Russian moguls eye up Rover ruins

The future of MG Rover could be decided in Russia following reports that administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers have received approaches from metals mogul Oleg Deripaska and Nikolai Smolenski, owner of sports carmaker TVR. Mr Deripaska – a close friend of the Chelsea football club chairman Roman Abramovich – already owns Ruspromavto, maker of Volga cars, and is said to be keen to expand his business interests in Britain. Yesterday's Mail on Sunday quoted Alexander Yushkevich, deputy chairman of Ruspromavto as saying Mr Deripaska, whose multi-billion dollar fortune is based on his acquisition of Russian Aluminium, was keeping a close eye on developments at Longbridge.
