The number of buildings associated with the Ukrainian businessman Igor Kolomoisky and his partner Gennady Bogolyubov, which the US Department of Justice wants to confiscate, has increased to three, RIA Novosti reports.
Previously, the department already demanded that the court confiscate two office buildings in Dallas and Louisville, now the ministry wants to take away a building in Cleveland. According to the materials of American lawyers, money withdrawn from the nationalized Ukrainian Privatbank was invested in this property.
“Kolomoisky’s accomplices Mordechai Korf and Uriel Laber have created a network of organizations in Miami to launder and invest stolen funds,” he said at the Justice Department.
It is noted that the partners acquired real estate and business enterprises throughout the country, the cost of which is now estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars.
In May this year, it became known about the investigation of the case in the United States against the Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, who is suspected of money laundering.
The businessman, presumably, has transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to the United States since 2008 through offshore companies. With this money, Kolomoisky bought a 484-room hotel in Cleveland, as well as a 21-story office building and several skyscrapers.
