Russian businessman, the owner of the company “don tobacco” Ivan Savvidi has offered to buy Greek private TV station Alpha TV, reports Ekathimerini.
According to the portal, he had already made an offer to buy the owner of TV channel Dmitry Contaminants. Savvidi became one of four candidates who could not get the TV license at a recent auction, announced by the government.
Savvidi has promised that in case of purchase of the TV channel it will not change the staff. He stressed that he did not intend to cooperate with the winners of the auction.
At the end of August it became known that the “Group Agrokom” Savvidi is negotiating with the company “Artemida-don” on the purchase of the eponymous chain of grocery stores in the Rostov region.
