Interview with Vladimir Yakunin

State-run Russian Railways continues to spin-off its non-core assets. Last year the railway giant sold 15% in its freight business Transcontainer. The head of the company Vladimir Yakunin spoke to RT on upcoming sales.

“Transtelecom provides approximately 30% of the services of telecom infrastructure. From this point of view, we are interested in developing this sector and I cannot exclude the possibility of partial privatization of the company in some future. This year we are going to sell 49% of the shares of Transcontainer. We also consider the possibility of partial selling of the shares of Transcreditbank,” Yakunin said.
