USSR Owned Bulgartabac, Russia Might Want It Back - Report
Bulgarian cigarette maker company, Bulgartabac, used to be owned by the USSR as part of World War II reparations.
That became clear in an interview of the head of the Economic Department of the administration of the Russian President, Vladimir Kozin, Pari Daily reported.
The Russian government intends to restore its ownership over that and many other properties outside Russia, Kozin explained.
In his words, the government is investigating if Bulgartabac used to belong to Russia. If it was illegally taken from the USSR, there will be a procedure to take it back.
"We are convinced that Bulgartabac used to be ours. Bulgaria thinks that thing have passed long ago. We have documents", Kozin said.
Russia's initiative for taking back companies USSR used to own started few years ago, when the federation started investigating foreign companies for Russian shares.

WHY ARE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ARROGANT?
"Exactly! So shut up and do not pretend you know....!"
TO YOUR INFORMATION ...THIS AS A PUBLIC FORUM AND EVERYBODY WHO
WISHESTO AIR HIS/HER OPINION IS MORE THAN FREE TO DO SO.
I did not say that Russua ought to sue BG as I do not know details about this case.
You were the ONE,who started this topic and I JUST aired my opinion,that if Bulgartabak were owned by USSR,
than probably Russia as a successor of USSR would have had a claim.
Russia the successor of USSR? LOL and what about all countries from Estonia to Turkmenistan?
It should be split accordingly, but only after Russia settles all of it's debts to Bulgarian producers made during the end of 80's and beginning of 1990's when Bulgaria was ripped off in the most barbaric manner.
I do not know what you mean by saying:" Russia do not recognise any claims by
other states for property of USSR abroad and on the territory of USSR"?
The sentence does not make sense.
IEXUSE ME I DID NOT STUDY RUSSIA'S STATE LAW...I studied German
Grundgesets and USA Contract,Criminal ,Wills &TRUSTS a.s.o.
As far as I know Russia inherited all legal obligations of USSR to the International commuity.
I drew a paralel to FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY (BRD),which after the WWII
took over all legal claims of foreign entities and PAID MILLIONS FOR RESTITUTION
TO THE ISRAELI STATE or other European states.
And what the Bolsheviki have to do with Bulgartabak?
I do not know if they paid any restitution to the companies,who had had propety
The fact that I studied Law does NOT make me an expert in the LAW OF EVERY
resipsaloquitur - RECEIPT ,
you are wasting your time and money getting the education abroad !
The USSR was a country of 15 states joined Russia on their free will or annexed by force in course of the history . Every of the states had its goverment , relative structures and contributed a lot to the USSR budget . The problem is that Russia , as the former USSR successor , does not recognize ANY claims of other states for the USSR property located not only abroad but in Russia as well ...
Hence , each of other 14 states has a right to claim its share of the tobacco company . If it works , the countries like France , Germany , Belgium and UK might also reclaim the property to have been nationalized by communists after 1917 in Russia ...
