Richest Russian Lisin Sees No Domestic Blue Chips Worth Buying
“I don’t think there’s a blue chip” worth the risk at the moment, Lisin told reporters in Moscow today.

Capital flight is increasing and raising funds is becoming a bigger challenge for companies, Lisin said.
Novolipetsk, or NLMK, fell 6.7 percent to 61.40 rubles at 1:46 p.m. in Moscow, the second-biggest loser in the Micex Index of 30 stocks.
