Now RT & I conducts an appraisal of operating activities, updates the strategies of O1 Properties and NPFs, said in a joint statement of the companies.
In it the head of the Russian representation of the company was named for the first time. "Vedomosti" found several more important facts about the mysterious collector of assets of Boris Mintz and the founder of "Donstroi" Maxim Blazhko - several of his objects also went to RT & I. Market participants called this company a friendly "Rosneft" and GC "Region".
RT & I was founded in Cyprus in 2007, but "from the very beginning of the activity has an official representation in Russia." The company names the sphere of its activity development and real estate.
According to the Cyprus registry, the owner of RT & I is the Russian OOO Biznestrast. The ultimate owners of this company - Pavel Vaschenko (90%) and Valery Mikhailov (10%), follows from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities.
Vashchenko, according to SPARK in 2011, was the owner of 25% LLC Region portfolio investments. In December 2010, Portfolio Investments, controlled by Rosneft, was sold to the Region Group. The general director of the Criminal Code, Alexei Abolyayev, called among the new owners of the Criminal Code the chairman of the Board of Directors of the "Region" Sergei Sudarikov and the head of the department of operations with shares of Pavel Vashchenko, who received 25% of Portfolio Investments.

The main riddle
Valery Aleksandrovich Mikhailov, according to SPARK data as of December 2013, was the head of OOO "The Palace of Grand Duke Mikhail Mikhailovich Romanov". In 2011, it bought a palace built in St. Petersburg for the grandson of Nicholas I. A year later the palace complex was put up for sale, and in April 2014 it was acquired by Region Leasing. Six months later, the owner of the building was OOO RN-trading, affiliated with Rosneft.
A man with the same name, last name and patronymic as the final co-owner of RT & I Valery Mikhailov, provided money for an operational experiment during which the head of Rosneft Igor Sechin donated $ 2 million to the Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev. The former minister was found guilty of receiving this bribe and sentenced to eight years in prison.
The fact that the person who provided the money, called Valery Alexandrovich Mikhailov, wrote to RBC referring to the testimony of FSB general Oleg Feoktistov "loaned" to the state company. He said that he asked for money to be transferred to the minister from a friend of the businessman, the BBC reported referring to the transcript of the court session.
A person close to one of the parties to the transaction confirmed to Vedomosti that it was the same person.
"We can not confirm or deny the identification of VA Mikhailov and VA Mikhailov from the materials of the court case [co-owner of RT & I] VA Mikhailov," the representative of RT & I said. "People with such a name and initials in the country more than 70 000, this has nothing to do with our business, therefore we did not engage in such identification and we are not going to do it," he said.
The representative of Rosneft declined to comment. Ulyukaev's lawyer, Timofei Gridnev, could not comment on whether Mikhailov was the same.
The Russian representative office of RT & I is headed by Alexey Mazin, 43, says in a joint statement. Mazin studied, started his career and worked in Kazakhstan for a long time. He graduated from the Kazakh State Academy of Management (bachelor's in finance), he worked at Freight One and Ernst & Young offices in Alma-Ata in different years, then worked as a financial manager at Fabric Venturers Group of Companies (UK).

In the years 2005-2007. Mazin was the head of the Sky City project and a member of the board of the development investment company Sibacademinvest, which belonged to the banker Igor Kim.
