Credit Lyonnais, Saint Petersburg, 1992

Credit Lyonnais Chesnokov

Phonebook from Credit Lyonnais Bank, 1992, showing that its headquarters office in Russia had been opened in St. Petersburg (see Putin’s words on this back in 1992). Office chief was Michel Tschesnakoff (also known as Mikhail Chesnakov or Chesnokov). By 2015, Chesnakov, then president of ABB Russia (Switzerland), was investigated in Switzerland because of suspicions that he opened Credit Lyonnais’ accounts to accept illegal kickbacks from Siemens to Gazprom. In a Swiss court, the defendants claimed that the purpose of transactions was payment for consultation and were acquitted.
