Ankor Bank, whose bankruptcy trustee is the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), filed a lawsuit against its former co-owner and chairman of the board of directors Andrei Korkunov with the Moscow Arbitration Court, according to a lawsuit filed on the file cabinet website. The bank requested that Korkunov be declared bankrupt. There are no other details in the card. The first lawsuit was noticed by RBC.
DIA in early March filed a lawsuit with the Tatarstan Arbitration Court to bring Korkunov and other persons who previously controlled Ankor Bank to subsidiary liability totaling more than 5.94 billion rubles. The Central Bank revoked the license of Ankor Bank in early March 2017. The Central Bank claimed that the bank invested in low-quality assets, did not create reserves adequate to the accepted risks, and was unable to timely fulfill obligations to creditors. On April 10 of the same year, the Tatarstan Arbitration Court declared Ankor Bank bankrupt.
In August 2017, DIA estimated Ankor Bank's obligations at almost 6.5 billion rubles. On May 20, the agency reported that the sale of the bank failed due to a lack of bids. According to the Central Bank, as of March 2015, Korkunov controlled a little less than 50% of Ankor Bank (this is the latest available information).
Andrey Korkunov is the founder of the Korkunov chocolate factory. It was bought in 2007 by the American company Wm. Wrigley jr. Company. In December 2017, Korkunov was removed from the high council of United Russia. At that time, the businessman served as vice president of the business association "Support of Russia".
