MOSCOW, April 6 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) granted a request of Rostelecom on the purchase of RETN CAPITAL LTD, one of the world’s largest backbone networks, it is said in a statement posted on the FAS website on Friday.
“FAS considered the request of Rostelecom on the acquisition of the rights enabling it to determine the conditions of business activity by RetnNet (Russian office of the company) that it gets as a result of acquisition of 100 percent of RETN CAPITAL LTD shares by Rostelecom and decided to grant this request,” the antimonopoly authority said.
