The fugitive co-owner of the bank "Trust" Ilya Yurov, against whom a criminal case has been opened in Russia under Part 4 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code (misappropriation or embezzlement using the official position in an especially large amount), he decided to sue the sanatoriums of the bank from the "Opening of the Holding".

The emigrated banker assures that these two people have not fulfilled their oral promises. In Western courts considering disputes Eastern European business, this kind of verbal business arrangements termed ponyatiyka.
In court documents, Yurov argues that businessmen close to the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina www.rospres.com/specserv/8246/ businessmen Belyaev and Aganbegyan agreed to pay him and partners $ 50 million for the "Discovery" to become the sanator of Bank Trust.
