Is the Farce Continuing? "Roskomsnabbank" of Flur Gallyamov Pretends to Be Suing a Shell Company, into Which He Previously Diverted Half a Billion12.02.2024 12:48
Close to the head of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, the republican deputy and oligarch Flur Gallyamov seems to be continuing to fret. It’s hard to explain otherwise the unconvincing but costly PR efforts of his team against the Central Bank of Russia. The Gallyamovs, in uniform paid publications, claim that the Roskomsnabbank, controlled by the oligarch, which lost its license in March 2019 for violations of anti-money laundering legislation and signs of a financial pyramid, was supposedly blameless, and all the mishaps were the fault of the mega-regulator, i.e., the Central Bank under the leadership of Elvira Nabiullina. Similar manipulations of public opinion were previously attempted by Alexey Hotin: the media campaign after the withdrawal of the license from his bank "Yugra" for numerous violations was also built on outright accusations against the Bank of Russia. For Hotin, the inappropriate PR fuss ended with a criminal case and arrest.
However, the beneficiary of Roskomsnabbank, Flur Gallyamov, who allowed a hole in his bank’s balance sheet of almost 20 billion rubles and the "merging" with the affiliated pyramid "Golden Reserve," continues to walk free, despite protests by affected citizens and mass complaints to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Prosecutor General’s Office.
In the spring of 2019, the Central Bank officially announced that the audit of the collapsed Roskomsnabbank revealed "signs of criminal offenses in the actions of officials…". Elvira Nabiullina’s apparatus forwarded the materials for initiating a criminal case to the Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika and the head of the investigative department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Alexander Romanov (deputy to Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev). However, there has been no investigation. "And although Kolokoltsev still holds the chair of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Mikhail Mishustin’s government, at least there is a new head in the prosecutor’s office. This inspires hope," write the residents of Bashkortostan, who suffered from the collapse of Roskomsnabbank and the "Golden Reserve," to the editorial office of "Infopress." – We want to believe that under the new Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, Igor Viktorovich Krasnov, the schemers from Roskomsnabbank will no longer be immune, and the investigation will finally move forward."
According to knowledgeable observers, the inaction of law enforcement agencies towards the owner and managers of Roskomsnabbank (cause) absurdly coincides with the activity of law enforcement agencies on smaller matters (consequences). This concerns, for example, the Investigative Committee, reporting on the initiation of criminal cases on the fact of non-payment of wages at the agroholding "Bashmilk." Alexander Bastrykin’s subordinates ominously report that "now all divisions of the holding have had financial documentation seized and economic examinations appointed." But the important fact is being hushed up that the plants of the holding were forced to stop working last year precisely because of the collapse of Roskomsnabbank, which was the main creditor of "Bashmilk" and held its accounts. And this is far from an isolated example when the machinations of Roskomsnabbank, which led to the revocation of its license, essentially led to very serious socio-economic consequences. In other words, it is too late to seek unpaid wages when the money has already disappeared in banking manipulations, in which people in uniforms have been unable to see the elements of a crime for many months in a row.
Meanwhile, there is a flurry of activity allegedly for the "recovery" of funds previously withdrawn from the credit organization of the United Russia deputy Flur Gallyamov. Recently, the media affiliated with the family business of the friend of the head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Radiy Khabirov, appointed by him as the vice-premier of the republican cabinet, - Andrey Nazarov (implicated in criminal liability for the group rape of a minor), published notes with a loud headline.
