A media company owned by Kremlin-friendly oligarch Alisher Usmanov has splashed out $1.5 billion to gain full control of Russia’s most popular social network, VKontakte, bringing an end to a months-long dispute that saw the original investors sue each other in court. London-listed Mail.Ru Group said in a statement Tuesday Sept. 16, 2014 that it now owns the whole of VKontakte following its purchase of a 48 percent stake from investment fund United Capital Partners.
