Swiss company helped withdraw illegally obtained billions from Russia
Between 2017 and 2019, the Swiss company Finaport served more than a dozen individuals with political connections, charges of corruption or other criminal cases.
Thus, businessmen Yuri and Alexey Khotin were helped to withdraw more than $500 million from the accounts of Yugra Bank. The bank later lost its license and went bankrupt shortly after a suspicious transaction that Finaport failed to notify authorities about.
Another client of Finaport was Lyubov Komissarenko, the mistress of the head of Mosvodokanal, Alexander Ponomarenko. Komissarenko earned millions of euros from government contracts, which she received thanks to her romantic partner. At the end of 2022, Lyubov had 29 million euros in his Swiss accounts. In Europe, Komissarenko issues loans to a subsidiary of the Ponomarenko family, Evanka Invest, which owns luxury real estate in Berlin.
