In Finland, bailiffs confiscated the real estate of scientist, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Russian businessman Boris Aleshin, who is associated with the military industry, the YLE media corporation reported on Tuesday.
In June, Aleshin, adviser to the head of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), was included in the EU sanctions list due to Russia’s war against Ukraine. The confiscation of his property was carried out in September on the initiative of the Finnish Foreign Ministry. According to the bailiff’s decision, two neighboring plots of real estate near the town of Longvik, in the Kirkkonummi community in the south of the country, were confiscated from Aleshin. The cost of the objects is more than 2.5 million euros.
Aleshin submitted an application for approval for the purchase of land in Finland, in accordance with local legislation, to the Finnish Ministry of Defense in the summer of 2020. The application stated that the businessman spent his holidays in these places, where he liked to mainly fish, writes YLE.
The Russian United Aircraft Corporation unites all the largest aircraft manufacturing enterprises in Russia, including MiG and Sukhoi, which produce military aircraft. Boris Aleshin is also the chairman of the board of directors of the Kronstadt company, which produces Orion military drones.
