Krasnodar, 18 October 2005: Southern Telecommunications Company (“UTK”) [(RTS: KUBN, KUBNP; OTC USA: STJSY), the principal fixed-line telecommunications provider for Russia’s Southern Federal District, reports today that its Board of Directors has taken a decision to place 04-series  non-convertible interest-bearing  documentary pay-to-bearer bonds with the mandatory centralized custody (Minutes ? 11 ?f 18 October 2005).

The bonds will be issued in the amount of 5 mln and placed by public subscription in the MICEX Stock Section. During the first and the following days of the bond placement the bonds are to be placed at the price of 100 (one hundred) percent of their face value.Expiry date of the 04-series bond placement is one of the following dates that comes first:  a) the 7th business day after the starting day of the bond placement; or b) the date of the placement of the last Bond of the issue.

Under the terms of the Decision of the bond issue, it is assumed that the face value of each 04-series bond will be redeemed consistently by installments within the following deadlines: on the fourth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed partly at 10% of its face value; on the sixth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed partly at 15% of its face value; on the eighth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed partly at 10% of its face value; on the tenth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed partly at 15% of its face value; on the fourteenth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed partly at 25% of its face value;  on the sixteenth coupon payment date each bond is to be redeemed at the remaining 25% of its face value.

The Bond issue is for a total of RUR 5 bln, face value of each bond of the issue is RUR 1,000. The Bond issue provides for 16 coupon periods of 91 days each. The first coupon interest rate will be set during the competition to be held  of the starting day of the bond placement. The interest rates on the second, third and  fourth coupons are equal to the first coupon interest rate. The interest rate on the coupons from 5th to 16th is fixed by the Issuer at 10.0% per annum. The coupon yield is accrued on the unredeemed part of a bond’s nominal value.

Commenting on the decision of the Board of Directors, Georgy Romsky, UTK’s CEO, stated: "UTK" PJSC plans to direct the proceeds from the bond issue to advanced repayment of some bank credits. We expect the credit portfolio weighted average rate to decrease due to the bond placement. These actions will allow to reduce short-term liabilities. As a result, the Company’s liquidity position is expected to strengthen”.
