Restaurateur, who confessed to transferring bribes in case of Shakro Molodoy, becomes partner of Capital Group project
Oleg Sheykhametov acquired 25% of Skytower Group LLC which is building a residential complex in the south-east of Moscow.
Entrepreneur Oleg Sheykhametov, better known as the founder and former co-owner of the Yakitoria network, since January 2018, is the holder of a 25% stake in Skytower Group LLC. This is reported by RBC with reference to the data of the Unified State Register of Legal Entities.
The publication specifies that the remaining 75% of the company belongs to the structures of Pavel Tyo, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Capital Group. It is also known that the Skytower Group is building a residential complex on the 2nd Institutskaya Street in the south-east of Moscow. As Pavel Tyo previously told journalists, Capital Group plans to implement this building project together with the PIK group.
Representative of Capital Group Elizaveta Lilishentseva commented to RBC on the new partner of the company, calling it a standard scheme for the project financing. She also confirmed the information on the participation in the project of the PIK group. The press service of the latter refused to comment.
The project on the 2nd Institutskaya Street involves the construction of 300 square meters of housing, 80 of which will be transferred to the city as part of the renovation program. Pavel Tyo’s company won the land plot of the area of 8.7 hectares, at auction in June 2017. Implementing the project, according to analysts, will require about 19 billion rubles (~331 million USD).
It is to be recalled that in September 2017, Kommersant wrote that Sheykhametov is one of the entrepreneurs who acted as intermediaries in transferring bribes to high-ranking officials of the capital's department of the Investigative Committee from thief in law Zakhar Kalashov, known as Shakro Young or Shakro Molodoy. In particular, Sheykhametov himself, according to the newspaper, turn himself to the FSB, saying that he had given money to the law-enforcers for mitigating the charges against Shakro's assistant Andrey Kochuykov (Italyanets). After the FSB investigator initiated a criminal case under Art. 291 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-giving), and then absolved him of responsibility, Sheykhametov returned to Europe, where, according to some sources, he still lives.
The situation on international markets is worsening because of trade wars and protectionist policies. However, Dmitry Medvedev noted that the Government expects the expansion of the Russian economy until 2024.
