VTB Capital to Run Tenders

VTB Capital will run the sale of the state's 55 percent stake in the Vanino seaport and 25 percent stake in power generator TGK-5, which are among state assets marked for divestment by the end of next year, the investment bank said Tuesday after signing an agreement with the Federal Agency for State Property Management.

The state's previous attempt to sell the holding in Vanino was blocked in May, when a little-known company bid up the starting price 11 times and then failed to complete the payment, Kommersant reported last month.

Vekselberg, who controls TGK-5, said in October that his IES Holding would bid for the state's stake in the generator.


… 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.
