MOSCOW (Reuters) – A Russian judge on Wednesday ordered Igor Sechin, the head of Russian oil major Rosneft, to appear as a witness in trial of ex-economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev. Ulyukayev was dismissed and put under house arrest in November over allegations he extorted a $2 million (£1.5 million) bribe from Rosneft. He denies the charges. The former minister was detained at Rosneft’s Moscow headquarters.
