LUKoil remains on track to continue talks with the Polish government on privatization of the Polish oil refinery Rafineria Gdanska. A source in LUKoil said in an interview with an RBC correspondent that the company did not withdraw its participation in privatizing the Polish oil refinery and continued negotiations with Polish authorities.
As reported earlier, LUKoil and its British partner Rotch Energy filed a joint application for purchasing the Polish company's shares in summer 2002. However, Rotch Energy officially undid the agreement with LUKoil in early October 2002.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
