TNK businessman Viktor Vekselberg "still upset" with BP


One of the Russian investors in the TNK-BP joint venture has told the BBC he is still upset with BP.

Speaking to the BBC's Tanya Beckett, Viktor Vekselberg indicated he and his partners would be willing to sell their stakes in the oil venture.

The comments follow a ruling from a Swedish arbitration panel last month, which upheld a court injunction on an Arctic exploration deal that BP had signed with Russian state-owned oil firm Rosneft.

The panel agreed that the new deal broke promises BP had made to its Russian partners - including Mr Vekselberg - when they first established the TNK-BP joint venture.
