Last week, in the Russian mass media there was information that the state can receive a share in the united company of "Norilsk Nickel", UC Rusal and "Metalloinvest" if the such is created. Updating of hearings about education of the raw giant and participation in this process of the state, is obvious, connected with opened thanks to crisis new mechanisms of nationalization of the companies.
The matter is that for buying up of foreign assets, the Russian companies gathered excessively many credits. For example, the debt of "RUSAL" which is owning and actively modernizing NGZ, now makes $17 billion. In order that рефинсировать debts, the companies appealed to the authorities to give out them long money on the underestimated rates.
The mechanism of nationalization is that the largest State Banks of VTB and VEB which gave out the credits can begin converting of debts in an action of the companies, having lowered debt loading of the joint holding. According to such scheme, nationalization of problem financial institutions around the world is carried out now.
Thus, the opened opportunities allow Russian to the authorities to begin reprivatization is mountain - ore mining industry of the country. Chances of successful realization of idea of creation of the raw megacompany with strong influence of the state, are increased by support of this project from metallurgical oligarchs.
If Russians create the mining giant, he will include also the Ukrainian enterprises: Zaporozhye aluminum and Nikolaev aluminous plants. Before arrival of the Russian investors, these enterprises tried to adjust production with higher value added, however the status of raw appendages is accurately fixed in a new format behind them. It is unlikely in it in a case it will be possible to convince the Russian government of need of performance taken on itself during privatization at the beginning of a decade of investment obligations at the Ukrainian enterprises.
