Kazakhstan's Model Is the Best Bet for Ukraine

Kazakhstan Model

Talks in Minsk meant to establish a roadmap to peace in Ukraine have, sadly, led to little else but a grim handshake between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Petro Poroshenko. Somewhat more positively though, Ukraine, Russia and the EU will hold talks today on the supply of Russian gas. Indeed, the trade connections between the East and West are in many ways central to Ukraine's crisis, which first began over Kiev's decision to sign the EU-Ukraine association agreement. As European Commission spokesperson Chantal Hughes noted, it is vital that the EU explain why the controversial association agreement does not threaten Russia's interests. If the EU cannot adequately make its case, the current talks are unlikely to bring any lasting peace to the region.

Branson Banks On £2bn Virgin Money Float

Virgin Bank

Sir Richard Branson is poised to pull the trigger on a stock market listing of Virgin's banking arm that City insiders predict could value it at up to £2bn. Sky News has learnt that directors of Virgin Money are in talks with advisers about announcing an intention to float as soon as early October, as they look to exploit strong current trading and investors' appetite to buy shares in the company.
A final decision about the timing of an initial public offering (IPO) will not be taken for several weeks and it remains a strong possibility that Virgin Money could opt to wait until next year, according to people close to the company. If it does press the button on a listing this year, Virgin Money, which has more than four million customers, would become the third so-called challenger bank to sell shares on the London Stock Exchange this year. One Savings, which does not offer current accounts, listed during the spring, while TSB was spun out of Lloyds Banking Group as part of the bank's state aid settlement with Brussels triggered by its taxpayer bailout in 2008.
