The representative of Sibur refused to comment. RBC sent a request to the fund "Innopraktika", which is managed by Tikhonov.
Shamalov entered the Forbes rating in 2016, becoming the youngest Russian billionaire (at that time he was 34 years old). He took 64th place with a fortune of $ 1.2 billion. This year, the businessman took 74th line, the magazine estimated his capital at $ 1.3 billion.
Kirill Shamalov is the son of co-owner of the Rossiya bank Nikolai Shamalov. Prior to joining Sibur, Kirill Shamalov worked in Rosoboronexport, Gazprom and Gazprombank. By 2014, LLC Yauza 12, owned by Shamalov (now the company is liquidated) acquired a 17% stake in Sibur from Gennady Timchenko. In an interview with the newspaper Kommersant, Shamalov said he used a loan from Gazprombank to secure the deal, and paid for the stake in Sibur based on the company's market valuation (at that time, more than $ 10 billion). In April 2017, Shamalov reduced the stake in Sibur from 20.9 to 3.9%, selling 17% to Leonid Mikhelson.
