Svyazinvest Swap Questions

The government may reconsider coefficients used in the reorganization of its Svyazinvest holding, Vedomosti reported Wednesday.

The government seeks to re-evaluate the terms under which stakes in Svyazinvest’s regional units are swapped for shares in Rostelecom as part of a merger to be completed by March 2011, the newspaper reported, citing government documents it obtained.

The share-swap terms were set “openly and in accordance with the law,” said Igor Pshenichnikov, a spokesman for Svyazinvest. While a review is possible, “it would make no sense,” he said. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
