Sberbank does not have Colonel Zakharchenko's money
According to Deputy Chairman of Sberbank's Executive Board Stanislav Kuznetsov, the financial organization does not store money seized from the former Acting Head of the MIA GUEBiPK Department T Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko, accused of bribe-taking and abuse of authority.
It was Head of Sberbank of Russia's Сash Сollection Control Andrey Novikov who revealed that 8.5 billion rubles (mainly in foreign currency) would be transferred for storage to Sberbank in September last year.
Today, Stanislav Kuznetsov denied this information, calling it "someone's poorly interpreted words."
"We have nothing to do with it; we do not have the money and do not store this kind of evidence," Kuznetsov replied to a journalist's question about transfer of confiscated funds to Sberbank.
Let us recall that September 9, FSB detained Acting Head of the MIA GUEBiPK Department T Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko as a result of special operation; a few days later, the court arrested him on charges of committing crimes on three articles of the Russian Criminal Code. The former Colonel is accused of bribe-taking, abuse of authority, and obstruction of preliminary investigation. A large sum of cash amounting to 8.5 billion rubles was found in an apartment of Dmitry Zakharchenko's sister. Dmitry Zakharchenko denies the charges against him without explaining the origin of the money.
