Namesake of Timchenko's son sells $4.7m-apartment to namesake of Sechin's daughter

In April 2017, a full namesake of Ivan Timchenko, the son of Gennady Timchenko, sold his Moscow apartment to Inga Karimova, a full namesake of the daughter of Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, Dozhd reported.

The area of ​​the apartment is 200 square meters, and its cost is about $4.7 million. This is one of the four apartments in a building in the Shvedsky Dead End owned by Ivan Timchenko.

The media refers to the building as "the house of Putin's friends", the TV channel highlighted. Rosreestr pointed out that it is home to some big officials, businessmen and state administrators: Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko, Transneft CEO Nikolai Tokarev, and the family of former Communications Minister Leonid Reiman. Other apartments belong to the wife of the ex-finance minister Alexei Kudrin, the former spouses of the VTB board chairman Andrei Kostin and Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, Channel One general director Konstantin Ernst, actress Sati Spivakova and actor Nikolai Karachentsov.

"Why on earth would an oil company look into private condominium conversions? I don’t see how this could be an object of any interest. People buy apartments. We don’t know who those people are and what they have to do with Rosneft performance," said Mikhail Leontiev, a Rosneft spokesman, in a comment.

Dozhd could not reach Timchenko’s Volga Group for a comment for this story.
