Russian President Vladimir Putin attends a session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in Saint Petersburg, Russia, June 4, 2021. Sputnik/Vladimir Smirnov/Kremlin via REUTERSPresident Vladimir Putin has said Russia would be ready to hand over cyber criminals to the United States if Washington did the same for Moscow and the two powers reached an agreement to that effect. Putin also praised Biden for having shown "professionalism" when the United States and Russia agreed this year to extend the New START nuclear arms control treaty. That issue is in the spotlight after a cyber attack disrupted the North American and Australian operations of meatpacker JBS USA. Asked if Russia would be prepared to find and prosecute cyber criminals, Putin said Russia's behaviour here would depend on formal agreements being reached by Moscow and Washington.

Analysts had estimated a loss of 10.4 million pounds, according to Refinitiv Eikon data. Naked said its strong performance has continued in the new fiscal year, and estimated an investment of 40-50 million pounds in new customers. Majestic Wine, spun off from Naked Wines in 2019, has also seen record online sales in the pandemic.

A woman waves a French flag from a window in Saint-Mande, near Paris, France, May 5 2020. Scor (SCOR.PA) boss Denis Kessler’s offensive against ex-bidder Covea has delivered a similarly crushing result. Shares in the $6 billion Paris-listed insurer rose 6% on Friday after it declared total victory over its one-time foe and largest shareholder. Covea also agreed not to buy any new Scor shares for 7 years, back all draft resolutions submitted by the board, and take a chunk of Scor’s Irish life insurance business for $1 billion. Although vindicating Kessler, Scor’s underperforming shares remain roughly a third below Covea’s offer price.
