Enka Risks Losing $152M in Legal Dispute With City Hall

Turkish construction company Enka could lose real estate near Paveletsky train station worth almost 5 billion rubles ($152 million) in a legal dispute with City Hall.

A Moscow court last week overruled an earlier decision to transfer ownership of two buildings on the Kosmodamiansky Embankment to Enka's subsidiary Moscow-Krasniye Kholmy, Kommersant reported Tuesday.

If the appeal against the court's latest decision is unsuccessful Enka is likely to lose the properties, for which MKK has already paid almost 3 billion rubles.

Lawyer Denis Uzoikin said Enka may fall victim to the hazy wording of contracts signed with the city hall.

He said that in 99 percent of case when a buyer purchases city property it is unclear what assets they will actually get.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
