MOSCOW, July 29 (RAPSI) – The Ninth Commercial Court of Appeals has upheld the recovery of almost 164 million rubles (about $2.6 million at current exchange rate) from the Tavern Taras Bulba restaurant chain owner Yury Beloivan convicted earlier of tax evasion, the court’s records read on Monday.

The businessman appealed against a Moscow Commercial Court’s decision of March 7, 2019. In April the court also ordered to recover from Beloivan and Anastasia Ivanova, the head of the company, 76.4 million rubles (about $1.2 million).

This July, Moscow’s Basmanny District Court passed a 2-year prison sentence on Beloivan as part of the tax evasion case.
