Vedomosti (Russian: Ведомости, IPA: [ˈvʲedəməsʲtʲɪ], lit. "The Record") is a Russian-language business daily published in Moscow.[2] It was previously a joint venture between Dow Jones, the Financial Times[3] and the publishers of The Moscow Times.[4] The Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal sold their stakes in 2015, ahead of a new Russian media ownership law prohibiting foreign enterprises from owning more than 20% of stake in Russian media companies[5] which came into effect in 2016. Sanoma also sold its stake in the paper in 2015; the paper is now owned by Demyan Kudryavtsev, who also owns The Moscow Times, and was previously chief executive of Kommersant.[6]
