Indeed, we relaxed a little because we don’t need money, and the ministries all sit on their even small shares in companies, and everyone wants to manage them
- said Siluanov.
According to Siluanov, the government must once again compile a list of state assets in which the Russian state does not need to remain.
The list of investments that are not decisive is not key for our country, I mean, maybe, oil and gas or the banking sector
- specified Siluanov.
It should be noted that earlier Siluanov said that Russian Railways, Aeroflot, ALROSA and Channel One will not fall into the new privatization plan for 2020-2022. In addition, the Deputy Prime Minister studied the proposals of the Ministry of Economic Development for the specified three-year period and discussed them with interested departments.
According to preliminary data, the state-owned packages of Roshydro, Sovcomflot, Transneft, Rostelecom, Rossetei and OZK (United Grain Company) fall into the draft new privatization program.
We remind you that the previous three-year privatization plan (2017-2019) is coming to an end. It provided for the privatization of 477 JSCs and 298 FSUEs. The plan is implemented by 41% in relation to federal state unitary enterprises and by 59% in relation to joint-stock companies. The plan still in effect stipulates that it is planned to terminate the participation of the Russian state in the authorized capital of joint-stock companies: Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port, United Grain Company, Prioksky Non-Ferrous Metals Plant and Makhachkala Commercial Sea Port.
