In addition, 40 Ukrainian companies from the analyzed list are members of well-known financial-industrial groups or groups of companies. This data is in YouControl.
Earlier, YouControl analysts investigated the presence of "Russian footprint" in Ukrainian companies. Almost 14,000 active Ukrainian enterprises were identified, where at least one citizen or resident of the Russian Federation is among the participants or final beneficiaries.
And what is the Ukrainian fate in Russian business? To clarify this issue, analysts examined data from the Russian state register of legal entities as of December 2021. The liquidated companies were excluded from the list, as well as Russian joint-stock companies and other companies in which there are no records of participants as of April 27, 2022.
Where are Ukrainian companies related to Russian business registered?
In analyzing the ownership structure of Russian organizations, we found links between 273 Ukrainian companies and organizations and 251 Russian companies. Some Ukrainian companies are owned by several Russian companies, and vice versa - several Ukrainian companies are associated with one Russian organization at the same time.
100 companies from the analyzed list are registered in Kyiv, 39 - in the occupied Crimea, more than 20 companies - in Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv regions. In other regions of Ukraine there are from 1 to 11 such organizations. Interestingly, no companies related to Russia were identified in Zakarpattia and Ternopil oblasts.
