VEB Eyes RusHydro Stake

RusHydro boosted nine-month profit 19 percent because of unrepeated finance expenses in the previous year period, the utility said Tuesday on its website.

Net income climbed to 30.6 billion rubles ($1 billion) from 25.6 billion rubles a year earlier. RusHydro had net finance income of 366 million rubles this year, compared with costs of 3.11 billion rubles a year earlier. Revenue fell 34 percent to 197 billion rubles.

Vneshekonombank chief executive Vladimir Dmitriyev said in Davos, Switzerland, late last week that the bank may acquire a 10 percent share in RusHydro. VEB may spend 64 billion rubles to acquire treasury shares in the company.


… 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.
