Rashnikov - the last hope of Alexander Chigirinsky improve their financial affairs. The main project of his group "Snegiri" - "Snegiri Eco" at the Minsk highway - idle today, the developer ran out of money corny. $ 127 million, he would get for a share of Evolution Tower project would be a good tool for business. Thus Chygrynskiy Jr. suddenly changed his mind to arrest belonging Rashnikovu offshore. Now the brother of fugitive developer sights on property respected metallurgists.
S & T Equity, the parent company of the group "Snegiri" Alexander Chigirinsky, November 24 withdrew from the court of the city of Limassol (Cyprus), the requirement to attach property Snapbox Holdings Ltd. Beneficiaries Snapbox - the main owner Viktor Rashnikov MMK and Nader Nader.
