The Russian holding, the Chinese Internet giant and the Russian Direct Investment Fund conduct negotiations on creation of joint venture in the Russian Federation of the Photo: depositphotos.com the Chinese Internet giant Alibaba discusses the idea of the joint project in online commerce with Mail.Ru Group holding and the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Interfax with reference to the source familiar with a situation reports about it. It is already not the first project concerning which Alibaba Group conducts negotiations with the Russian companies. Representatives of all three parties refuse comments on such enterprise. The CEO of fund Kirill Dmitriyev at a meeting with Vladimir Putin at the end of last year said that RDIF can become the partner of Alibaba in Russia. Both consumers, and her creators will benefit from the new platform, the executive director of VSK group Maxim Tyshchenko is sure: Maxim Tyshchenko the executive director of VSK group "At Mail.Ru Group isn't present such platform, unlike same "Yandex".

Better the markets where a large number of the different companies among themselves competes develop. It gives bigger development, than a big share of one player. But clever cooperation with marketpleysy and with such platform never before harmed anybody". In June media have learned what parallel to Alibaba Group agrees about other joint venture with VTB bank.
