Czech PPF Buys Agro-Pro

Czech investment group PPF has acquired Russian agricultural company RAV Agro-Pro, owner of 164,500 hectares of agricultural land, it said Wednesday.

PPF, controlled by Czech billionaire Petr Kellner, said it bought 100 percent of the Voronezh-based grain and livestock farmer.

PPF, which also owns banking group Home Credit, which plans to raise about $1 billion in a public share offer in September, did not disclose the financial terms of the deal. Investment fund RP Capital was a co-investor in the deal.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
