Vadym Novynskyi`s Smart Holding positions its Amstor Retail Group as a commercial real estate management company, which operates 14 shopping centers operating in 8 cities in central and eastern Ukraine. As noted, the total area of the shopping centers - more than 190 thousand square meters, and the group cooperates with such networks as Zolotyi Vik, Lotоs, Kari, Brocard, Silpo, and Comfy. "The company plans to regain control over 11 shopping centers in Donetsk region after the conflict in the East of Ukraine is settled," stated at the website of Smart Holding.
As reported earlier, Novynskyi joined Amstor in 2009 in the context of the overloading of network with debts.

In April 2015, Smart Holding noted that the debt of Amstor network to banks at that time was about USD 160 million and to suppliers - about UAH 300-350 million.
