KIEV, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine’s anti-monopoly committee said in a statement on Thursday it had granted Azerbaijan’s Bakcell mobile operator permission to go ahead with a deal that may result in its acquisition of the Vodafone Ukraine mobile operator.

Bakcell has been granted permission to buy more than 50% of Netherlands firm Preludium B.V., via which Russian telecommunications firm MTS owns Vodafone Ukraine, Ukraine’s second-largest mobile operator, the statement said.
