The "Black Cat" ran between two of the richest business partners - former Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Vasily Pozdyshev and Deputy Chairman of the DIA Valery Miroshnikov. According to sources at, Pozdyshev, to whom the security services have a lot of questions, hopes to avoid troubles on the power line and continue to earn money in Russia. Recently, he tried to acquire a refurbished Moscow Industrial Bank (MINbank). But a friend Valery Miroshnikov opposed the deal, to whom the road to the Russian Federation was closed. And they have common means.

According to our sources, just serious battles unfolded for MINbank. Initially, it was decided by the chairman of the board of directors of the Management Company of the Banking Sector Consolidation Fund LLC Vasily Pozdyshev. He decided to do this through the investment fund The Angcc Global investment consortium. But here Pozdyshev had big problems. In banking circles, Pozdyshev-Miroshnikov, a close-knit banking spike, has never been a secret. The head of the banking department of the Office of the FSB of the Russian Federation, Kirill Cherkalin, who is now in custody, closely interacted with them. "Partners" built a giant business on banks. Hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions of dollars, came from inspections of banks, reorganization, bankruptcy, etc. There were many schemes. We will tell you about them somehow. Cherkalin took his "earnings". But Pozdyshev and Miroshnikov, according to the source of, together withdrew funds to the West and together invested through investment funds. After the arrest of Cherkalin, the FSB of the Russian Federation came to grips with Miroshnikov too. There was every reason for this. He hastily left the country, simultaneously resigning from the DIA. Miroshnikov was ordered to go to Russia, he would be immediately detained. But Pozdyshev, although he lost the post of deputy chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, but managed so far to stay safely in Russia. He has a keen interest on the part of the special services, but Pozdyshev does not give up and believes that everything will be fine with him. In particular, he decided to acquire Minbank through the Angcc Global investment consortium, which had been withdrawn from Miroshnikov. However, Miroshnikov categorically opposed this, who believes that it is impossible to invest joint capital in Russia, since the ex-deputy head of the DIA will not be able to return to the country. As a result, Pozdyshev did not refuse to make money from the plan at MINB, having decided to sell it to Rostekha at a profit. But there was an obstacle.

The German bank Varengold Bank AG, which is closely associated with the former official beneficiary of the Moscow Industrial Bank Abubakar Arsamakov, expressed interest in buying the Minbank. According to sources, Arsamakov once withdrew 100 billion in ruble equivalent to the Dubai branch of Varengold Bank AG. Moreover, it did this without coordination with Chechen officials, for the time being they did not suspect this. The emergence of a new potential buyer did not like Pozdyshev. And then there were events that were first reported by the telegram channel of the Cheka-OGPU. Influencers in Chechnya learned about the withdrawn funds and the desire of Varengold Bank AG to buy MINbank. As a result, Arsamakov’s relatives migrated to a secret prison, and Abubakar himself arrived in the republic. He was required to arrange access to accounts in the German Varengold Bank AG, on which the withdrawn funds are located. All legal formalities were already settled, as the border crossing due to coronavirus began. Varengold Bank AG itself dropped out of their applicants for the Minbank, Pozdyshev was extremely pleased with the success. Moreover, he began to reveal all the cards, and went to Rostec and began to rush representatives of the state corporation with the purchase of MINBANK. Like, you have to hurry, otherwise MIN can go to a German bank.

 In early April, Vasily Pozdyshev was elected to the board of directors of Moscow Industrial Bank, and he continues to convince Rostec of the purchase with tripled strength. The source of does not exclude that the deal may already occur immediately after the decline of all measures taken in connection with the coronavirus.
