Сolonel Zakharchenko’s brother-in-law said that $120 million could belong to him
The spouse of the ex-law enforcement authority’s sister is not sure that the means found during searches belong to him.
Vladimir Razgonov, husband of the Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko’s sister, being a witness in court said that $120 million found in his wife’s apartment could probably belong to him. Correspondent of TASS reported about it from Nikulinsky Court, where the claim of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation for transfer of property of the colonel to the state is considered.
When answering the judge's question whether the found means belong to Razgonov, he answered: “Most likely.”
According to Razgonov, in three years he earned $15 million, and in four months he can make “1.5 million”, without specifying in what currency, if the “tax does not intervene.”
To recall, the Prosecutor General’s Office appealed to court with the requirement to collect income of Colonel Zakharchenko which he acquired in the criminal way in favor of the state. In particular, those were 27 real estate objects, four expensive cars registered to Colonel's relatives and friends and also foreign currency for the sum of about 8 billion rubles ($135 million) and a gold ingot. In total the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation asked to turn about 9 billion rubles ($152 million) into advantage of the state.
The ex-deputy chief of Administration of the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Combatting Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation is accused under three articles - Abuse of Official Powers (Art. 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), Hindrance to Justice Implementation (Art. 294 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and also Bribe-Taking (Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
