"Like Berezovsky." Father of Colonel Zakharchenko earned his fortune in the 90s changing vodka to vouchers
However, Viktor Zakharchenko omitted the details of his business.
Father of Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko Viktor Zakharchenko told the court about how he earned his fortune. In particular, we are talking about two apartments, each of which is estimated at several hundred million rubles.
Zakharchenko Sr. was engaged in commercial activity in the 90th, "like Berezovsky", he said. Whether it was legal, Dmitry's father does not know, but stressed that at that time "everyone was doing it."
One of the specific activities of the father was the exchange of bottles of vodka for vouchers. After that, Viktor Zakharchenko bought Gazprom shares for vouchers. The man did not delve into his scheme, saying, "It’s a long conversation".
Recall that in the property of the father of the family Victor Zakharchenko, among other things, there are 2 very expensive apartments. One is located on Prechistenskaya Embankment and its cost is estimated at 390 million rubles ($6.5m). The second apartment with two car lots is located in the Yakimanka district and is estimated at 195 million rubles ($3.2m). It is known that Viktor Zakharchenko gave the second apartment on Yakimanka to his granddaughter.
Viktor Zakharchenko was charged with two episodes of embezzlement of the funds of the Moscow Mortgage Agency, where he was allegedly employed. The accused does not admit his guilt and thinks his criminal case is an attempt to press his son’s case.
