BP can be a bridge between Russia and the West, Dudley says

BP can play an "important role" as a bridge between the West and Russia, which remains vital for Europe's energy security, CEO Bob Dudley tells shareholders at the company's annual general meeting.

BP, the biggest foreign investor in Russia's oil sector, will continue to seek ways of developing its business there, despite tensions over the crisis in Ukraine, Dudley says.

BP has a 20% stake in Russia's state-owned oil and gas company Rosneft (RNFTF) - which could still be a very good deal for BP in the long term.

    Actually this sounds like a CEO backed into a corner sitting on an investment in the wrong side of history.

    It is a risky thing to predict who is actually on the wrong side of history. Russia has a lot going for its side, both in terms of power and in terms of what is fair.
