MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian oil firms have not sought financial compensation for planned output cuts under a deal with OPEC, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak is expected to meet oil firms on Wednesday and a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and Russian oil executives is scheduled for Dec. 19.

Peskov also reiterated that the government still expected to receive proceeds from a Rosneft stake sale by Dec. 15, 2016.
