The confectionery factory, which belongs to the ex-president of Ukraine Poroshenko, was nationalized in Russia

The court in Lypetsk, Russia, decided to nationalize the confectionery factory Roshen, which belongs to the former president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and his son Oleksiy. The propaganda publication TASS writes about it.

The shares of Oleg Kazakov, general director of the confectionery company, in the authorized capital of the trading company “Roshen” were also given to the income of Russia. He and the Poroshenkos were banned from conducting any activity on the territory of Russia, Nastoyastchee vremya writes.

However, the court’s decision can still be appealed.

When Petro Poroshenko became the president of Ukraine in 2014, he promised to sell the business to the Lipetsk factory, but he never did it.

In the spring of 2017, the Investigative Committee of Russia seized the accounts of the Ukrainian ex-president’s factory in a fraud case. Production there stopped, and about 700 employees were laid off.
