Rosneft Denies Role in Ruble’s Rout After Record Bond Sale

Updated on

The head of OAO Rosneft, Russia’s largest oil producer, denied the company’s bond sale last week spurred the ruble’s collapse to a record low.

In the wake of the record 625-billion ruble bond issue, speculation has built that Rosneft will use the proceeds to help repay U.S. dollars to foreign creditors, contributing to a decline in the currency in the past week. The company must repay a loan of almost $7 billion by Sunday.
