The Basmanny District Court of Moscow has extended the freezing of assets belonging to the Roshen corporation's Lipetsk confectionery factory until June 13.

The press service of Roshen announced this in comments to Ukrainian News Agency.

"As expected, the Basmanny District Court of Moscow has extended the arrest of LKF Roshen's assets until June 13, 2017, at the request of the Investigative Committee of Russia," the press service quoted the Lipetsk confectionery factory's General Director Oleh Kazakov as saying.

Fourteen real estate, including a warehouse for finished goods, four workshops, an auxiliary building, and seven land plots with a total area of more than 700,000 square meters, were frozen.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Investigative Committee of Russia recently launched a criminal case against the Lipetsk confectionery factory on suspicion of illegally claiming RUB 180 million in value-added-tax refunds from the Russian state budget.

According to investigators, the factory sent forged documents relating to work involving construction of the confectionery factory worth more than RUB 1 billion, which was allegedly performed in 2012, to the Interregional Inspectorate of the Federal Tax Service of Russia for the Lipetsk region in the period of 2012-2013 and applied for VAT refunds totaling more than RUB 180 million.

The corporation announced in 2014 that RUB 2.8 billion had been frozen in its accounts in Russia and announced in April 2015 that assets belonging to the Lipetsk confectionery factory had been frozen.

In January this year, the Roshen corporation announced that it had decided to stop production at the Lipetsk confectionery factory and that complete mothballing of its production facilities was scheduled for April.

The corporation said that production at this factory had fallen three-fold since 2013: it produced 132,000 tons of goods in 2013, 50,500 tons in 2015, and 40,000 tons in 2016.

The Roshen corporation owns the Kyiv, and Kremenchuk confectioneries, two confectioneries in Vinnytsia, and the Mariupol confectionery (which its shareholders decided to liquidate in April 2015). The corporation also owns the Lipetsk-based Likonf confectionery factory (Russia), the UAB Roshen confectionery factory (Klaipeda, Lithuania), and the Bonbonetti Choco factory (Hungary).
