MOSCOW, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Russian oil major Rosneft has asked Russia's anti-monopoly body for permission to purchase up to 100 percent of Bashneft, a company spokesman said on Friday.

"We have asked the anti-monopoly body for permission to purchase 100 percent of Bashneft because that automatically gives us the right to purchase any minority stake," the spokesman said.
