Sanctioned Russian billionaires under the wing of Azerbaijani oligarch Anar Alizade

The attention of Western investigative journalists was attracted by the situation around the famous Bodrum marina. As you know, Turkish Bodrum Yalikavak is one of the most advanced harbors in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas with a capacity of 450 yachts at sea and 50 on land.

However, over the past year, the Bodrum Marina, owned by the famous Azerbaijani oligarch Anar Alizade (Aliyev), has turned into a safe haven for sanctioned Russian billionaires who are under the radar of Western law enforcement agencies.

According to information, shipbuilders have remotely turned off navigation equipment for some yachts, which allows them to hide under the reliable hood of the Bodrum Yalikavak.
As investigative journalists managed to establish, the yacht of Andrei Melnichenko, the founder of the Eurochem companies, was spotted in Bodrum. Italian law enforcement agencies managed to arrest one of Melnichenko’s yachts in the port of Trieste. However, with the help of Anar Alizadeh, Melnichenko hid his second motor yacht (“A” - Motor Yacht A) in Bodrum.

Anar Alizade immediately doubled the prices for mooring and fuel.

Currently, journalists have picked up the trail of the yacht and Alexey Mordashov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC Severstal. A yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands could often be seen off the coast of Sakhalin. However, since the end of 2022, Mordashov’s yacht was noticed visiting Alizadeh.

It was in Bodrum that journalists discovered the yacht Nirvana, owned by Vladimir Potanin, president of the Interros company.

Recently, Anar Alizadeh has come to the attention of the Turkish intelligence services. At this time, the businessman is under criminal prosecution and accused of fraud.

Companies controlled by the businessman were engaged in falsifying certificates issued for oil exported to European countries. Some time ago, the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) began an investigation into the origin of A. Alizadeh’s financial assets in London.
