 “Today the AHR realized another state share package which the Russian Federation is selling according to a decision to leave the shareholders of companies with state participation amounting to “less than a controlling package”. The sale at open auctions ensures that the state can effectively leave low-revenue projects and transfer the assets to interested investors.
Until recently, Kurgan Airport was on the verge of bankruptcy, and now, with the transfer to a new owner, it has gained real opportunities not only to rectify its financial state, but to develop its main form of activity – broadening the coverage of flights and increasing the passenger flow,” Olga Borisovna Sokolova, the deputy general director of the AHR, commented on the auction.
