Police detain resigned CEO of producer of vodka Five Lakes and Husky
The ex-manager is suspected of fraud on an especially large scale.
Former CEO of Alkogolnaya Sibirskaya Gruppa (Alcohol Siberian Group), which produces vodkas Five Lakes and Husky, Igor Savelyev was detained at the company's office on suspicion of an especially large-scale fraud, RBC reported, referring to sources. The ASG stated that Savelyev’s detention has nothing to do with the company and the former CEO’s work in it.
Savelyev resigned on the day of his detention, January 15. His position was taken by finance director Elena Tyabutova. The company continues to operate in a routine mode.
Savelyev became the ASG head on October 21, 2015. Prior to that, the manager worked for Wrigley, GK Nash Khleb, Aquanika and Rusagro.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
