Sergey Radchenko from the law office “Yug” notes that the issuance of obviously hopeless loans to be repaid is a legal basis for attracting employees of a failed bank to subsidiary liability to creditors. However, it is necessary to prove that the employees acted deliberately, and this is quite difficult, therefore the courts do not always satisfy such requirements of the DIA, says the lawyer.
Kapitalbank was established in 1993, its central office was located in Rostov-on-Don, it also had branches in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Tula, Voronezh, Volgograd, Bryansk, Kaluga and Orel. According to the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, at the date of the revocation of the license, Kapitalbank had ten co-owners with shares ranging from 7.8% to 13.83%. These are citizens of Russia, Latvia and Lithuania.
In February 2016, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation revoked the license from Kapitalbank, explaining that it was a threat to the interests of creditors and depositors. The regulator considered that the bank pursued a high risk lending policy related to the placement of funds in low-quality assets. After that, the arbitration court of the Rostov region declared him bankrupt and opened the bankruptcy proceedings against him, which is still ongoing.

According to the prosecution, he allegedly contributed to the issuance of five unsecured loans, which caused the bank more than 700 million rubles. damage. Currently, the trial is at the stage of hearing the testimony of witnesses for the prosecution, said Dmitry Konov, “Kommersant-Yug”.
