The Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin has not received a summons to the court on the case against the former Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev, the company's press secretary Mikhail Leontiev told Interfax.

Emilia Khil, the spokesperson for the Zamoskvoretsky court, told the agency that the subpoena had been sent by registered mail to the Rosneft address. Ulyukaev's lawyer Daridzhan Kveidze had explained earlier that the company's address was in the protocol of Sechin's interrogation under “place of residence”.

Prosecutors and defense lawyers of the ex-minister had asked to interrogate the Rosneft head. The court sent the summons on November 8: to Sechin, as well as to the First Deputy Energy Minister Alexey Teksler, FSB officer Alexander Kalinichenko and Deputy Head of the Economy Ministry’s Corporate Governance Department Ivan Bezmenov.
