ASV is the only victim in this criminal case. Charges of “misappropriation or embezzlement in especially large size” (part 4 of article 160 of the criminal code) were brought against the former Senator from Tuva and the main beneficiary of Mezhprombank Sergey Pugachev, the ex-Chairman of the Board of MPB Alexander Didenko and Amountso that from 2004 to 2008 he held the post of Deputy Minister of culture, after which he headed the company “OPK development” of Pugachev.

As pointed out by the protection of Amenca, lawyers never argued that “Pugachev did not commit embezzlement of funds of the BCH”.
