March 16 (Reuters) – Telecoms company Veon (VON.AS), which operates Ukraine’s largest mobile network Kyivstar, on Thursday reported lower annual sales as it continues the process of selling its Russian business.

The group’s total revenue was $3.76 billion in 2022, down 2.4% from a year earlier on a reported basis. The numbers do not include the Russian business that Veon now classifies as “held for sale”.
