Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier on Tuesday said he had met the heads of Sistema and Rosneft, expressing hope that both could reach an out-of-court settlement.

A Russian court ruled on Aug. 23 that Sistema should pay more than 136 billion roubles ($2.4 billion) to Rosneft in a dispute over oil producer Bashneft (BANE.MM).
