The security service established that the ultimate beneficiaries of the company are Russian businessmen involved in the financing of the so-called “L/DPR”. This was reported by the press service of the SBU.
And one of them even belongs to the inner circle of the President of Russia and is a sponsor of the election campaign of the United Russia party. In addition, he builds housing for employees of the FSB and the Russian armed forces.
To avoid international sanctions and supply goods to the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, the company’s management rebranded the trademark. However, thanks to the reaction of the SBU, this enterprise was arrested.
By a court decision, assets worth more than UAH 2 billion were arrested: 100% of corporate rights in the form of authorized capital for more than UAH 437 million, movable and immovable property of the enterprise with an estimated value of UAH 1.5 billion, and nine bank accounts, where there are a total of more than 104 million hryvnia.
This was done within the framework of criminal proceedings under the following articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine: Part 2 of Art. 110-2 (financing of actions committed with the aim of forcibly changing or overthrowing the constitutional order or seizing state power, changing the boundaries of the territory or state border of Ukraine) and Part 2 of Art. 191 (appropriation, embezzlement or possession of property by abuse of official position).
By a court decision, the seized property is transferred to the management of the National Agency of Ukraine for Identification, Tracing and Asset Management (ARMA).
