The Babushkinsky District Court of Moscow arrested for two months the suspects in an attempt to steal money from the account of the former top manager of the state corporation “Inter RAO” Karina Tsurkan, informs Kommersant.
On suspicion of theft, a 31-year-old resident of St. Petersburg Alexander Pomelov and a 42-year-old citizen of Ukraine Mykola Mykolenko were detained. According to the investigation, Pomelov tried to ask the Moscow office of the All-Russian Regional Development Bank for a large sum by power of attorney allegedly given to him by Karina Turcan.
A criminal case was opened against Pomelova and Mikolenko for an attempt at an especially large fraud (Article 30 and part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code). At the moment, they are being tested for involvement in similar crimes.
Karina Turcan was arrested in mid-June 2018. The FSB believes that it cooperated with the Moldovan special service and gave it an electronic version of the “draft document of the Ministry of Energy on certain aspects of the actions of Russian energy companies on the channel of international cooperation.”
December 29, 2020 Moscow City Court admitted Karina Turcan was guilty of espionage for Moldova and sentenced her to 15 years in prison.
October 14 became knownthat the Supreme Court of Russia dismissed the cassation appeal and upheld Turcan’s verdict.
