Head of Russian Authors' Society received new damages and suretyship in respect of Mikhalkov
There are new facts in a criminal case against Sergei Fedotov, the Head of the Russian Authors' Society.
According to updated information, Fedotov’s damages come to 297 million rubles (previously it was reported about 500 million rubles). On June 30, 2016, investigators accused him of Swindling on an especially large scale (Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Defence Denis Baluev explained that imputing to Fedotov crime is constrained by Fedotov’s conveyance of property to a subsidiary limited liability.
Baluev also reported that the president of the Russian Union of Right Holders, Nikita Mikhalkov, has signed a personal suretyship for Fedotov on the day of his arrest, 30 June 2016. Mikhalkov said this was made to facilitate leniency. The national artist explained his willingness to stand up for Fedotov was for humane reasons. "On a human level I believe that Sergey Fedotov's preventive measure would be more humane," - said Mikhalkov. At the same time, he claimed that he had no share in the Russian Authors' Society business. However, the life stories of Nikita Mikhalkov and Sergei Fedotov's seem to show the contrary.
Previously, The CrimeRussia wrote about the connection between Russian Authors' Society and the Russian Union of Right Holders, and Mikhalkov and Fedotov as business collaborators.
Investigators asked the Tagansky District Court of Moscow to arrest the Head before 17th of August. He was detained on June 28, 2016 after a night interrogation at the police.
