Crimea eyes energy firm privatisation

Companies

Moscow - Crimea may sell Ukrainian energy firm Chornomornaftohaz to a Russian company “like Gazprom” once the regional authorities take control of it, Interfax news agency quoted a Crimean official as saying on Friday.

“After nationalisation of the company we would openly take a decision - if a large investor, like Gazprom or others emerges - to carry out (privatisation),” Rustam Temirgaliev, Crimea's first deputy prime minister, said.
