Key financial and operational results
Anatoly UFIMKIN, CEO: In general, we have met the targets and plans for the year. In 2005, we completed a large-scale reorganization plan that enabled us to operate as a truly single unit where all lines of business are joined together — fixed-line and mobile communications, data and new services. Today, it is our mobile and data transmission businesses that are pushing the companys growth. We will continue our efforts in these business areas in 2006.
