Senator Kerimov achieves purchase of Vozrozhdenie bank
Russian entrepreneur, who is currently in France under a written undertaking not to leave, is to conclude a deal with brothers Dmitry and Aleksey Ananyev.
Member of the Federation Council Suleyman Kerimov and owners of Vozrozhdenie bank brothers Dmitry and Aleksey Ananyev have agreed on the sale of the credit institution. This is reported by Reuters citing three sources.
The agency’s sources have not disclosed the details of the transaction. A Bonum Capital Fund representative, who may be associated with Kerimov, as well as the Ananyev brothers’ representative have refused to comment.
Earlier, the media citing sources reported on the possible deal between Ananyev and Kerimov. However, it concerned a free transfer of Vozrozhdenie to the senator.
It was assumed that the fate of the deal will be decided on Friday, February 9, but it seemed like a long shot that the Central Bank would approve the deal, Kommersant noted.
It should be added that Suleyman Kerimov is currently in France under a written undertaking not to leave, where he is suspected of tax evasion.
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.
