MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti) - Crimean bailiffs seized the hotel and recreation complex Tavria belonging to Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky's Privatbank, Izvestia newspaper reported Monday, citing Crimean prosecutors.
"The Crimean Prosecutor’s Office has reviewed the statement of the prosecutor general regarding the possible terrorism financing by Ukrainian politician Ihor Kolomoisky. As a result, the bailiffs seized the immovable property of the health complex Tavria, owned by Privatbank belonging to Kolomoisky," the newspaper reported.
Ukraine’s fourth-richest person, with a $1.8 billion net worth, and Dnipropetrovsk Region governor, Kolomoisky bought the retreat in one of Crimea's most picturesque sites in 2004. Tavria is located in Foros, which also hosts four private residences of the business, political and cultural elite.
The Nautilus complex of apartments in the coastal city of Hurzuf, the construction of which was sponsored by Pivatbank, may also be seized, according to the newspaper.
Privatbank belongs to Kolomoisky's Privat financial group.
In July, Russia's Investigative Committee accused Kolomoisky of sponsoring a number of Ukrainian armed groups and committing crimes against civilians in his country and opened a criminal case against him.
