The company did not disclose terms of the transaction, but people briefed on the matter said the price was more than $700 million in cash.

The buyer is Oasis Beverages, a Russian brewer and beverages distributor. Backing Oasis is TSG Consumer Partners, an American private equity firm focused on consumer goods, which will take a minority stake.

This honestly looks terrifying and no person really deserves this. The reason the mob is going after Ukraine's Economic Development Party member Vitaly Zhuravsky is he has a history of trying to pass bills that would crack down on anti-government protests. He also sues the press for saying mean things about him.

If we did this with every corrupt politicians we would run out of dumpsters.
