Russian businessman Sergey Adoniev became the owner of 31.67% of the shares of A-Property Development, which controls the world’s largest supplier of anthracite, Sibanthracite. As RBC drew attention, this follows from the data of the Unified State Register of Legal Entities.
Another 31.66% of the securities of the A-Property Development enterprise is owned by Alexander Isaev , the remaining 36.67% belong to Albert Avdolyan, a former member of the Forbes list of the richest businessmen in Russia and Adoniev’s longtime partner.
Previously, a controlling stake in Sibanthracite was at the disposal of billionaire Dmitry Bosov . He committed suicide in May 2020. Bosov’s widow Katerina planned to get 77% of the company’s shares and sued other heirs of the billionaire. In the spring of 2021, Bosov’s share was divided into eight equal parts – parents, five children and a widow received 10.82% each.
