MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. Russia’s Finance Ministry has filed a lawsuit against businessman Vladimir Potanin and the Interros International Investments Limited company to the Moscow commercial court, according to the court’s statement.
Interros International Investments Limited is a subsidiary of Interros holding controlled by Potanin.
The court registered the lawsuit on May 21.
The amount claimed by the lawsuit is $68.2 mln, which includes the initial debt worth $8 mln plus penal sanctions.
An official with the Finance Ministry told TASS that the ministry had filed the lawsuit on behalf of Vnesheconombank (VEB).
