When is Trotsenko full of assets?
Apparently, he managed to agree with the Moldovan authorities that it was he who would get control - only such agreements can be legal in nature? As practice shows, the question of legality is far from always at the forefront of Trotsenko’s actions.
As already mentioned, Novaport managed to take over as many as 16 regional airports, including very “fat” assets: Novosibirsk Tolmachevo and Kaliningrad Khrabrovo. It is believed that far from all of them went to Trotsenko legally.
One of the latest acquisitions of the oligarch was the right to modernize and manage the airport in Irkutsk. There Trotsenko managed to skip such "mastodons" as the "Airports of the Regions" by Viktor Vekselberg and "Basel Aero" Oleg Deripaska.
Initially, these structures along with Novaport participated in the competitive process, but suddenly the Irkutsk authorities decided to refuse the competition altogether. Like, we will modernize the airport ourselves, but it will help us in this ... Novaport Trotsenko.
Nobody understood such a sharp somersault - rumors spread that Trotsenko had simply brought someone who needed to, not wanting to lose Vekselberg and Deripaska in a fair fight.
The Federal Antimonopoly Service also did not understand this situation: in July 2019, the department demanded to break the agreement on modernizing the airport with Trotsenko’s structures. The reason is just that the investor was chosen outside of the competitive procedures.
But the agreement seems to be still valid: the FAS was also fed so that they wouldn’t beat hands, but only threatened with a finger?
Ears of Igor Ivanovich
In general, the story is extremely muddy, and one of the key versions is the pressure that the omnipotent Igor Sechin, who is called the direct patron of Roman Trotsenko, could have exerted pressure on the Irkutsk authorities and the FAS.
Trotsenko was an adviser to the president of Rosneft and, according to rumors, even his right hand. They say that a run over the assets of Dmitry Kamenshchik several years ago in an attempt to "grab" his airport at Domodedovo was connected precisely with Sechin's interests.
