It’s official: Facebook raises $200M from Russian investor

After months of rumors about whether Facebook is raising more money — or even if it needs the money to pay the bills — the company has officially confirmed that it has taken a new round of funding.

Russian investor Digital Sky Technologies is putting in $200 million for 1.96 percent of the company, at a $10 billion valuation.

DST is also planning to purchase up to $100 million in current and former employee stock, the details of which will Facebook will announce this summer, more or less confirming what we heard two weeks ago.
