The Russian oil company Tatneft may suffer losses of $2m due to military operations in Iraq, the company's official statement says. These losses can be caused by the non-fulfillment of a contract on drilling 33 wells, i.e. by the loss of equipment supplied to Iraq. Tatneft is trying to minimize these losses or avoid them.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his speech dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy, recalled the threats that Russia is currently facing from a number of countries.
