The lower house of parliament sent inquiries to law enforcement agencies and the Central Bank with the requirement to find out the reasons, which have led to the withdrawal of assets.
The State Duma ordered committees on financial market and on safety to send inquiries to the Bank of Russia and law enforcement agencies to initiate a check of banks Yugra, FC Otkrytiye and Binbank. Parliamentarians intend to find out what has brought to such rapid loss of assets of the financial organizations and to make guilty persons responsible.
