Golikova’s stepson’s company earned 9.7 billion rubles in a year on government contracts
Nanolek is a biopharmaceutical company supplying 25% of vaccines for the Russian vaccination schedule. Until recently, the president of the company was Vladimir Khristenko, the son of the former Minister of Industry and Trade Viktor Khristenko and, accordingly, the stepson of his current wife, Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova.
Khristenko Jr. allegedly founded Nanolek, although he bought a stake in the company two years after its foundation. Now the Cypriot offshore NANOLEK HOLDING LIMITED is listed as the founder of the company. Yes, and Khristenko himself is also Cypriot in his own way – he has the citizenship of this country of the European Union.
In 2022, Nanolek earned 9.7 billion rubles on government contracts. In the previous two years, the amounts were three times less, and this was already a noticeable jump – before that, the company received up to 200 million rubles a year from the state.
