Does that give an excuse for nationalization? Let a GOP president try nationalization using the same excuse and not a soul would defend him. The whole situation surrounding Yukos ending up in Rosneft’s hands is far more corrupt than most of what’s happened in the USA thus far.
I think you have learnt Yukos case from MSM. It could have been bought by any other company not only Rosneft. The problem is a few private players could risk to bid considering how fast the company was losing value with all it’s troubles.
