MMK Selling Turkish Mill

Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel may sell 49 percent of its Turkish steel mill to help fund iron ore projects in Australia, chief executive Boris Dubrovsky said Wednesday.

The steelmaker, known as MMK, is "in discussions" about the possible sale of the stake in its MMK Metalurji mill with at least three local bidders and may use the proceeds to develop projects in Australia, Dubrovsky said.

MMK is set to complete the acquisition of Flinders Mines for 554 million Australian dollars ($580 million) next month and plans to invest 1 billion Australian dollars to produce 15 million tons of iron ore by 2015.


… 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.
