MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russia’s Prosecutor’s Office and Investigative Committee (IC) will check whether Ukrainian businessman Igor Kolomoisky has a stake in the Evraz steel and mining holding, Izvestiya daily said on Tuesday.
Kolomoisky’s stake in the company will be arrested, the daily said. "The request to check the connection between Kolomoisky and Evraz was sent to Prosecutor General Yury Chaika and Investigative Commitee head Alexander Bastyrkin by first deputy chairman of State Duma’s Committee on Nationalities Issues Valery Rashkin and deputy chairman of Committee of Public Associations and Religious Organizations Sergey Obukhov," Izvestiya reported.
"If the fact of Kolomoisky’s stake in the Russian company is confirmed, Evraz shares may be added to Ukrainian tycoon’s assets already arrested in Russia - office building in Moscow and Tavria recreation complex in Crimea," the daily said.The tycoon became a shareholder in Evraz in 2008, when he sold several steel in mining companies to the holding. "The deal cost more than $1 billion. Apart from that, Kolomoisky got 4,195,000 Evraz shares," the daily said.
At the end of December last year, Russia’s Federal Bailiff Service (FBS) found the money of Privatbank belonging Kolomoisky. "The bailiffs found cash resources worth 191 million 840 thousand Ukrainian hryvnias or more than 665 million Russian rubles (about $13 million) in a period from November 24 to December 5. All the cash belonging to Privatbank has been arrested," the Federal Bailiff Service said.
Russia has initiated criminal proceedings against Kolomoyskyi on charges of organization of murders; the use of banned means and methods of warfare; abductions and also for putting up obstacles to journalists’ work. He has been arrested in absentia and put on the international wanted list.
