Investigators clarify accusations against ex-head of Antipinsky oil refinery
The investigation theory is that Gennady Lisovichenko sold an approach railroad to the Antipinsky oil refinery at an undervalue, and then took on lease from it, having caused significant damage to the oil refinery.
The investigation has clarified accusations of abuse of power (item 1 of article 201 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) against an ex-CEO of the Antipinsky oil refinery Gennady Lisovichenko, reports the media office of the criminal investigations directorate of the Russian Investigative Committee in the Tyumen region.
The investigation theory is that in late October, 2017, Lisovichenko tied a contract with a commercial company. The contract was related to sale of an approach railroad to the Antipinsky oil refinery. The approach railroad is a significant element of the enterprise, as running of oil products goes through it. The contract was worth of around 20 million rubles ($300 thousand) in spite of its market value - 38 million rubles ($570 thousand). This approach railroad was rented by the company. As a result, it caused significant damage to the oil refinery.
Lisovichenko was put on an international wanted list. The investigation reported he had been arrested in absentia.
Gennady Lisovichenko became a head of the oil refinery in 2004 and worked at this position till November, 2018. After that, the company’s number one shareholder - Sberbank - appointed new senior executives.
Lisovichenko was one of the founders of the Antipinsky oil refinery. Another founder is Dmitry Mazurov. The latter was detained on suspicion of $29 million swindling in mid-July. Criminal case against Mazurov was initiated upon the application of a head of Sberbank Herman Gref. According to the case file, Mazurov had received a major loan and - along with other parties - used the funds at his sole discretion and did not return the money to the bank. Mazurov has been arrested till September 12.
