Businessman David Yakobashvili allegedly bought stolen masterpieces and sold fakes
The founder of Wimm-Bill-Dann is currently abroad.
New details of the visit of the FSB officers to the museum of entrepreneur David Yakobashvili have been revealed by Karaulny Telegram channel. According to the source, the businessman could buy stolen masterpieces and sell fakes.
There is currently no official information on the case of Yakobashvili.
Recall, on June 18, security officials paid a visit to David Yakobashvili, one of the founders of Wimm-Bill-Dann company. It was reported that the investigative actions are connected with the criminal case initiated by the FSB on the complaint of business former partner of Yakobashvili - Boris Minakhi. Minakhi appealed to the head of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov with a complaint on an attempted raider seizure of the Yeisk port elevator. According to the source, Yakobashvili "loaned" the shares of this elevator to Minakhi, "who he had known for more than 40 years."
Yakobashvili himself told Vedomosti that he was currently in Geneva at the conference of the International Labor Organization. According to the organization's website, the conference will last until June 21. The businessman did not comment on the claims of the law enforcement officers. When answering the question of Vedomosti whether he plans to return to Russia, Yakobashvili replied: “I have nothing to say.”
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
