MOSCOW, November 12. /TASS/. Natalia Potanina filed an appeal to the Moscow City court’s decision stating that the shares of Norilsk Nickel and Interros shall not be divided between her and her ex-husband billionaire Vladimir Potanin, Potanina press service said Thursday.
"A short complaint that was filed by the lawyers of Natalia before receiving the text of the trial court decision was immobilized by the Moscow City Court until November 12, 2015. The full text of the court decision with the justification part was not available for almost 30 days, which exceeds the period the law sets for the preparation of the document almost twice," the statement said.
Natalia Potanina believes that 30% of Norilsk Nickel and Cyprus-based Interros International Investments Ltd should be divided between here and her ex-husband billionaire Vladimir Potanin as a marital property that was accumulated during 30 years of their marriage.
In April, Natalia Potanina filed a relevant lawsuit to the Moscow's Presnensky District Court. The court did not uphold the division of shares.
Russian businessman Vladimir Potanin is one of the major owners of Norilsk Nickel and the president of Interros holding.
In March, Potanin topped the Forbes rating of the richest Russians with the fortune of $14.8 billion. He also ranks 60th on the magazine’s list of world’s richest people. Forbes ranking of the world’s richest people included 85 Russian billionaires.
In late 2014, in an interview with the Russia 24 TV channel Vladimir Potanin confirmed that he had got married for the second time. His new wife’s name is Catherine, and she worked with the entrepreneur.
