Chyzh is trying to escape sanctions

One of the oligarch’s companies in Latvia was reregistered on other people.

The Belarusian company Neonafta, which is controlled by the Belarusian oligarch Yury Chyzh, included in the European Union’s black list, has officially stopped its activities in Latvia last week. Belarusian and Russian media call the oligarch a close friend and the “wallet” of Aliaksandr Lukashenka, delfi.lv reports with a reference to firmas.lv.

The enterprise Mamas D from Daugavpils, which produces biofuel and formerly belonged to Neonafta, changed its owners. The new shareholders are two residents of Belarus Dzmitry Aleksin (40%) and Ina Aleksina (40%), who live together in one of the apartments in Minsk. Another co-owner of the company is Aliaksandr Grakhouski (20%), a businessman famous in Daugavpils.

Before 14 December Neonafta owned 80% of the shares of the companies Mamas D and Latgales alus D.
