Support The Moscow Times!

TNK-BP Deal Approved

The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service gave the go-ahead to Rosneft to buy 100 percent of TNK-BP but with conditions, the watchdog said, Interfax reported.

The unified company will have two months from the day the deal is completed to provide the agency with information about regions where its fuel market share is greater than 50 percent. And a year after that information is provided, it will have to sell some of its filling stations in those regions.

… 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.
