These are limited liability companies "Poltava-Capital", "Kharkiv-Capital" and "Tatneft-AZS-Ukraine", which own gas stations and other immovable and movable property.

In April 2022, these companies were arrested as part of criminal proceedings, and in July of the same year – by a court decision, they were transferred to the management of Asset Recovery and Management Agency. Part of the property was seized back in November 2020, and it was transferred to ARMA management in March 2023.

In general, in addition to movable and immovable property (land plots, etc.), the decision affects over 100 gas stations, up to a dozen oil depots, as well as the gas pumping stations and autogas stations.

The previous head of ARMA, Dmytro Zhoravovych, said that the agency was looking for a manager for the seized assets of Sakhalinske LLC, Ukrnaftoburinnia PrJSC, and Tatneft gas stations. According to him, ARMA together with the Cabinet of Ministers developed a mechanism that allows for a simplified procedure to transfer seized assets to the management of state-owned enterprises.

The relevant order of the Cabinet of Ministers of August 15, 2023 No. 716-r "Some issues of asset management, which have been seized in criminal proceedings, in exceptional cases" appeared on the Government portal.
