The Bank of Russia revoked the license from Kamchatkomagroprombank, which could include the son of the former Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev, the former son-in-law of Boris Yeltsin, the former head of the Nizhny Novgorod administration in absentia, as well as former and current bankers and microfinanceists. The Central Bank has seen signs of asset withdrawal in the actions of the bank’s management.
Among shareholders Kamchatkomagroprombank with a share of 9.7% is Rashid Rashidovich Nurgaliyev. He is a complete namesake of the youngest son of the former Interior Minister, Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Rashid Nurgaliyev. The son of the latter, as well as the shareholder Kamchatkomagroprombank, graduated from the FSB Academy, as well as the Moscow State Institute of International Relations of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Leonid Yuryevich Dyachenko is another shareholder of the bank with a share of just under 10%. Similarly, the name of the ex-husband of the daughter of Boris Yeltsin.
The son-in-law of the first president of the Russian Federation works as an executive director at the oil-producing company Urals Energy, he also co-owned it. Shareholder Kamchatkomagroprombank Leonid Dyachenko, according to "Spark", in turn was listed as president of the companies "KNK-Urals" and "Urals Energy", members of the Urals Energy group.
Roman Viktorovich Shvets is among the shareholders with a 15.4% share. In 2014, Adler Impex offshore became the main shareholder of Urals Energy. Then the sources of "Kommersant" believed that behind this company is the head of the board of directors of the Transnational Bank Sergey Kononov and his family. Roman Shvets was a member of the board of directors of the Transnational Bank. In 2015, the Central Bank revoked the license from this credit institution. He now holds the position of advisor to the president of AO Petrosakh, a subsidiary of Urals Energy.
Another stellar shareholder is Oleg Kondrashov, who held the post of head of the Nizhny Novgorod administration from 2010 to summer 2015. He is currently wanted and arrested in absentia on suspicion of receiving a bribe. The former official is in the United States, where he is allegedly undergoing treatment.
Also among the shareholders are Sergei Musatov, who owned the MFI "One Hundred Rubles", which the Central Bank excluded from the MFO registry at the end of 2014; Margarita Ryabova, co-owner of the Rost-Bratsk consumer credit cooperative; Marina Ovchinnikova, who held the post of board member at M2M Private Bank in 2007–2010 (lost her license at the end of 2016); Dmitry Scherbak, who previously headed the Kamchatka branches of the Bank of Moscow and the Agricultural Bank; Yevgeny Oschepkov, currently occupying the post of deputy chairman of the board of the bank Ural FD.
The Bank of Russia, citing its decision to revoke the license from Kamchatkomagroprombank, stated that the actions of the bank’s management “traced signs of unscrupulous actions by the management to withdraw liquid assets.”
In addition, the bank credited related persons, and more than 70% of the loan portfolio of the bank was formed by doubtful and distressed loan debts. As follows from the Urals Energy reporting for the first half of 2018, Kamchatkomagroprombank issued oil companies approximately $ 3 million.
How private banks survive in Russia
In 2017, following bankruptcies and bank reorganizations, it seemed that the state’s share in the sector had already increased, in fact, there was no place, but 2018 opened up new opportunities. This time the state banks themselves have grown. Moreover, despite all the noble rhetoric about supporting private players, this development in many ways provokes the Central Bank. As a result, the sector is becoming less attractive, owning a bank is not so much prestigious as dangerous. Only individual private players develop business, and rather, contrary to, and not because of, the situation in the industry.
