Stanislav Kyuner made a deal with the investigation.
Former Deputy Director General of Federal State Unitary Enterprise Ateks under the Federal Security Service (FSO) Stanislav Kyuner, accused of embezzlement during the construction of the presidential residence, went on cooperation with the investigation. In particular, the businessman gave testimony against billionaire Dmitry Mikhalchenko, known in the media as ‘24-hour governor’, Rosbalt reports.
The source of the publication informed that Kyuner was already the third person complicit in the high-profile case, who concluded a pre-trial agreement. Apart from him ex-Director of company Stroykomplekt (which belongs to Dmitry Mikhalchenko) Dmitry Torchinsky and businessman Sergey Perevalov cooperate with the investigation. According to the source, they have already given detailed testimony regarding the case in question.
The witness in the case is General Director of company Baltstroy (also owned by Mikhalchenko) Dmitry Sergeev, who is also a defendant in case on embezzlement in the Ministry of Culture. All testimonies indicate Mikhalchenko as the alleged initiator of the criminal schemes. The source of the publication believes that new charges may be brought against the billionaire.
In March 2016 Dmitry Mikhalchenko, as well as businessmen Anatoly Kindzersky, Boris Korevsky and General Director of the Southeast Trade Company Ilya Pichko, were detained by employees of the Investigative Committee and the FSB on suspicion of smuggling elite alcohol. According to the media, Mikhalchenko was the organizer of the smuggling ‘scheme’. All detainees were charged under Art. 200.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Smuggling of Alcoholic Beverages and (or) Tobacco Products). In addition, the ‘24-hour governor’ could face an indictment under Art. 210 of the Criminal Code (Creation of a Criminal Community). Thanks to the testimony of Kindzersky, a criminal case was initiated against Boris Korevsky under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling on an especially large scale). However, Korevsky himself did not admit his guilt.
