The ex-Minister of economic development of Russia Alexei Ulyukayev declined to answer the question of whether he is ready to meet with the head of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin in court, told RIA Novosti in court.

Entering the room, the speaker shook hands with the journalists and explained his tardiness by the actions of the Federal penitentiary service: «I’m a man — when I come and go» — but the question about a possible meeting with Sechin did not respond.

«The question of the court — every citizen should fulfill their constitutional duties,» — said instead lawyer Victoria Burkovskaya.

It was assumed that the head of «Rosneft» Igor Sechin will speak at today’s meeting as a key witness for the prosecution, but whether this will happen is unclear. As stated by RIA Novosti press-Secretary of the company Mikhail Leontyev, a summons to appear in court Sechin did not get, though in Zamoskvoretsky court reported that such a subpoena was sent.

According to the defense, the speaker was convinced that the bag was lying wine. The former Minister said that he regarded the incident as a provocation.

The speaker was the first in the modern history of Russia the Federal Minister arrested for corruption. He faces up to 15 years in prison.
