Russian tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev has reportedly held talks through representatives with the Greek Development Ministry for the creation of a battery factory in Greece.

Sources told Kathimerini that the plan is for a 200 million-euro investment in the production of high-standard batteries by Innolith, a company majority owned by Rybolovlev.

Kathimerini spoke with Sergey Chernitsyn, advisor to the Russian owner of Skorpios island in the Ionian Sea, who confirmed a visit to the Greek ministry by the Monaco-based billionaire, but offered no further comments about the project under consideration.
