MOSCOW Feb 28 (Reuters) - Russia's richest man, Alisher Usmanov, has sold a 7.4 percent stake in Russian internet group Mail.Ru at the price of $34.25, valuing the stake at around $530 million, the selling shareholder said in a statement on Thursday.
London-listed Mail.Ru said in a filing on Wednesday that a company controlled by Usmanov called Ardoe Finance Ltd will place 15.5 million Mail.Ru global depositary receipts.
