Interpol: monopolist of fiscal storage devices for cash registers is wanted
Beneficiary of the cash reform Vladimir Shcherbakov is wanted by Interpol.
Interpol, at the request of Russia, put entrepreneur Vladimir Shcherbakov on an international wanted list; he is an alleged beneficiary of the production of fiscal storage devices for cash registers. The orientation indicates that he is suspected of large-scale withdrawal of funds abroad using fake documents as part of an organized group. Russian law enforcement agencies have not commented on the criminal prosecution of Shcherbakov.
Recall that the name of Vladimir Shcherbakov became known in connection with the scandalous law on cash equipment, because of which traders are forced to buy fiscal drives 10 times more than the prime cost. State Duma deputy Andrey Lugovoy called the businessman a beneficiary of monopoly production. The profit from the new law is received by a number of certain firms - Atlas-kart CJSC, Rik LLC and Besant CJSC, which beneficiary is Vladimir Alekseevich Shcherbakov. The FSB gave a license to manufacture cash registers of a new generation only to companies that were somehow aligned with the businessman. Other sellers of storage devices cannot obtain permission to trade due to unclear requirements for the device. According to parliamentarian Lugovoy, someone from high-ranking officials did this deliberately monopolizing the market.
The Republic edition suggested that Interpol's orientation towards Shcherbakov was obtained because of the case initiated in 2014 under illegal withdrawal of funds abroad through a small BVA Bank. 10 billion rubles ($170.5m) were siphoned off abroad. The co-owners of the BVA Bank were full namesakes of at least 8 people, connected both with the company Besant, and with its affiliated structures.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, in June 2016, a law on cash registers, capable of sending data to the Federal Tax Service online, was approved. Until 2017, the use of such equipment was voluntary, but from July 1, 2017, the transition to such devices is mandatory for all. Commercial structures are required to connect ‘smart technology’ to computers with the necessary software that will generate electronic checks. After that, entrepreneurs will have to conclude a contract with one of the operators of fiscal data, which will transfer information to the tax inspection.
Spanish prosecutor is widely known as the man who "brought down the Russian mafia in Spain," as he has been fighting Tambovskyaya, Solntsevskaya, Malyshevskaya, and Izmaylovskaya organized crime groups of Russia.

Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
