A spokeswoman for Dutch company Heesen Yachts, which manufactures the ship, confirmed to the news agency that Kesaev ordered the MySky and also acquired another yacht called Sky.

An article in the company’s magazine about the oligarch’s daughter, published in the Spring 2021 issue, said that “the Kesaev family is known for Heesen, having commissioned Sky and MySky for the past decade.” .

The MySky sales email, viewed by Portal, was sent from a Merle Wood & Associates email address. The company is headquartered in the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The announcement comes amid Western concerns that Russian tycoons like Kesaev will be able to evade the penalties imposed. The billionaire was sanctioned in April over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
