The Kremlin wall, towers and cathedrals are reflected on a nameboard of state-owned oil company Rosneft's headquarters, Moscow, Thursday, Dec. 23, 2004. President Vladimir Putin on Thursday strongly defended the purchase of Yukos oil assets by a state-owned company, saying the state was protecting its interests in moving to get control of the one of the biggest production facilities in Russia. In an apparently secret deal, the state-owned Rosneft oil company bought BaikalFinansGroup, the obscure company that purchased Yukos' most important production unit in an auction Sunday. The Yuganskneftegaz subsidiary was sold for US$9.3 billion (euro7 billion), half of what foreign auditors say it was worth.
