According to preliminary information, the money was withdrawn under fictitious contracts for the provision of agency services in the amount of 15% of the box office and other ticket operations.
Director of the circus, Dmitry Reznichenko, has confirmed the seizure of documents to Bloknot-Rostov, however he linked the siloviki’s actions to his disagreements with the leadership of the Russian State Circus.
