Spanish report on Deripaska and Chernoy’s connection to organized crime and Russian political power (Es)

Deripaska Abramovich doc from Spain

Spanish law enforcers’ undated unsigned report on Oleg Deripaska’s ties to organised crime – Izmaylovskaya , mentioning also Alisher Usmanov and Roman Abramovich:

“Deripaska … was closely linked to transnational organized crime and this fact is widely recognized. For example, this is the case of the Russian citizen of Uzbek descent Alisher Usmanov, who would be investing Deripaska’ funds in the European market”.

Deripaska is currently making a special effort to dissociate himself entirely from the criminal circles with which he collaborated previously. And as indicated above, this is the case of Cherney and Izmailovskaya. To be exact, the main purpose of this attitude is to achieve a relevant role in the group of oligarchs closest to the Russian administration. For that he tries to play the same role as the oligarch Roman Abramovich who is attributed the role to manage the private economic interests of Vladimir Putin.

Hermitage Capital’s investigation into possible corruption at Gazrom, Eural Trans Gas and Rosukrenergo, 2005

Hermitage Capital investigation into corruption in Gazrom, EuralTransGaz and Rosukrenergo, 2005

Hermitage Capital Management told “The Moscow Times” on 16 June 2005 (as recalled here by Radio Free Europe) that Gazprom is losing out on $478 million in annual revenues from the RosUkrEnergo deal and that this money is going to unknown beneficiaries participating in RosUkrEnergo via Raiffeisen Investment.  At that time Hermitage Capital was minory shareholder of Gazprom.

As this Hermitage’s presentation shows, the figure comes from the official accounting of Gazprom itself, comparing what Gazprom could have had earned without giving monopoly of export to Ukraine to Eural Trans Gas and Rosukrenergo.

sentence-salikov_recognized

Yuri Salikov was acquitted in the Russian mafia case (Troika case) in 2018 in Spain, on charges of money laundering of the Tambov gang funds, like all the other defendants. While the sentence recognized the suspicious transactions as “anti economic”, the difficulty was to prove the predicate offence when Russian authorities gave contradictory reports to Spain on the Tambov / gang, amid suspicion of strong ties of the main defendants with the Russian law enforcers and government.  See also accusation of 1994 in Sant-Petersburg against the Tambov-Malyshev gang of creating organized crime community , extortion, gathering slush funds and their laundering in Europe. It also led to almost full acquittal in trial  amid testimonies of corruption of the court. Victims of extortion said they were wrong identifying their kidnappers in the court. The Spanish court in 2018 trusted to this Sankt-Petersburg aquittal of 1995 and the more recent FSB reports, including of its Sankt-Petersburg branch, presented by the defence.

By the present sentence, from 4 April 2019, Yuri Salikov was convicted by the Spanish court Audiencia Nacional for  tax evasion (for the same transactions earlier incriminated in money laundering case).

Salikov was co-owner and than took over the Spanish company Sunstar SL from Gennadios (Gennadi) Petrov which is fleeing the Spanish justice, one can read in the sentence. In 2002-2003 Yuri Salikov increased the capital of the company by more than 2 Mln of euros, simulating three loans, which were factitious, considered the court. The company invested funds of unknown origin to invest in real estate (p. 5). Doing so, “Yuri Salikov omitted to declare the income, recieved in the 2002 financial year, of 2 283 830 euros, failing to pay a fee to public finances which should be 938 235 euros” (p. 6).

The court condemned Yuri Salikov (Jurij Mihajlovich SALIKOV) as the author responsible for a crime against the Public Treasury, defining a  penalty of one year and three months in prison and a fine of 469 117 euros, with subsidiary personal responsibility of six months in case of default.
The convicted person must also indemnify the Public Treasury as civil liability in the amount of EUR 938,235 plus legal interest.

As it is clear from the sentence, Salikov and his wife, participating in the business of her husband and Gennadios Petrov, both have German citizenship.

Yuri Salikov is considered by the Spanish investigation to be close to bank Rossiya long time major shareholder Gennadios Petrov and Iskander Makhmudov (accused of belonging to Izmaylovo gang) who allegedly paid a pledge for Salikov in 2008.
