Rosneftegaz May Buy Inter RAO Stake

State holding Rosneftegaz may buy a 13.76 percent stake in electricity holding Inter Rao energy group, which the government is seeking to privatize, Vedomosti reported Thursday, citing two sources.

Igor Sechin, who holds the dual roles of chairman of Rosneftegaz and CEO of its oil subsidiary Rosneft, has verbally agreed Olga Dergunova, head of the state property agency, to buy the stake.

Rosneftegaz, which also holds stakes in gas monopoly Gazprom, has held talks with the government since last year to buy stakes in energy and power companies that are put up for privatization.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
