Besides, Rosneft has prolonged from July, 10 till July, 12th term of demands acceptance for purchase of the actions from citizens of Russia, having explained it a great interest of retail investors . But the final price of one action will be declared all this very day on July, 14th, and is quite possible that on a wave of an agiotage it will exceed present estimations in 5,85 - 7,85 dollars. And it means that applicants will receive a smaller share holding and the risks connected with starting inflated price for the money, will be rather serious.
