Owner of Bankirsky Dom wanted on suspicion of embezzling $10m
In March 2016, the Central Bank of Russia revoked the license from a commercial bank.
Owner of the joint-stock company AKB Bankirsky Dom Evgeny Lykov was declared federally wanted on suspicion of embezzling 600 million rubles ($10m) belonging to the bank.
As the press service of the ICR in St. Petersburg informs, Lykov has credited hundreds of millions of rubles to his accounts on the basis of fictitious incoming cash orders. In order to conceal the crime, the owner of Bankirsky Dom issued more than a thousand fictitious contracts for the provision of loans to individuals without their knowledge. In fact, loans were not issued. Those, who obtained loans, can not receive their deposits in the bank.
In July 2017, the suspect was summoned to the ICR Central Board in St. Petersburg for bringing charges against him under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling), but Lykov did not show up. In this regard, the banker was declared federally wanted.
Bankirsky Dom was registered in St. Petersburg in 1994. In March 2016, the Central Bank of Russia revoked its license. The reason for this was the dubious financial activities of the credit institution, as well as the fact that the bank ran out of its own funds. The interim administration identified a shortfall of 1.4 billion rubles ($23.5m) in the institution. The auditors also determined that the value of the bank's assets does not exceed 0.4 billion rubles ($6.7m), while the value of liabilities to creditors is 3.2 billion rubles ($53.7m).
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
The presidential election scheduled for March 18 should be held as a holiday - the Kremlin gave such order to the regions. The Presidential Administration expects that the festive atmosphere at polling stations will increase the turnout, sources told RBC.
