In September, The Bell wrote that Abyzov, through his representatives from the pre-trial detention center, was trying to negotiate a settlement agreement with Alfa Bank and repay the debt in exchange for resolving criminal claims. The negotiations on the part of Abyzov were attended by his associate in RAO UES Leonid Melamed and Abyzov's long-time partner, billionaire Iskandar Makhmudov. So far, there is no agreement on a settlement, but negotiations are ongoing, The Bell said.
What is in Russia. In Russia, the first charge against Abyzov was seized on his accounts and property in the amount of about 27 billion rubles. It was about 437 million rubles in the accounts, two land plots, two residential buildings, three apartments, a parking place, etc. Part of the assets was thawed by court decision: Abyzov’s defense sought this, insisting that with initial claims of 4 billion rubles, freezing property worth several times more was inappropriate. Lenders are sure that Abyzov will have enough property to pay off debts, said two interlocutors of The Bell. Since 2011, Abyzov has been included in the Forbes richest Russians list, but his fortune is getting smaller every year - in 2011, he occupied the 76th place in the list with a fortune of $ 1.2 billion, in 2018 - already 162nd place with a fortune of $ 600 million.
