(Reuters) – Igor Sechin, the head of Russian oil major Rosneft, said on Saturday that BP (NYSE:BP) still remains its largest private shareholder despite having announced its departure in February after Moscow sent troops into Ukraine.

Speaking at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum, Sechin, a long-standing ally of President Vladimir Putin, said BP also still owns stakes in large-scale Rosneft projects including Taas Yuriakh, Kharampurneftegaz and Yermak Neftegaz.

He said dividends accruing to BP would be transferred to special accounts, but did not elaborate further.
