“Tried to take him out for a little fresh air.” Video footage emerges showing Deripaska’s people capturing Tryokhgornaya manufaktura
The video shows a group of men surrounding a head of security service and taking him to an adjacent room. Light is sometimes turned off there. Then, the man was put on the floor.
Businessman Oleg Deripaska’s representatives have attacked head of security service of Tryokhgornaya manufaktura company. Bloomber has posted the corresponding CCTV video. The day before, it was shown at London court hearing a dispute on a high end land property in the center of Moscow between Deripaska and former Chairman of Vneshtorgbank Viktor Chernukhin. Chernukhin’s lawyers state that the December, 2010 raid became “a turning-point” at the dispute over the control of the enterprise.
Rosbalt reports that on of the attackers was allegedly a former officers of the Russian Navy Arkady Sarkisyan who was called Deripaska’s “fighter.” The video shows a group of men surrounding a head of security service and taking him to an adjacent room. Light is sometimes turned off there. Then, the man was put on the floor. With that, as seen in the video, some of the guards were carrying guns under their jackets.
Deripaska’s representatives state they really carried out a change in the company’s leadership, however there was no violent seizure. Their theory is that the head of security service felt unwell, and Deripaska’s people “tried to take him out for a little fresh air.”
Tryokhgornaya manufaktura owns a for-profit complex of buildings of the same name in the center of Moscow. Deripaska’s Bazel bought a controlling stake in Tryokhgornaya manufaktura through a Cyprus-based Navio Holdings in 2002. Chernukhin’s partner wife was appointed the company's chief executive. In 2017, he stated he had been Deripaska’s equal partner at Navio Holdings (with 50% of the company owned by both of them). In 2010, the billionaire promised to buy his 50% of Navio Holdings for $100 million, however did not do that. Chernukhin initiated a claim at London’s International Court of Arbitration and won the case - Deripaska had to pay him $95,2 million. Now, the businessman is challenging this decision at the High Court of London.
Chernukhin’s lawyer states his client agreed to sell his 50% of Navio, after Deripaska organized an armed seizure of the enterprise On December 14, 2010. The billionaire hired a “strong-arm man” who came to the enterprise with 30 persons. These people managed to force out of the guards; the head of security service was injured and had to receive hospital treatment.
