Turkish PM blames extremists for anti-government… 03/06/2013 13:21 CET
Turkey’s football fans have put their normal rivalries to one side and joined forces in supporting the ant-government protests in Istanbul.
Supporters of the “big three”, Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray have led the way in forgetting their long established feuds.
Their weekly battles with police after matches are seen by many anti-government protesters as invaluable experience.
Several fans talked to euronews.
“If the main issue is the nation all other things are mere details. As my friends said we compete on the field. You can win or lose cups but the state of the nation is more important. If we don’t come together today when will we ?”
“Our fight is on the field. We are trying to show everyone that if we come together we are strong. We want to show the prime minister nobody can beat us. We are the Turkish Nation!” said a rival supporter.
The fans quickly swapped football chants to call for Turkey’s prime minister to quit.
They may see such unity as positive but government supporters view it as the solidarity of hooligans.

The results reflect Rosneft’s $55 billion acquisition of TNK-BP, which added about 9 million tons of oil to the company’s production output.According to Rosneft president Igor Sechin, Rosneft will produce 210-215 million tons of oil in 2013. Gas extraction will reach 50 billion cubic meters, refined oil will reach 95 million tons, which will yield a revenue of $160 billion. In 2012, Rosneft increased oil production by 2.7 percent compared to the previous year.Rosneft’s Krasnoyarsk oil field led the production output boost, producing 6.907 million tons of oil, up 24.8 percent from 2012.Yuganskneftegaz, a fully-integrated subsidiary of Rosneft, upped production to 21.863 million tons between January and April, the same time period it cut production costs by 1 percent.In total, Rosneft subsidiaries produced 44.363 tons of oil during the first four months of 2013, which is up 21.7% from the same period last year.Gregory Birge, co-director of Investkafe’s analytical department, and Rosneft management peg the benefit of the TNK-BP acquisition at an estimated $15 billion, which offsets Rosneft’s poor Q1 profit earnings and increased debt load.“The acquisition of TNK-BP is very positive for the shareholders of Rosneft,” Birge told Investkafe.ruMixed Q1 resultsOn April 30th, the night before the markets closed for Russia’s nine day spring holidays Rosneft quietly released their Q1 earnings.Profit results were poor having declined 14 percent after taxes and expenses.

The currency started its negative trend at the beginning of the Russian holidays, peaked on May 10, and has dropped 0.26% against the dollar to 31.31 on New York’s exchange floor Monday. However, the plan could backfire with a serious depreciation of the Russian rouble, since most of capital financing is executed in dollars, while sales are tendered in roubles.
