Ukraine watchdog to review Vimpelcom-Kyivstar merger

KYEV, April 22 (BestGrowthStock) – Ukraine’s anti-monopoly regulator
will review its earlier decision to approve a merger of Russia’s
Vimpelcom (VIP.N: ) with Ukraine’s Kyivstar to consider new
circumstances, the regulator said on Thursday.
The merger is part of a peace deal between Norway’s Telenor
(TEL.OL: ) and Russia’s Alfa-Group which last year agreed to merge
their holdings in the telecoms operators in a new New-York
listed company, Vimpelcom Ltd. [ID:nLDE63K0IY]
