Well, there won't be any Russians.


Russia can forget about its oil interests in Iraq, Washington and London having decided to cut Moscow out of any postwar arrangements in restructuring Iraq's resources, the head of Russian state-run oil firm Zarubezhneft said in an interview yesterday.

"We're clearly going to have to cut our losses on anything we have there and anything we could have had," the company's general manager Nikolai Tokarev told the daily Vremya Novostei.

"The Americans haven't gone into this war intending to share with anyone. It's a war trophy," he said.
