BLOOMBERG - Apr 7 - United Capital Partners, which owns 48% of VKontakte's holding company VK.com, sued Pavel Durov, the founder of the Russian social network, over control of a separate mobile-messaging service he developed. The fund claimed that VK.com is the proper owner of the messaging service, called Telegram. Durov says he used his own money and assets to develop Telegram, which is run by a nonprofit entity he helped set up in Berlin.
