Alexey Ulyukaev’s new offshore secrets
The ex-Minister of Economic Development had offshores in the names of immediate family members.
Information surfaced that there is another offshore company associated with the arrested Minister Alexey Ulyukaev. The findings have been posted by the Anti-corruption fund. Truly speaking, the Cyprus offshore is in the name of Alexey Ulyukaev’s father - Valentin Ulyukaev, 85. A statement said that Delcon Nominees Ltd. bought a share of Cyprus offshore Alderbrook Ltd. (or possibly the whole company). The transaction was signed in May 2011 and the document names Valentin Ulyukaev as the Buyer.
There is hardly any information on Delcon. The offshore was established in September 2009, in the British Virgin Islands. It has 5 subsidiaries and is positioning itself as a holding company.
Their online business card says that ILS World provides advisory and consulting services. Interestingly, in 2009 another offshore belonging to Ulyukaev family had just ceased to exist. It had been established in British Virgin Islands too and was called Ronnieville Ltd.
Initially, in November 2004, it was established in the name of Ulyukaev’s 21-year-old son. And then, in 2006, his wife Yulia Hryapina became the legal owner. The information came from the Mossack Fonseca papers.
However, there is no information as to what those foreign companies served for.
Earlier, the former Minister was accused of soliciting a $2 million bribe allegedly for approving the takeover of oil company Bashneft by Rosneft. Initially, the Government and the President opposed the deal, but it was signed after all.
Alexey Ulyukaev has been formally charged under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code. He was under house arrest, and then it was reported that Vladimir Putin dismissed him from his ministerial post due to loss of confidence.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) had seen plenty of scandals throughout its history. In the end of 2017, it ceased financing of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) on suspicion of misuse of funds by its management. However, the IOC couldn’t even think that international drug trafficker Gafur Rakhimov, member of the criminal ‘Brothers’ Circle’ put on the OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, is going to take charge of it soon. Furthermore, Rakhimov has contributed greatly to the selection of Sochi the place of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
