No anti-trust concerns over TNK-BP deal: Russia government
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's government has no objections to Rosneft's (ROSN.MM: Quote) deal to buy TNK-BP TNBP.MM on anti-trust grounds, Interfax reported the country's economy Minister Andrei Belousov saying on Tuesday.
Rosneft on Monday tightened its grip on Russia's oil industry with a $55 billion deal to buy TNK-BP that also makes Britain's BP (BP.L: Quote) a one-fifth shareholder in the state-controlled company.
