and the Russian State Bank shouldn't have given money for her. And there was everything not so. Now slightly stories. Two years ago the state has sold nearly 20% of Rosneft. The package was in common bought by Qatar state investment fund and the Swiss raw trader of Glencore. Money for purchase as it was reported officially, they have taken in the western banks. Then it became known that the part of these shares will be acquired by the new shareholder — Chinese "Huaxin". Hasn't met — "Huaxin" has failed. And then have agreed that Qatar will get almost all package, and debts to the western banks will be satisfied. The final transaction was closed in September, 2018. And now Reuters has reported that VTB has given to Qatar fund money for settling with creditors. If it is simpler, then it turns out that the Russian State Bank as a result and has financed privatization of Rosneft. And she wasn't transparent, journalists directly in heading use a word "confidentially". VTB several times declared officially: the bank didn't credit and isn't going to credit Qatar fund. But we will assume that nine sources to which Reuters refers are right. Plus the official reporting of VTB which concordant it has given hundreds of billions rubles to nonresidents and under time it has coincided with closing of the transaction with Qatar. Concerning public finance. First, at the end of 2016 the Russian budget has received more than 700 billion rubles, and it was quite adequate price of a package in Rosneft. Secondly, participation of the State Bank in this situation doesn't mean a privatization failure. In the capital of Rosneft there was a participant, independent of the Russian state — Qatar. And the Russian money is the credit which it will return to Russia. Nobody knows conditions, but it is hardly an interest-free loan. Now concerning opacity. It not absolutely so. Full opacity — when the unknown beneficiary it is unknown on what money buys a package through a chain of firms, for example from the Cayman Islands. Here nobody hides the beneficiary. The financial scheme really and remained opaque. And this is important in material of the agency. However, it is necessary to make the way to it through a set of the facts, the assumptions, judgments and even mentions of "Ulyukaev's business". To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
