Sechin's ex-wife heads Federation of Equestrian Sport
Head of Rosneft Igor Sechin's former wife Marina Sechina has been elected President of the Russian Federation of Equestrian Sport.
According to the Federation's press service, Vice President of the Russian Federation of Equestrian Sport Vladimir Beletsky had previously aspired to this position, but later withdrew his candidacy. At the moment, he heads the junior sports school Molodost Moskvy (Youth of Moscow) and is a member of the core structure of the Russian national team in show jumping.
The Federation's press service also added that Marina Sechina submitted her candidacy on November 2, promising to bring equestrian sports in Russia to a new level.
It should be added that Marina Sechina currently heads a large industrial holding company consisting of agricultural, energy, and construction companies.
Let us recall that Rosneft Head Igor Sechin divorced his wife back in 2011, when he was deputy prime minister. According to a person close to the ex-spouses, Marina Sechina is "very efficient, and was actively engaged in business back in the 1990's."
This year it has been reported about several new business projects implemented by Marina. These include meat production and plans for the completion of Kutuzovskaya Milya (Kutuzov's Mile) elite residential complex in Moscow. It is worth noting that it is due to this elite construction that Sergey Polonsky is being prosecuted.
