At the disposal of Rucriminal.com was the record of the trial in Vienna on the extradition of Aslan Gagiyev (Dzhako), accused of organizing 60 murders. During the hearings, he testified against former Minister of Energy Yusufov Igor Khanukovich. Gagiyev said that Yusufov seized the business for $ 3 billion (it can be assumed that this is the assets of the Financial Leasing Company and the Wadan shipyards). Because of the conflict around these assets, Gagiev declared in the Vienna court, he began to fear that he himself could be eliminated. What is not surprisingly dangerous accomplices are always killed.
In 2008, the management of OAO "FLC" in the person of the first deputy director of the company Andrei Burlakov decided to purchase two Wadan shipyards from the Norwegian concern Aker Yards, located in the German cities of Warnemund and Wismar. As a partner in the transaction, Andrei Burlakov attracted the President's special representative for international energy cooperation and a member of Gazprom's board of directors Igor Yusufov and his son Vitaly. Then there was a conflict between the Yusufovs and Burlakovs, the general director of JSC FLC Nail Malyutin and Aslan Gagiev, who was "looking" for OJSC "FLC", took the side of the first. Under the surname Morozov, he participated in negotiations on major transactions of the company and was considered its co-owner. It is not surprising that in the course of this conflict Burlakov was killed. As established by the TFR, the crime was committed by members of the grouping of Aslan Gagiyev (aka Morozov). Clearly, they were not "customers". Yusufov himself, during interrogation, whose protocols Rucriminal.com previously published, categorically denied any involvement in the deal with the shipyards and related criminal events. However, questioned in Oslo at the request of Russian investigators, Tom Einertsen denied such evidence Yusufov. He said that the then special envoy of the president was one of the main characters in the deal - Igor Yusufov and his son Vitaly Yusufov became owners of Wadan Yards.
