Russia has sold a share of oil giant Rosneft for 10.5 billion euros. Between them commodities trader Glencore and Qatar's sovereign wealth fund now have a 19.5% stake.
The surprise deal is said to be the largest privatisation in the oil and gas sesctor this year.
BP already owns 19.75% but Moscow will keep the controlling stake.
