In the case of the fugitive banker and former owner of Vneshprombank Georgy Bedzhamov, a new defendant may appear - the offshore Clement Glory, which secured Bedzhamov’s real estate in Britain. He also sold a villa in France, all these assets are valued at $ 30 million. The Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA - the bankruptcy commissioner of Vneshprombank) believes that the pledge and sale of the villa were fictitious, and asks the court to involve Clement Glory in the process, follows from the amended requirements DIA for offshore published by RBC.

The beneficiary and director of Clement Glory is Eduard Golodnitsky, he also issued a mortgage on real estate. Bedzhamov in his testimony said that he knew Edward and his son Maxim Golodnitsky for a long time. When Bedzhamov asked the court to allow him additional expenses, it turned out that he owed Maxim Golodnitsky £ 45 thousand ($ 56 thousand). The court did not allow him to repay this debt.

Sources of say that, having gone to this offshore and to the Golodnitsky family, the DIA is closer than ever to how and where Bedzhamov hid the gigantic sums stolen from Vneshprombank (VPB). To do this, it is enough to study in depth Maxim Golodnitsky, who has Israeli citizenship and lives in London. So, until December 2013, “My Bank” through the Amsterdam company FFF Finance was controlled by businessman Gleb Fetisov. And then a group of people bought its stake, including Maxim Golodnitsky, Managing Director of Variety Capital. And later, Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank Mikhail Sukhov said that a hole in the balance sheet of My Bank exceeded 10 billion rubles, 90% of the bank’s assets disappeared and there was nothing to sanitize. This is an interesting question, and what funds were used to purchase My Bank and whose interests in the transaction were represented by Variety Capital and Maxim Golodnitsky. By the way, it would not hurt to study the role of Golodnitsky and the one behind him in that My Bank collapsed. And if you delve into the foreign assets bought by Variety Capital and other structures associated with the Golodnitsky family, you will be able to find a lot of interesting things. Moreover, they are not the real owners of these assets. What assets are these, what funds were bought, what Bedzhamov has to do with this, will tell in the near future.

Recall that Bedzhamov and Vneshprombank were custodians of the free funds of part of the Russian elite. Sources of say that unofficially investors in Vneshprombank and Bedzhamov were: the whole family of Sergei Shoigu, Dmitry Kozak, Alexei Kudrin, etc. The chairman of the bank’s council was Lirina Elena Vladimirovna. Despite the fact that she is the former wife of George Boos, they are connected by partnerships in business. In particular, Elena Lirina is the owner of an 11.04% stake in CJSC NPSP Svetoservice, the main structure of the Boos holding BL Group. Joint daughter Lirina and Boos Catherine is the “right hand” of her father. She holds the position of First Deputy General Director of BL GROUP Management Company LLC and is a member of the Board of Directors of this company.
