The main individual accused by the US prosecutor's office is Denis Katsyv, known more as the son of Peter Katsyv. And Peter Dmitrievich Katsyv from 2000 to 2012 (the period of the governorship of Boris Gromov) was headed by the Ministry of Transport of the Moscow Region. Then he moved to the post of vice-president of Russian Railways in October 2014, retaining this post, despite the change in leadership and strategy for the development of the railway monopoly. The US prosecutor's office believes that through the company of Mr. Katsyev, the Russian budget was stolen. The scheme also includes Moldovan firms Bunicon-Impex and Elenast-COM, as well as the Swiss bank UBS. His path was stolen money in Manhattan, where they were laundered through the purchase of real estate acquired by Prevezon. This circumstance allowed to file a claim against a company registered in Cyprus and to indict on the territory of the United States. The prosecution was put forward in November 2013, but throughout this time the proceedings went mainly in "extra-judicial formats." Browder in the bushes It is known that the initiator of the case and in fact his developer was William Browder. The international investor, at the peak of his fame caused by the adoption of the "Magnitsky law," admitted that as early as December 2012, he handed over to the prosecutors of New York a dossier collected by his team. And three weeks later received an answer that prosecutors were interested. William Browder had his own scores - not so much to Katsyv himself, as to money withdrawn from Russia. According to the browser version of the events, in 2007, during the search, his companies stole registration documents and seals of three companies. Subsequently, these documents surfaced with the receipt of a $ 230 million refund for VAT - the same money, which, according to the Prosecutor's Office, Katsyv was involved with Prevezon. New faces Browder's active involvement in the preparation of the case made him the main target of Katsyv's defense. The teams of Browder and Katsyiv waged a real war, which developed as an amazing blend of legal thriller, a procedural drama with elements of chase through the streets of New York. The last time the case came close to hearing in the past, in 2016, but at the last moment the court dismissed the defenders of Katsyv from participating in the case. Representatives Browder managed to convince the judge that one of the lawyers from the team Katsyva has a conflict of interest. The fact is that in 2008-2009 he advised William Browder. This time, Katsyv's interests are represented by a team of lawyers, which includes former federal prosecutor Kevin Reed, as well as ex-assistants to the New York prosecutor Adam Abenson and Faith Gay. In other words, the rate is made on insiders who know how things are done in the prosecutor's office. Now even the judge in the case is already a new character. The last decision (on the beginning of the jury selection) was taken by William Paul III, who gained fame after the closure of Kazakhgate - a large-scale bribery case in Kazakhstan, paid by major oil corporations to the accounts of state leaders.

Its participants gathered next to the billionaire skyscraper belonging to Trump Tower. Katsyv as the face of Russia in the Magnitsky case Involving the money flows "seized" in Russia from William Browder, and exposing Sergei Magnitsky make the expected process political. In which Katsyv will represent Russia, and the prosecutor's office - to prove the correctness of the sanctions imposed by the adoption of the "Magnitsky law". The face of Denis Katsyv, as well as the circumstances of his business and family ties, can make an absolutely indelible impression on the American jurors. Moreover, as they say in the materials of the case, by February 1 the prosecutor's office must submit additional documents. Which are unlikely to paint the accused in pleasant colors.
