Turks Raise Investment Stakes

Akfen Gayrimenkul Yatirim Ortakligi, a Turkish real estate investment trust, raised its stake to 95 percent from 50 percent each in two Netherlands-based companies that invest in hotels and real estate projects in Russia.

Akfen GYO bought an additional 45 percent stake each in Russian Hotel Investment BV and Russian Property Investment for 4.35 million euros ($6.3 million) from Kasa Investments, Akfen said in a statement to the Istanbul Stock Exchange last week.


… 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.
