Russian Doll

‘We haven’t found that very last ‘Russian Doll’ which would uncover the owner of Domodedovo airport - the largest airport of the country and the object of special importance’, said Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Buksman in Parliament. Ironically, just an hour later the London Stock Exchange’s website revealed that the airport is controlled by DME Limited, an Isle of Man company, whose 100% shareholder is Dmitry Kamenschik.

The information was published in anticipation of the company’s IPO.

In January, after the terrorist attack in an airport lounge, President Medvedev ordered that ‘all decision makers must be brought to justice'. ‘Sometimes we can’t even find the owner of a major airport’, he grumbled four months later.
