In early November, it became known, that the restaurant on Novy Arbat arrested businessman, who is co-owner of a number of failed financial institutions, including Bank "Western", "Doninvest" and "Russian Land Bank." According to police, Grigoriev "amassed" gang, which included at least 500 people, and brought out the Russian economy through Moldovan banks colossal sum of $ 46 billion. This global scheme Grigoriev, of course, not be able to crank out alone and without support influential patrons in the face of government officials and law enforcement agencies. As found "Criminal Russia", "the scam of the century" was a crank collusion between Russian bankers, large Moldovan politicians and criminal leaders of the major criminal groups.


In September of 2014 as a bolt from the sky thundered the news that the police exposed the scam, which resulted in the Russian state treasury "thin" at a whopping $ 46 billion. In the framework of the criminal case was arrested banker and businessman Alexander Grigoriev. According to investigators, for the implementation of the swindle Grigoryev "amassed" gang, which included at least 500 people and involved about 20 banks, some of which belonged to him and his accomplices. However, the sources of "Criminal Russia" stated that Grigoriev - just the tip of the iceberg of a huge crime, and the scheme, which has already been named "Moldovan", successfully operating for decades.

Railways as the root of all evil

In fact, the emergence of "Moldovan" scheme was back in 2007-th year in the offices of management of Russian Railways - the largest state monopoly. Vladimir Yakunin, took over as president of JSC "Russian Railways" in June of 2005, shortly after his appointment, brought in a old friend Andrew Krapivina and made him his adviser. A Krapivin, in turn, lobbied for places "leaders" of key structural units Railways his trusted Boris Usherovich and Valery Markelov, is closely associated with a large "Solntsevo" criminal gang.

According to the "Criminal Russia" is Yakunin and Krapivin with their proteges and were the true organizers of the scheme, and its meaning was to kidnap and withdraw money through the payment of allegedly the work of contractors. Especially for those covering corruption accomplices were created by firms - ephemeral and subsequently entered into the list of actual contractors. Companies - ghosts, in turn, placed the bank accounts in financial institutions, which were also members of the scheme. Among the banks - participants in the scam were "Interprogress", "STB", "INCREDBANK" controlled Krapivin, Usherovich and Markelov and "Baltika", which was the principal owner Oleg Vlasov, but in fact ruled "Solntsevo". Later Vlasov was also taken into a profitable "business."

By the way, the aforementioned "Baltika" is now on the brink of financial failure: according to the "Criminal Russia" the bank will lose the license of the Central Bank to operate in the near future. The budget deficit in the bank is long overdue, but previously it was possible to compensate for the expense of JSC "Russian Railways» .f11f0373b38d14c23bdcd475c79457a6.jpg

Stealing has become more difficult

In the year 2008 because of fiscal tightening by the Central Bank to cash such a large sum in Russia it has become more difficult. This, in fact, led to the creation of the "Moldavian" scheme - one of which is now written all media. Accomplices was made a collective decision to prosecute as "obnalnoy" area of ​​foreign banking field. Ideal approached Moldova. It remained only to build themselves a strong and influential "roof".

"Honorary" role in establishing corrupt relations has been given a native of Moldova Renato baleen named "Hachiko", who at the time worked at a company controlled by Andrey Krapivin. Mustached task consisted in promoting acquaintance Andrew Krapivina with large Moldovan politician and businessman Vladimir Plahotniuc. In 2005 - the year Plahotniuc was elected Vice-Chairman of the Council of the Society of the first joint-stock commercial bank Victoriabank, for the time being one of the largest banks in Moldova. According to the "Criminal Russia", among other things, Plahotniuc was the local "gray cardinal" who ran the security forces in Moldova. That is perfectly suited for this candidacy.

It is well known that Russia is corrupt Plahotniuc made an offer he could not refuse and allocated for this purpose from the ranks of his henchmen person. Emma Tabirta formally taking up the post of first deputy director of "National Bank of Moldova", in fact, solely to manage financial ucherzhdeniem. In addition, according to the "Criminal Russia" Tabirta fact the bank manager «Bank de Economii» (in meaning - analogue of the Russian "Savings Bank") and «Moldindconbank». Around the same time, the participants scam joined another actor. Veaceslav Platon - the former deputy of the Moldovan Parliament and the majority shareholder «Moldindconbank», that is the person of Vladimir Plahotniuc.

In fact, from this moment, "the Moldovan scheme" has been equipped with all the components and the mechanism to work in full force.

Fisherman - Fisherman

In parallel with the "Solntsevo" Russia's illegal financial transactions engaged in by representatives of other major gang. "Podolsk" as "Solntsevo" feed and replenish their "common fund" through such illegal financial transactions.

"Criminal Russia" became known that from the beginning of his way, "businessman" Alexander Grigoriev arrested today decided to "facilitate", with the support of the criminal "roof" in the face of a known criminal "authority" Sergey Lalakina, better known as the onion. Taking Grigorieva under its criminal wing, onion, apparently considered it a great "financier", especially since the previously received higher education at the Russian financial and economic institutions. In general, Podolsk gangs that with 80s Lalakin headed by Sergey Grigoriev began to monitor the completion of "common fund", including through large-scale "obnalnyh 'operations and the withdrawal of these illegal funds for rubezh.9275128.jpg

If "Solntsevo" cheated with money Railways, the "Podolsk" - with funds provided by the Russian treasury three major ministries - the Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education and the state corporation "Rosatom", says a source "Criminal Russia". With the increase in cash flow "Solntsevo" needed new banks - four no longer cope and "Podolsk" Treasurer Alexander Grigoriev needed access to foreign banks. It was a mutually beneficial intersection of interests of the two gangs: Grigoriev received Moldovan "roof", and "Solntsevo" were able to carry out fake transactions with contractors Railways through bank accounts located in banks already involved Grigoriev. He has them, let us recall, was about 20, "Russian Credit", "transport", "West", "Bridge Bank", "Antalbank", "Russian Land Bank", "Taurus", "European Express", "Rublevsky "" Interkapitalbank "(all currently revoked their licenses revoked, - Ed.). "Baltika", "Oka", "strategy", "Maritime Bank", "Smart Banking", "Creditinvest" and "Tempbank" still "breathe", but according to "Criminal Russia", will be closed in the foreseeable future.

The first in the "sorrowful" list, the Central Bank will be the bank "Baltic", says a source "Criminal Russia". In this connection, it is easy to assume that law enforcement agencies will get to Oleg Vlasov - accomplice of Grigoriev and Chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC JSCB "Baltic".
