Report: Deripaska in talks on selling stake in Russian Machines
MOSCOW, Jun 4 (PRIME) -- Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska is in talks to sell a part of his stake in Russian Machines, which controls carmaker GAZ Group, to minority investors under a plan to end sanctions on the company, Bloomberg reported on June 2 citing sources familiar with the situation.
Deripaska is in talks with former Magna International chief Siegfried Wolf, the sources told Bloomberg. No decision has been made yet.

On April 6, the U.S. imposed sanctions against 38 Russian tycoons, officials and companies including Deripaska.
