Member of the Ukrainian parliament from the party Servant of the People Anna Skorokhod accused members of the same party and President Vladimir Zelensky of personal revenge.

The amount of damages in the criminal case instituted in relation to the bankruptcy of Ugra Bank has suddenly increased by almost 27 times – from 7.5 to 200 billion rubles ($113.3 million – $3 billion). This happened after the testimonies of detained Nina Chernova, Director of the Moscow Branch of Ugra Bank. Unlike the other suspects in this case placed under home arrest, Chernova was remanded in custody – supposedly, to extract from her the required confessions. However, at least two more persons could testify against Khotin – detained FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin and Valery Miroshnikov, ex-First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA). The defense team of the former owner of Ugra Bank vehemently denies any ties between Khotin and these people, which raises even stronger suspicions. Interestingly, the name of general Viktor Voronin, who was in charge of “K” Directorate of the Economic Security Service of the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation for 12 years, is not mentioned in this case. Could the former boss of Cherkalin testify against Khotin? And what schemes were used to obtain statements incriminating him?
