Russia's Rosneft Chief Executive Igor Sechin said he sees share price at no less than $8.12 per share at possible stake sale by the state, news agencies reported on Thursday.

"The shares will be worth as much as other shareholders had paid for them during similar deals — $8.12 (per share)," TASS agency quoted Sechin as saying.
