Lawyers for the Russian mission have challenged the sale of the building which was put under the hammer on September 12 and sold for €1.4 million.
It was the third consecutive auction held to sell the residential block of the Russian Trade Mission claimed by German businessman Franz Sedelmayer, who demanded around €5 million in compensation from Russia for financial losses he had suffered in St. Petersburg when he attempted to go into business there in the 1990s.
"The Russian side does not recognize as legitimate the conduct of the bailiff service which acted, citing a resolution passed by the Swedish Supreme Court in 2011 in favor of German businessman Franz Sedelmayer. It neither recognizes the legitimacy of the Swedish district court resolution adopted in violation of Russia 's right to its real estate that has a diplomatic status which had earlier been confirmed by the Swedish Foreign Ministry", the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
