In the documents, the party says that Aleksandr Sergeevich Bukreev owns “a total of nine residential buildings, one of which is in Portugal”.

According to the Russian daily Kommersant, Aleksandr Sergeevich Bukreev, declared in 2018 income of around €2.2 million

Regarding the Ananyev family, the party says that Alexei and Daria Ananyev “own, among other assets, luxury real estate based in Portugal”.

BE mentions documentation submitted to the Meshchansky Court, following the divorce between Alexei and Daria, whose shares, according to the party, show that both have real estate in Portuguese territory.

In 2017, Forbes magazine estimated that the net worth of Alexei and Dmitri Ananyev, tech entrepreneurs who founded Russian bank Promsvyazbank, was €1.2 billion and €1.5 billion, respectively.

In both cases, Bloco de Esquerda also questions whether the investments made to acquire these properties took place under the golden visa programme.

“We are concerned, given the current invasion of Ukraine and in light of the impunity of the financial powers, that economic and political interests with links to the current regime of Vladimir Putin and the United Russia party hold real estate in Portugal, and in particular, that such foreign investment has been made under the golden visas programme”, states the party.

Private planes

BE addressed a third question to the Minister of Infrastructure, in which he asks “what steps are being taken to find out how many planes and small planes are registered with ANAC by Russian owners”.

BE also questioned the government over allegations made on Twitter by hacker Rui Pinto about private flights made by Russian oligarchs from Portugal after the imposition of European Union (EU) sanctions on February 27, which include the closure of Member States' airspace to Russian airlines and flights.

Rui Pinto mentioned a trip made on March 7, bound for Moscow and in which one of the routes involved a private jet with Portuguese registration CS-DOF, Bombardier Challenger 650 model, which is registered with the ANAC, and has an “alleged link to Dmitri Mazepin, one of the Russian oligarchs targeted by EU sanctions”.

Following this publication, ANAC announced that it was carrying out an investigation to confirm the information reported by the Portuguese hacker.
