Russian state-owned firm wants Družba crude oil pipeline

RUSSIAN state-owned firm Rosneft wants to gain control over Transpetrol, the company that controls the Slovak part of the Družba crude oil pipeline, Reuters news agency reported.

Last week a Dutch court ruled that the assets of the Russian firm Yukos are to be untouched, including the 49-percent share package of Transpetrol, the Pravda daily reported.

The Slovak Economy Ministry, which is currently considering regaining control over the privatized Transpetrol, did not react to the Dutch court's ruling.
