10 years ago today, on September 14, 2007 Russian company MTS purchased 80% of shares of Armenian mobile operator VivaCell.

MTS President Leonid Melamed, VivaCell General Manager Ralph Yirikian and President of Lebanese investment company Fattouche Group Pier Fattouche announced the news on September 14, 2007 in Yerevan.
