The Rucriminal.info source said that one of the organizers of the largest laundering channel through which about 500 billion rubles passed. A significant part of this money previously belonged to the largest state monopolies - Russian Railways and Gazprom. The channel operated on the basis of the Novoye Vremya bank, whose co-owners - Ivan Stankevich and Dmitry Motorin - are wanted for giving bribes to the ex-employee of the GUEBiPK of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Zakharchenko. Actually, the materials obtained in the framework of the "Zakharchenko case" formed the basis of the mega-laundry case. Until last week, as part of the investigation, the accused were brought against managers, accountants, system administrators, and unidentified persons were listed as the creators of the OPS. Now, the "network" of operatives has got a really "big fish". A "shadow" banker, former shareholder of Interprogressbank Denis Yakhin, who is considered one of the co-organizers of the "laundry", was detained and then arrested by the Presnensky Court. He is a cousin of the head of the Moscow Ice Hockey Federation, Chairman of the Board of Directors of HC Spartak Sergei Mendeleev, who is now under house arrest in the case of embezzling 3.2 billion rubles of Investbank funds. Another defendant in this case is Grigory Yusufov - at the time of his arrest he held the position of an advisor at Gazprombank. Mendeleev is also involved in the "laundry" case.
Recall that the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in Moscow is a criminal case initiated under Articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation 210 parts 1 and 2 (creation of a criminal community, participation in an organized criminal community) and 172 (illegal banking activity). Several hundred billion rubles have passed through the sites that operated under the New Time bank (laundered and mostly withdrawn abroad). One of the main clients of the "laundry" was GK 1520, then controlled by the KUM team - Aleksey Krapivin, Boris Usherovich, Valery Markelov. KUM was served by a whole group of close bankers. The main one is Sergey Mendeleev. Ivan Stankevich and Dmitry Motorin and their Ukrainian partner in the bank “Novoye Vremya” Valery Razdorozhny helped him. The money allocated by Gazprom to its contractors also went through this “laundry”. The roof of the two channels for embezzlement of budget funds was the same: Dmitry Zakharchenko from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Dmitry Frolov and Kirill Cherkalin from the FSB. There were also other security officials.
