Sister of late Sport Express owner confirmed his creditors put pressure on him
According to Margarita Vennberg, Ivan Rubin borrowed 40 thousand euros from businessman Vladimir Tyurenkov about a year ago. When Rubin delayed payments, Tyurenkov raised interest, and the amount of the debt increased to 70 thousand euros.
The sister of the former owner of Sport Express edition, who had committed suicide the day before, confirmed that creditors put pressure on her brother, Moskovsky Komsomolets pens.
According to Margarita Vennberg, Ivan Rubin contacted her on the afternoon of October 15. He told her that he was going to have a meeting at 4 pm with businessman Vladimir Tyurenkov, who had lent him 40 thousand euros about a year ago. Rudin paid 2,000 euros per month to his debtor, but after paying about 10 thousand he started delaying the payments. The interest rate increased from 5% to 10%. As a result, the amount of debt reached 70 thousand euros.
The sister of the deceased believes that Tyurenkov put pressure on him and demanded his money back. The meeting on October 15 was supposed to end his relations: the ex-owner had to repay the debt, otherwise, he would have to “regret very much” about it.
Vennberg also said that Rubin had “constantly” complained about threats. He told that the debtor is “a very tough person,” and was always humiliating him. “He threatened to cut off his fingers,” the sister of the deceased told.
Also, the sister of the ex-owner of Spor Express said that he rented an apartment on Tverskoy Boulevard for 150 thousand rubles a month, and she had been paying the rent for him.
Ivan Rubin committed suicide on October 15. His body was found at about 4 pm under next to a high-rise building on Osenniy Boulevard in Moscow. He left a suicide note in which he accused Vladimir Tyurenkov of his death. Tyurenkov himself told 360 TV channel that he does not see his fault in the death of Rubin. According to the businessman, he did not threaten him. They had a notarized contract, which expired several months ago. Rubin took the money to build an apartment complex in his restaurant at VDNHk.
Preliminary hearings of the case pertaining to embezzlements committed during the construction of notorious Zenit Arena haven’t commenced yet – but the trial of Marat Oganesyan already ceased to be monotonous.
