13 Feb 2009

Ukraine’s state-owned telecoms operator, Ukrtelecom, may attract a bid from Turkcell reported Sabah. The local paper cited Turkcell CEO Sureyya Ciliv who confirmed Turkcell ‘is interested in every movement’ in the Ukrainian market. Turkcell already holds a controlling interest in Ukranian mobile operator Life. Ukraine’s government revealed earlier this week that it hoped to raise UAH7.5 billion (USD920 million) by selling a 67.79% stake in Ukrtelecom this year.
