The Russians organized a criminal scheme together with Ukrainian partners to continue their activities in Ukraine.
The National Agency for Tracing and Asset Management found the assets of a Ukrainian chain of stores, whose owners are involved in criminal proceedings due to connections with Russian partners. This was reported by the ARMA press service.
“When developing a request from a law enforcement agency, ARMA employees discovered and searched the assets of persons involved in criminal proceedings who carried out economic activities in cooperation with the Russian Federation and illegal authority created in the temporarily occupied territory,” the statement said.
The main defendants in the case have Russian citizenship; they, together with partners in Ukraine, organized a criminal scheme to continue their activities in Ukraine, bypassing the imposed sanctions and keeping the business.
The sanctioned legal entity, whose beneficial owners are citizens of the Russian Federation, carried out its activities in Ukraine under the guise of other legal entities, thus avoiding regulatory measures.
In total, ARMA employees discovered 15 units of motor vehicles, nine residential and eight non-residential real estate units, eight land plots, and 40 units of intangible assets in Ukraine and abroad. Money in the amount of 900 million Hryvnias and shares in the authorized capital of almost 4 million Hryvnias were also discovered.
The agency forwards the data received to law enforcement agencies to take appropriate measures, namely, seizure and subsequent confiscation.
We remind you that the previous ARMA opened access to the Unified State Register of assets seized in criminal proceedings. It contains approximately 36 thousand records related to properties transferred to the management of the agency.
Last week it became known that ARMA will put up for sale Medvedchuk’s yacht worth 200 million euros.
