Russian Land Bank (RZB) became an active participant in the largest channel for money laundering from Russia in the summer of 2013. It was during this period that Igor Putin, a cousin of Vladimir Putin, was a member of the board of directors of RZB. According to the materials of the "Laundromat case", which are at the disposal of Rucriminal.info, the main shareholders of RZB, Alexander Gnigoriev and Beslan Bulguchev, attracted their bank to the mega-laundry "Laundromat" on June 30, 2013. The same shareholders in June 2012 took part in the invitation of Igor Putin to the bank, where he worked until November 2013. That is, when "dirty" billions were flowing through the RZS, Igor Putin worked in a bank. His surname "flashes" in the testimony of witnesses, but he was not interrogated in the case.
