On July 4, 2007 the State Duma passed a bill giving Gazprom and Transneft the authority to create their own security forces with greater powers than other private security firms. Gennady Gudkov, a deputy in the State Duma who opposed the bill, raised concerns by calling it a “Pandora’s box… This law envisages the creation of corporate armies. If we pass this law, we will all become servants of Gazprom and Transneft.”...

Deputy chief executive Alexander Medvedev announced the company would aim to achieve a market capitalization of $1 trillion dollars “in a period of seven to ten years.” He added: “we’d like to be the most-valued and most-capitalised company in the world.”... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gazprom
