Lavrov's son-in-law became owner of the largest pharmaceutical distributor in Russia
Thus, Alexander Vinokurov received a full control on Sintez and Biokom plants.
President of the A1 (investdepartment of Alfa Group), Alexander Vinokurov, the son-in-law of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, has consolidated 100% of SIA International Company, control shares of Sintez and Biokom factories (52 and 75% respectively), as well as 100% of pharmacies Mega Farm. It is reported by the press-service of the distributor.
As RBC reports with reference to the source, there were two stages in sale: in December 2015 Vinokurov consolidated 50% of SIA International and 17% of Sintez.
The family of deceased Igor Rudinsky, who was the founder of the group of companies, announced that they are completely out of business. According to widow Elena, she and her daughters are happy with the terms of the transaction. "The sale of the remaining stake is a logical step. Igor was planning to sell his business during his lifetime and was negotiating with Sasha [Vinokurov], when he worked for TPG,” SIA statement quoted words of widow Elena.
