April 26, RosUkrEnergo finally revealed its beneficial owners in a move aimed at countering mounting international concern about its ownership.

The Swiss-registered trading company, which won billion-dollar contracts to supply gas to Ukraine and other European countries earlier this year, named Dmytro Firtash and Ivan Fursin, two Ukrainian businessmen, as the owners of a 50 per cent stake. The other 50 per cent is held by Gazprom, the Russian energy group, whose shareholding was publicly known.

Dmytro Firtash, the 40-year-old Ukrainian owning 45 per cent of RosUkrEnergo, could be the world's most secretive billionaire, FT.com informed.

He has never given a published interview. Until now, he has never had his name and photograph published together. But his name often appears in Ukrainian and Russian media, which had frequently linked him to RosUkrEnergo and to two other gas traders, Eural Trans Gas and Highrock Holdings, which are no longer active.
