"Based on the files of the Ukrainian Security Service corporate rights and the property of 11 enterprises, whose final beneficiaries are state corporations, Rosneft oil company, Rosatom and Gazprom, have been arrested," according to the report released on the SBU’s website.
The corporate rights arrested by the Ukrainian court are roughly worth over 2.1 bln hryvnia in total. Moreover, 46 real estate units owned by them have been arrested, the Ukrainian Security Service added.
