MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s finance ministry would like to make Transneft <TRNF_p.MM>, Russian Railways, Aeroflot <AFLT.MM>, Rosseti <RSTI.MM> and Rushydro <HYDR.MM> part of the 2020-2022 national privatisation programme, a ministry official said on Wednesday.

Russia’s finance ministry would like the government’s stakes in these companies to be reduced to 50% plus one share, Deputy Finance Minister Alexei Moiseev said.

Pipeline monopoly Transneft and Russian Railways would be privatised no earlier than in 2021, he said.
