Roman Tsepov’s complaint against Yuri Shutov

shutov tsepov

Yuriy Shutov  – an early assistant in Sobchak’s administration who was fired after accusing the mayor’s office of corruption. See book by Shutov: “the Sobchak’s heart”.

Shutov was accused of contract murders and sentenced to life imprisonment amid a public support campaign.  Shutov died in Russian penal colony in 2015.

On September 14, 2010, an application No. 20922/08 has been communicated to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Mr. Shutov alleged that sentencing him to lifetime imprisonment while he was not present in the courtroom amounts to inhuman treatment.

This is to remind who accused Shutov of banditry:  Roman Tsepov, Former Ministry of Interior officer, co-founder, with Victor Zolotov, of security company called Baltik-Eskort, convicted criminal Ruslan Koliak, and former State Douma deputy and Soviet and Russian journalist Alexander Nevzorov (see mentions of Nevzorov by Marina Salye; in the Spanish criminal case of Tambov gang).

Outside Russia, no law enforcers’ reports endorse existence of the  “Shutov’s band”, unlike, for example, Izmaylovo, Solntsevo and Tambov gangs.

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.
