Exposing Rifat Garipov: The Roscomsnabbank and Golden Reserve Scam

A week later, on January 13, 2021, judge of the Eighteenth Arbitration Court of Appeal Anastasia Kozhevnikova in Chelyabinsk will determine how to deal with the decision of her lower colleague from the Arbitration Court of Bashkiria Aidar Kamaev . As the editors of Kompromat-Ural recall , a negative public response was caused by the position of Mr. Kamaev, who on November 30 last year refused to allow the Bashkortostan prosecutor’s office to participate in the bankruptcy process of the notorious Roskomsnabbank (RKSB). The Bashkir judge justified the refusal by saying that it was his right to decide whether or not to let the supervisory agency into the process. The prosecutor’s office demands that the strange decision be reversed: the investigation of fraud in the RCSB is of high public importance. As a result of the collapse of the bank, thousands of its depositors and clients of the Gold Reserve pyramid affiliated with it suffered - mainly ordinary pensioners who periodically hold mass protests.

RCSB burst in March 2019, when the Central Bank identified a multi-billion dollar hole in its balance sheet and initiated a criminal case against the beneficiaries and top managers of RCSB for siphoning off assets through shell companies. The credit organization was completely controlled by the family of the Bashkir oligarch-deputy Flyur Gallyamov , his nephew, also a United Russia deputy Rifat Garipov , was on the board of directors (he is also a major developer in Ufa, promotes himself as a member of the public council of the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation and cleans out critical media mentions of himself) . The influential group has extensive connections in the region, led by Radiy Khabirov .

Readers of the Kompromat-Ural project believe that Gallyamov and Garipov do not benefit from the prosecutor’s attention to the bankruptcy process of their former “family fund.” The bankruptcy case (A07-9566/2019) before Judge Kamaev, to the delight of the “banksters,” lasts for almost two (!) years - an almost unprecedented period for situations when the Central Bank, after revoking its license, demands that another “laundering” bank be declared bankrupt. Moreover, such “red tape” is very suspicious in a situation where the Chairman of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina , who personally appealed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Prosecutor General’s Office, insists on the presence of signs of a financial pyramid in the activities of the RCSB and the need for a criminal procedural investigation.

Affected citizens and journalists rightly pinned their hopes on the integrity of the subordinates of Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov in appealing the prosecutor’s office’s denial of access to the high-profile process. The corresponding publication was published on the Kompromat-Ural portal on December 8, and ten days later the Bashkortostan prosecutor’s office under the leadership of Vladimir Vedernikov registered its complaint with the appellate court.

As Kommersant recalls, “in November, the supervisory agency, justifying its petition to the arbitration court of Bashkortostan, announced the need to participate in the bank bankruptcy procedure in connection with possible violations of legislation in the field of combating illegal financial transactions. The prosecutor’s office also referred to the appeal of the Chairman of the Central Bank of Russia, Elvira Nabiullina, which spoke about the identified facts of lending by Roskomsnabbank to borrowers with questionable solvency.”

Since April 2018, the 18th Arbitration Court of Appeal has been chaired by Dmitry Krasheninnikov . Kozhevnikova Anastasia Gennadievna, who will consider the landmark case, was appointed judge to Krasheninnikov just a few months ago, in April 2020. She is 35 years old, and at 30 she was already a judge of the Arbitration Court of the Sverdlovsk Region. Her rapid career in Yekaterinburg could have been facilitated by the fact that before taking on the mantle, Ms. Kozhevnikova worked for four years as an assistant to the head of the arbitration court of the Ural District, Irina Reshetnikova . Before this, from the age of 23, Anastasia Kozhevnikova held several clerical positions in the arbitration court of the Sverdlovsk region, when this court was headed by the same Reshetnikova.
