UFA, 27 May 2016. /Bashinform News Agency, Ksenia Kalinina/. Bashneft is included in a forecast plan of the federal property privatization. The list of joint stock companies, in which the Russian Federation ceases to have stake in 2014-2016, is supplemented by the position concerning PJSOC "Bashneft".
