Which has become exactly the new owner of over 693 million shares of Gazprom offered for sale by Gazprom Gerosgaz Holdings BV and Rosingaz Limited, Sadigov has not said.
"We were not allowed [to participate in the purchase of Gazprom shares], the market suspects that everyone has purchased Rotenberg," said the RBC investor, who requested participation in the transaction.
