Russian court freezes $3 bln of Sistema assets in Rosneft case

Russian oil giant Rosneft says hit by 'powerful' cyberattack

As a result of the deal, Rosneft will gain 49% stake in Essar Oil, while another 49% will go to Trafigura, a Swiss consortium, and United Capital Partners, a Russian fund.

The top oil producer in Russian Federation said the large-scale attack hit its servers on Tuesday while neighboring Ukraine experienced attacks on some banks and the main airport.

Russia's oil giant Rosneft said Tuesday that it was hit by a large-scale cyberattack on its servers, which has not affected its oil production due to a timely switch to a backup control system.

Sistema lost a third of its market value in May when Rosneft filed its lawsuit against Sistema, which is controlled by Russian oligarch Vladimir Yevtushenkov. USA consulting major Deloitte released a report on Monday that said American energy companies showed "limited strategic appreciation" for cyber-threats.

"The arrest of shares was made following a decision by the Republic of Bashkortostan Arbitration Court as a security in the framework of the legal claim lodged by Rosneft, Bashneft and the Republic of Bashkortostan against Sistema and Sistema-Invest", Sistema said on Monday.

"This situation does not impact operations with MTS shares, and the rights to receive dividends on MTS shares owned by other shareholders", MTS said.

VTB analysts estimated Sistema would only get about 8.5 billion roubles from MTS this year, down from 23 billion in 2016.

Sistema said earlier this year that it was looking to boost its land bank as it expands in farming with a view to listing its agricultural business in the next few years.
