In 2015, from a video message from Nogotkov to former colleagues, it became known that he had moved to the United States. In an interview with Forbes Life, the entrepreneur said that he planned to launch in Moscow a “coworking space with multi-functional industrial equipment where people can make unique prototypes and products themselves.” However, in the end, he chose to work on a project in the field of consumer Internet in Silicon Valley.
Last year, in an interview with the Russian Norms! Project, the founder of Svyaznoy said that he made a living by advising Russian entrepreneurs. At the same time, Nogotkov said that 90% of the time he spends on the study of such areas as philosophy, religion and history, as well as on the creation of educational programs based on the knowledge gained.
Marigold then did not rule out that he would return to Moscow. He said that he would still live in Russia, "if there were no Crimea." “Because I, as a Russian, felt and still feel involved in the decisions that were made in the Crimea and the Donbass. And Donbass for me, in principle, is my native land. My great-grandfathers were buried in Mariupol, my relatives lived in Kramatorsk and in Slavyansk during the war. For me, this is just military aggression, which Russia unleashed against a neighboring friendly country. And for me it is emotionally very difficult, because I voluntarily or involuntarily took part in it, ”said the businessman.
