    Russian Onexim Group is selling all its assets in the country following a search in the company's offices, Russian media reported Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov’s Onexim Group is selling all its assets in the country following a search in the company's offices, Russian media reported Monday.

    This decision was made after the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) had conducted searches at Onexim's offices on April 14, the Vedomosti newspaper reported, citing its sources, including a person who is said to have received an offer to buy part of the assets.

    An Onexim spokesperson refused to comment on the issue, according to the media outlet.

    Russian law enforcement officials said the search was part of a tax-related investigation. However, some media outlets linked the search to the alleged pressure put on Prokhorov to sell the RBC media holding (part of Onexim).
