The former son-in-law of Mikhail Mishustin says goodbye to his assets. Share of Alexander Udodov in OOO Pin-Up. RU” moved to Clear-Center JSC. At the same time, the company “Pin-Up. Ru owned the Fonbet bookmaker, which at the height of the pandemic was included in the list of the backbone enterprises of the country. Also share in LLC “Bookmaker’s office” Favorit “ moved to JSC “Triple Vee”. It is possible that these transactions were formal, but in reality Udodov remains the real beneficiary of the business.
It is noteworthy that the businessman also got rid of his share in Solaris Promo Production LLC. Dmitry Dziuba, the owner of the Eurasian Pipeline Consortium, bought his shares. His consortium cooperates with Transneft, on whose contracts he has already earned 23 billion rubles. Alexander Udodov was also a board member of the Eurasian Pipeline Consortium.
Mushrooms, restaurants, land and houses
When Mikhail Mishustin became the head of the government of the Russian Federation, businessman Alexander Udodov attracted public attention. Apparently, they have known each other for a long time. Together they play for the same hockey club in the suburbs. Only with time did it become clear that Mishustin and Udodov were also united by a family connection. Alexander Udodov was the husband of the Prime Minister’s sister Natalya Stenina. The businessman has always been involved in large projects. So, he was a member of the board of the Eurasian Pipeline Consortium. This company was included in the list of the largest private companies according to Forbes in 2019. In the summer of 2017, Udodov launched Mushroom Rainbow. He planned to grow mushrooms in greenhouses in the Kursk region. And in the Krasnodar Territory, a businessman built a balneological resort worth 130 million rubles. In addition, it was Alexander Udodov who was called the owner of the shopping gallery “Yakimanka, 26”.
Natalya Stenina has always remained in the shadows. She worked at Aeroflot, and then became one of the founders of the NP for the operation and development of engineering infrastructure facilities Nikolo-Spasskoe. Already in 2007, together with Alexander Udodov, she established a charitable foundation to support the development of education, charity and sports. And in 2008–2009, Udodov handed over to Stenina a residential building with an area of 740 square meters and a land plot of 25 acres in the village of Slavkovo, Istra district. Later, this property appeared in Rosreestr as the property of the Russian Federation.
In 2011, the media called Alexander Udodov “unemployed, but a lot of decisive in the tax sphere.” At the same time, the story of a criminal case was mentioned about an attempt by ES-Kontraktstroy LLC to illegally receive more than 1.8 billion rubles as a VAT refund. Then searches were carried out in Udodov’s house, but the matter did not develop further. Maybe the reason is in connection with Mikhail Mishustin, who for many years headed the Federal Tax Service of Russia? Be that as it may, Alexander Udodov cannot be called unemployed. In addition to these companies, he also had a restaurant business, which he shared with Natalya Stenina and Arkady Novikov. So, together they were co-owners of Garantiya LLC and Nikoliya LLC, which are registered on Tverskoy Boulevard in Moscow. Both companies own the Nedalniy Vostok trademark. A restaurant with this name is popular in the capital, but it is preferred by the elite. Companies associated with the restaurant could not boast of financial success.
