United Grain Company former director general arrested within Magomedov brothers' case
Sergey Polyakov is arrested for two months.
The former director general of the United Grain Company, Sergey Polyakov, is arrested by a decision of the Tverskoy Court of Moscow until November 3 for Swindling committed on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code, part 3 of Article 210 of the Criminal Code). He is a defendant in the case of owners of the Summa group Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedovs.
Earlier, another defendant, ex-head of the United Grain Company (OZK) department of economic security Roman Gribanov, closed a deal in 2012-2013 to purchase Ukrainian grain from Newbay Investments L.P. group of companies registered in Britain.
According to the case materials, OZK partners received $20 million as prepayments for these transactions, but they did not supply the grain. Allegedly the embezzlement of funds in favor of Ziyavudin Magomedov, connected with Newbay, was carried out that time. As Polyakov headed OZK, the investigation decided to interrogate him.
Ziyavudin Magomedov and his brother Magomed were arrested in Moscow in late March this year. The investigation believes that they have created a criminal community and committed especially large scale and embezzlement (part 1 of Article 210 of the Criminal Code, part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code, part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code).
Thus, all the defendants in the case - Ziyavudin Magomedov, his brother Magomed, as well as the vice president of Summa Capital, Alexander Kabanov, and the former director general of the Intex company, Artur Maksidov, are now in jail.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
