The Kremlin wall, towers and cathedrals are reflected on a nameboard of state-owned oil company Rosneft's headquarters, Moscow, Thursday, Dec. 23, 2004. President Vladimir Putin on Thursday strongly defended the purchase of Yukos oil assets by a state-owned company, saying the state was protecting its interests in moving to get control of the one of the biggest production facilities in Russia.
