Nadezhda Varzhina, deputy general director of the Auction House of the Russian Federation: "Khanty-Mansiisky Bank is the largest asset in the region which was realized by the Auction House of the Russian Federation. We prepared the object for the auction, advertised it on the market, and looked for potential buyers. And today’s transaction shows that our efforts were fruitful. As a result of the auction, the region will receive significant revenue to the budget, and additional funds for solving social and other state tasks. Involvement in this process is an additional stimulus for the work of the Auction House of the Russian Federation.
At the same time, it should be noted that if it had not been for the amendments made by the Federal law of 06.12.2011 № 401-FZ, and the decree of the Russian government of 03.03.2012 №178, the regional treasury would have received these funds almost two weeks earlier".
