The most expansive events’ organizer in Moscow promoter Andrey Fomin – whose services can afford only really wealthy customers - led the celebration at the yacht club.

In 2010 Svetlana married CEO of the Russian energy agency of the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation — Timur Ivanov who was earlier the vice chairman of the board of JSC Inter RAO UES. It was in these years, when Zakharova’s beloved experienced a rapid rise up the career ladder. For only a few years Ivanov became the deputy chairman of the government of the Moscow region, then — a general director of Oboronstroy and as a result was appointed Sergey Shoygu's deputy. Though, Ivanov's candidacy was not immediately approved for the post — his documents had been slipping in the Presidential Administration for a long time.
According to Gazeta.ru, the future deputy minister had been checked for about three months – before the appointment Ivanov had to provide certificates of his income repeatedly and undergo a number of long procedures regarding position compliance.

Karina Tsurkan was taken under arrest on suspicion of espionage. The board member of Inter RAO turned out to be a Russian national as opposed to the earlier claims that she was a Moldovan one. She gave up her Moldovan passport two years ago.

The clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
