hi all,

   Rye Brook, NY--May 14, 1997--MCI today announced that it has been
   chosen by Rostelecom, the international telecommunications operator of
   Russia, to provide the largest Internet access connection ever
   installed to Russia. The connection is equivalent to transferring
   approximately 500 pages of text every second.
    Rostelecom is planning to provide access for the first stage of its
   Internet Project through MCI. The purpose of the project is to provide
   Internet services to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and individual
   users in Russia.
    Greg Libertiny, MCI area director, CIS and the Baltic Republics,
   said, "MCI is pleased to participate in this strategic initiative
   which will further increase the range of services available to
   consumers and businesses in Russia. This Internet project will not
   only advance the telecommunications infrastructure in Russia, it will
   also lead to strategic opportunities in the educational and commercial
   sectors of the country."
   Vladislav Vasin, first vice president of Rostelecom, said "The
   provision of Internet access through the Denmark-Russia, ITUR and RJK
   fiber optic cables allows for the first time the closing and
   completion of the world's Internet ring. This year, Rostelecom and MCI
   will install four (2 megabit) E-1 circuits to MCI's 622 megabit
   Internet backbone via the TAT 12 and 13, Denmark-Russia One Moscow
   cable systems. We will also install with MCI two E-1 circuits to the
   MCI backbone via the Columbus II and ITUR Moscow cables. In 1998,
   Rostelecom and MCI will install two E-1 circuits via the Pacific Ocean
   RJK cable to Khabarovsk in the Eastern part of Russia, completing the
   world Internet ring."
    MCI operates the fastest and largest Internet network in the world,
   with superior overall network capacity on a 622 mbps (OC-12) backbone.
   MCI has 77 countries connected to its internetMCI backbone.
    Russia has an estimated 21,940 Internet web sites and 220,000
   connections to the Internet according to the ITU's World
   Telecommunications Development Report 1996/7. The report also
   estimates that there are 1.77 personal computers per 100 inhabitants
    In addition to internetMCI connections, MCI offers a broad range of
   services in Russia including ISDN International Direct Dialing, "Home
   Direct" Calling (MCI WorldPhone), collect calling with
   Russian-speaking MCI operators, debit calling cards and international
   private lines.
   AO Rostelecom is the primary international telecommunications carrier
   of the Russian Federation. Headquartered in Moscow, the company
   provides services to 210 countries. Services include international
   voice, telegraph services, data transmission services, video services,
   leased lines, transit services, radio and TV transmission and wireless
   services. The services are provided both by AO Rostelecom directly and
   by a number of private companies with Rostelecom participation.
   Revenue for 1996 was more than $2 billion U.S. During 1996, the
   world's longest digital microwave link was completed. TSL connects the
   Eastern part of Russia with the Western part, across 12 time zones and
   with links through the Ukraine with Italy and Turkey.
    MCI, headquartered in Washington, D.C., provides a full range of
   integrated communication services to more than 20 million customers.
   Credited with opening up the U.S. long distance market for
   competition, MCI is now leading the charge to bring competition to the
   $100 billion local market, offering American consumers for the first
   time the freedom to choose their local carrier. With 1996 revenue of
   more than $18.5 billion, MCI is one of the largest and fastest growing
   telecommunication companies in the world. On November 3, 1996, MCI
   announced a definitive agreement to merge with BT to form Concert, the
   world's first global communications company.
