Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov’s Onexim Group plans to offer to buy Alisher Usmanov’s Kommersant publishing house, which runs the country’s oldest business daily, Chief Executive Officer Dmitry Razumov said today by phone.

“I have no plans to sell Kommersant,” Usmanov said through his press office. “There have been no concrete talks with Mikhail Prokhorov. I look what’s been published on this matter as a good joke.”
