Andrey Bokarev got another asset of the trader.
Speculation that the assets of oil trader Gunvor, the share in which Gennadiy Timchenko sold Swedish partners a day before the introduction of the US sanctions against the businessman, will stay long under foreign control is confirmed. Following "Kolmar" Gunvor sold control of oil product terminal "Ust-Luga Oil" to the structure of businessman Andrey Bokarev. He began working with Gennadiy Timchenko even before the sanctions, becoming in 2012 the owner of the railway operator "Transoil". But the terminal was the largest deal in the history of this partnership - analysts estimate the share in it at 70 billion roubles.
