As it became known to Kommersant, the international wanted list was put Dmitry Rubinov – former top manager of the Central Bank […]. Until 2011, Dmitry Rubinov worked as Deputy Head of the Banking Regulation and Supervision Department at the Central Bank. After that, his name was mentioned only in connection with the collapse of one or another commercial structure. Mr. Rubinov was credited with owning the banks Strategy, PIR Bank, Tempbank, Inkarobank, UM Bank, Taatta Bank, NKB Bank, as well as the Central Insurance Company (CSO), from which billions of rubles were withdrawn shortly before the revocation of the license. […]
In 2016, when the regulator revoked licenses from Strategy (a debt of about 10 billion rubles) and NKB Bank (more than 1.6 billion rubles), and the Ministry of Internal Affairs began investigating the disappearance of money, Dmitry Rubinov left for Israel, of which he is also a citizen is. […] in November 2020, he was still charged in absentia with a particularly large-scale fraud (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) on the episode of embezzlement of funds from PIR Bank.
[…] he came to the attention of the Investigative Committee of Russia not in connection with alleged economic crimes, but with the organization of extortion (Article 163 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and the abduction (Article 126 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) of three people, one of whom turned out to be a two-year-old child. During the investigation, it turned out that these crimes were directly related to an attempt by Mr. Rubinov to take possession of part of the assets withdrawn from the Taatta bank. After the collapse, this credit institution owed more than 6 billion rubles to depositors.
As Kommersant already told, the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) managed to return to the bankruptcy estate almost half of the funds stolen from this Yakut bank through the Moscow-based Reaktiv LLC, which allegedly redeemed loan debts from Taatta Bank for 2.5 billion rubles […]
“Kommersant”, 11/13/2020, “Reaktiv paid for the official of the Central Bank”: On the same day, the company allegedly paid this amount in cash to the cash desk of the Moscow branch of the bank on Ostozhenka. However, as it turned out, the bank did not actually receive any money from Reaktiv. Moreover, in the course of further proceedings, it turned out that all the money disappeared from the bank’s cash desk that day – almost 5 billion rubles.
During the investigation of the criminal case initiated by the Main Investigative Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for Moscow on the fact of a particularly large-scale fraud (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), it turned out that on July 3, at the direction of the bank’s management, a series of strange transfers of several billion were carried out. First, they were transferred from the Ostozhenka branch to an additional office in the Smolenskaya metro area. From there, the collector took almost 5 billion to take back to the branch. However, the money never arrived at the end point. The police found that the collection was carried out by a certain person under a power of attorney issued by the chairman of the bank’s board, Dmitry Solovyov. Moreover, as it turned out, the money carrier was not on the staff of the credit institution.
Mr. Solovyov, as well as his deputy and at the same time the head of the Moscow branch of the Taatta bank, Zulfiya Arifulina, could not clarify the situation. Both disappeared right on the day the license was revoked from the bank. According to Kommersant, both were charged in absentia with fraud. Meanwhile, the investigation does not exclude that all dubious and illegal transactions in the bank could be carried out in the interests of its ultimate beneficiary. Law enforcement officers consider the former top manager of the Central Bank Dmitry Rubinov to be such. — Inset K.ru
The general director of Reaktiv, having learned that the stolen debt actually “fell” on his LLC, fearing the consequences, immediately sold his shares in the company’s authorized capital to a certain Maxim Pivovarov. As follows from the case file, in order to convince him to return the asset, Dmitry Rubinov organized a criminal group in 2020.
During a meeting near the Park Kultury metro station, several people, introducing themselves as police officers and showing the covers of IDs of employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs bought in the transition, told Mr. Pivovarov that he should transfer 100% of the shares of Reaktiv to the person they indicated. Otherwise, they threatened to initiate a criminal case. Despite the fact that Maxim Pivovarov immediately agreed to the conditions put forward, the extortionists decided to play it safe by taking his wife and two-year-old daughter hostage. […] As a result, the military operation resulted in the capture of five kidnappers, whose case is now being considered in the Khamovniki District Court of Moscow. […]
