The Russians aren't coming to the Belfast Telegraph.

As anticipated, the Russian oligarch, Alexander Lebedev has bought the Independent and the Independent on Sunday. So far as I can tell, despite attempts to suggest otherwise by Roy Greenslade and Brian Walker, the Belfast Telegraph was never intended to be part of the deal. So Northern Ireland’s largest daily paper stays in the possession of the Irish company INM.

Walker's been hinting that he 'knows' something might be up.

Truth is, he clearly knows fuck all or he would have spat it out by now.
