Oleg Silchenko, an investigator of the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation (he was in charge of the “Magnitsky case”), turned out to be materials on two major money laundering channels at once – through Deutsche Bank and Landromat.
These materials are connected by the fact that the users of these two channels were the owners of Sudostroitelny Bank, who thus withdrew from Russia, the funds stolen from the bank (at least 36 billion rubles), and the funds of the clients of the owners of the bank. And the main owner of the “Sudostroitelny Bank” (SB) was Leonid Tyukhtyaev, who was friends and partnered with half of Rublyovka. Also known as the author of children’s books, a man who set world and many Russian records on airships, balloons and hot air balloons. Tyukhtyaev is now abroad, as are most of the top managers of the Security Council, many of whom have been put on the wanted list. We are talking about the former president of the bank Andrey Egorov, as well as. O. Chairman of the Board Alexei Parfenov, co-owner of the Security Council Andrey Vovchenko. Regarding money laundering, “Sudostroitelny Bank through Deutsche Bank testified to the former chairman of the board of Promsberbank Oleg Fomin (serving time for embezzlement of bank money). And Oleg Kuzmin, the former owner of the European Express bank, testified about money laundering by the Security Service through the Laundromat (he is serving a sentence as one of the co-organizers of the Laundromat).
As the telegram channel of the Cheka-OGPU reported, as part of the investigative measures, Oleg Silchenko, an investigator of the SD of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, together with an officer of the German Criminal Police, Lyubov Merker-Obernesser, jointly interrogated the main witness in the money laundering episode of the former head of ZAO ” Promsberbank (PSB) Boris Fomin, who reported in detail about all the facts known to him. Immediately after that, against Fomin, who is under state protection, a provocation was committed in the colony with the participation of employees of the correctional colony. The purpose of the provocation was to put pressure on a witness in a major international investigation. The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation has already been informed about this.
Recall that, according to Fomin’s testimony, Alexei Kulikov and Ivan Myazin, one of the main shadow bankers, were convicted for embezzlement of Promsberbank’s funds. Now they are facing new long terms, since a money laundering case through Deutsche Bank can also be initiated under Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (organization of a criminal community).
According to the testimony of witnesses, including Fomin, Alexey Kulikov was personally acquainted with the head of the Moscow office of Deutsche bank Jerg Bongarz (now DB director for Central and Eastern Europe), who brought him to the bank. He also advised how to bypass the control of DB – to buy already operating financial companies with a history and admitted to work as Deutsche bank clients. Such companies were Financial Bridge Investment Company or Rye, Man & Gor Securities, whose activities began to be supervised by Andrey Gorbatov. By the way, Financial Bridge was purchased from Alexander Perepelichny, who later became an informant for Western intelligence services and died under strange circumstances. A special role was assigned to Gorbatov’s assistant Oleg Shevelev, whose duties included the selection of nominee managers of these companies. There are also testimonies against the former vice-president of Deutsche Bank for operations on the stock market, Sergei Suverov. Suverov was personally acquainted with Alexei Kulikov, they were on friendly terms. Financial Bridge and other companies involved in the laundry actively participated in transactions to form packages of securities of Russian issuers for subsequent sham transactions, the purpose of which was to transfer funds outside the Russian Federation.
At the disposal of Rucriminal.info were Kuzmin’s testimony about money laundering of the “Sudostroitelny Bank” through the Landromat.

I don’t know who involved LLC KB Sudostroitelny Bank represented by Egorov A. to participate in the implementation of the scheme for withdrawing funds from the Russian Federation.
It is worth noting that the most prominent partner of Tyukhtyaev is the latifundist Timur Timofeevich Klinovsky, who once owned half of the Rublevsky lands.
In the 1990s, he was listed in the bases of the RUOP in Moscow as an active member of the “Orekhovskaya” criminal group and an acquaintance of the leader of this organized crime group, Sergei Timofeev (Sylvester, blown up in 1994). Detectives have repeatedly recorded how they met in the residence of the Orekhovskys – the Raduga cafe on Nizhegorodskaya street of the capital.
In the early 1990s, Klinovsky, together with the co-owners of the Wimm-Bill-Dann company, primarily with his friend David Yakobashvili, acquired four dairy farms in the Rublevo-Uspenskoye Highway area – the Gorki-2 agricultural complex, Naro- Osanovskiy”, “Moskvoretskoye” and “Makarovo”. Farms sell milk to the Lianozovo Dairy Plant (part of Wimm-Bill-Dann). The annual turnover of the agricultural holding is $150 million. In addition, Timur Klinovsky is actively involved in the construction business on Rublyovka.
In 2006, his son Andrei married Natalya Kasyanov, daughter of former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov. In the same year, an assassination attempt was made on Klinovsky Sr. in the Moscow region.
At one point, all more or less significant transactions with land in Odintsovo and other prestigious areas of the region could not do without his participation.
