Transneft was aware of the risk of losses from the deal with Sberbank, which caused litigation between the companies. The calculation was provided by the bank itself, without explaining either its essence or the speculative nature of the transaction, Transneft notes.
The dispute was caused by the offer of the pipe company to become a shareholder of the pipeline company. The latter called that idea "hysterical" and accused the opponent of data distortion. Rosneft invented the term "transport frenzy" in return.
