Comment on investment chain
Voronezh Agro Holding cultivates agricultural products through several subsidiaries. It was a subsidiary of “Rusgrain Holding" before it was acquired by Myronivskyj Hliboprodukt (MHP) in 2013. In 2015, MHP swapped its grain growing assets held by VoronezhAgro for Agrokultura's 60000 ha assets in the Lviv, Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk regions of Ukraine (see #1047). There is another company called "Agrovoronezh" - I could not find out if the two are the same.

There is another company called "Agrovoronezh" - I could not find out if this one and the primary of this deal are the same. For "Agrovoronezh", some details on land acquisition can be found on the web: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/article/Comparative-Economic-Studies/131051852.html ; http://blogs.helsinki.fi/lgranber/files/2013/02/Russia%E2%80%99s-new-Agricultural-Operators.pdf
