On this day 19 years ago, on May 6, 2004, a search was conducted in the central office of the oil company Yukos. As it was reported, “investigators spent several hours in the premises of Yukos and withdrew several bags of documents, in particular, from the working office of Alexander Temerko, a vice president of the company. However, the investigation said that, during the procedural actions, only three documents were ceased that were of interest for the investigation.

The investigative actions in the office of Alexander Temerko, the vice-president of the Yukos Board of Directors, were connected with one of numerous episodes of the criminal activity of the Oil Company NK Yukos, in particular, with embezzlement and efforts to transfer to offshores 19.76% shares of the company “Yeniseyneftegaz”.

The investigation found out that this affair in 2002-2003 was being pulled off by an organized criminal group, members of which were:

- vice-president of Yukos Alexander Temerko (organizer, planning);

- vice president of Yukos Yuri Beylin (operator);

- head of the department of corporative finances Oleg Sheyko (operator);

- vice president of the asset management company “Yukos EP” Sergey Petelin (operator);

- Ivan Kolesnikov, law bureau “ALM-Feldmans”.


According to the investigation, members of the organized criminal group planned “to capture the right of strategic and operative management of the JSC “Yeniseyneftegaz” and its subsidiaries that had licenses to exploit oil fields and to extract oil, to build boreholes of all directions and to exploit productive facilities for oil”. Yet, the affair was exposed, and a criminal investigation against the swindlers was started in 2004, from which they escaped to London.

In May 2005, the Office of the Prosecutor General of Russia filed a judgement in absentia against Alexander Nemerko. He was accused of embezzlement by way of fraud, falsification of proofs in a civil case, and of documents forging. Alexander Temerko himself acted according to the narrative prescribed by lawyers, saying that the case had “a political character”, and that was why he was being persecuted. In London, the case of Temerko was taken up by the “independent” special representative of PACE Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, who repeated her fantasies that had been dictated earlier by PR-managers and lobbyists of “Menatep”.

“On the basis of false “political assumptions, and they are false because, within the framework of the investigation in Strasbourg, PACE had not found any “political motives” in Yukos case, Temerko, nevertheless, received a status of political refugee. Later, thanks to especially generous donations, he became a subject of Great Britain. This is a typical career of a wheeler-dealer with a mentality of potential defector”, notes the website Prigovor.ru.
