June 01, 2012

Russia’s Federal Property Management Agency proposed that OAO VTB (VTBR), a state-run lender, consider forming joint venture with Russian Post to work in the country’s regions, Kommersant said today, citing a letter from the agency’s acting head Gleb Nikitin.

Another state-run lender, Vnesheconombank, or VEB, was in charge of creating a nationwide bank based on the postal network, but froze the project recently, the newspaper said.
