President of Reserve Interstate Bank fled abroad
Vladimir Sipachev is charged with Swindling on an Especially Large Scale.
Investigators of the MIA Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow are preparing to put ex-Head of the Orthodox Party, President of the Reserve Interstate Bank Vladimir Sipachev, on the international wanted list after he failed to appear for questioning.
The investigation against the banker had been conducted since spring 2018. The day before, investigators summoned Sipachev to file him an indictment under Swindling on an Especially Large Scale, however, he did not appear in the Main Investigations Directorate; the police were also unable to locate him. According to preliminary data, Sipachev left the country hiding from justice.
According to the investigation, Head of the Association of Payers of Taxes and Fees Konstantin Gusarin had fallen a victim to Sipachev’s scam, Gusarin’s company carried out the reconstruction of a house in the center of Moscow, due to which he had a number of problems with the Moscow authorities. Sipachev volunteered to resolve them in exchange for a million dollars. Since 2012, he had paid part of the agreed amount. For a while, Sipachev pretended that he was actively solving the problems of the businessman using his connections in the government of Moscow, but at some point, he stopped getting in touch with him. After that, Gusarin reported the banker to the police.
Vladimir Sipachev is known as a businessman, banker, and creator of the Orthodox party, the members of which included singer Alla Pugacheva. He was also chairman of the Board of Directors of Master Bank and was known as a specialist in solving problems of bankers and credit institutions.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
