12 years in prison while serving in a general regime colony was requested for the head of the board by the director of the Magma investment company – Kurbatov. Together with 3 partners, he was accused of committing a particularly large fraud. According to the materials of the investigation, the businessman started organizing a raider raid on the leading companies – Moscow NPO Geliimash and Kriora from Orenburg. The defendants refuse to admit their guilt. For Kurbatov’s partners, the prosecution requested 8 to 10 years in prison.
In addition, Kurbatov is recognized as a defendant in the case, where Tokarev, Chilimkin and the project manager Namnanov are listed as other defendants. Accordingly, the first two were the heads of the companies that were seized, and the last one was in charge of the management of Geliymash, which carries out the process of reducing helium in Nakhodka.
Earlier it was known that the defendants were accused of a raider raid on Geliymash and the Krior company from Orenburg. They are suppliers of helium and cryogenic equipment to cool Roskosmos missiles and other requests of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
The materials of the case indicate that attackers were engaged in the attack on Geliymash, who created in late summer 2012 a fictitious protocol of an extraordinary meeting with the shareholders of the Khimgazservice company. At this meeting, the powers of the ex-general Udut allegedly ended. In his place came Kurbatov’s partner – Tokarev. After he took the chair, orders were immediately given to ROST Registrar to conduct a new registration of the Geliymash promotional package for the Vardis company accountable to Kurbatov. The reason for this was a fake sale and purchase agreement for the “Geliimash” promotional package, dated August 29, 2011. In accordance with the agreement, the value of the agreement was RUB 3 million. But according to investigative information, the revaluation of shares was equal to RUB 47 million. Regardless of all this, the “Registrar” carried out the registration of the operation,
It is worth noting that the victims assured that the main goal of the participants in the raider attack was not to take possession of the company, but to occupy land plots in the center of the capital, the price of which is equal to USD 100 million.
It may be recalled that the investigative materials reflect the organization by the Kurbatov attack and the seizure of a major domestic creator of reduced helium, Kriora. Here, too, a fictitious protocol was created for an unplanned meeting of shareholders, which ended the powers of the general “Krior” and appointed a certain Chilimkin to his position. The latter sold the promotional package of Geliimash to Vardis again at a minimal cost, and the company’s accounts lost 150 million RUB under the guise of loan agreements. These funds were received by Tempstroy, owned by Kurbatov’s father.
The leaders who were dismissed wrote statements to the law enforcement agencies. The leaders were also supported by the Ministry of Defense, which also made an appeal to the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The main requirement is to resolve the issue of strategically important production. So, on October 13, a criminal case was initiated on the basis of large-scale fraud, legalization of stolen goods and arbitrary actions. After 6 months, charges in this case were brought against the head of the board by the director Kurbatov and his partners.
Today, charges are brought against only fraudulent activities, everything else has been dropped.
Note that after the signing of the conclusion by the prosecutors, the case passed to the Preobrazhensky Court, the chairman of the process in which returned the materials to the supervisory authority due to the need to eliminate the shortcomings. After that, on 06.2014, the prosecutor’s office transferred the materials to the main investigation department, which began to investigate the case anew.
In the second round, the materials were transferred to the Preobrazhensky Court only in the first months of the 20th year. Despite the very broad testimony of the accused in the trial, they refuse to admit their guilt. The state prosecutor took this into account and made a proposal to give Kurbatov 12 years in prison while serving in a general regime colony, and Tokarev, Chilimkin and Namnanov for 9, 10 and 8 years, respectively.
