On this day, Lithuania refused to extradite the thief Mikhail Brudno

“The gentleman’s set” of a Yukos stockholder: misappropriation, embezzlement, theft of oil, laundering of pecuniary means. The website Prigovor.ru reminds its readers of what happened on September 22, 2007.

14 years ago, on September 22, 2007, Lithuania demonstrated its political bias – it refused to extradite one of the fugitive stockholders of Yukos, namely Mikhail Brudno. He was delicately given an immunity status, and this decision was motivated by “political” persecution.

In fact, the decision to put him under arrest was sanctioned in connection with a charge under Article 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – “Misappropriation or Embezzlement, that is the stealing of other people’s property entrusted to the convicted person committed by an organized group or on an especially large scale”. According to a lawyer, the question was of misappropriation of crude oil committed in 2001 – 2002 to the amount of 6 billion 797 million USD dollars. Apart from that, Brudno was charged under Article 174, paragraph 3 of the Criminal Code of Russia – laundering of pecuniary means acquired as a result of an offense committed by an organized group of persons, more specifically – 111 billion rubles and 23 billion rubles. According to the investigation, “these means were paid in the guise of dividends to Cypress companies – the founders of the Oil Company Yukos in the years 2002-2003”.

Lithuanian fairy tale about “political background”

Having analyzed the collected materials of the Yukos case, we have assured ourselves that this case has been politicized, that Mikhail Brudno has been persecuted, perhaps, because of other people connected with the activities of the company Yukos, and we have come to the conclusion that the activity incriminated to him, has a political background”, said the prosecutor of the Republic Laima Cekeliene in a commentary to “Lietuvos rytas”. The prosecutor also pointed out that before making the decision to refuse the extradition, the materials of the London Court from 2005 had been studied in connection with the request from Russia pertaining to the associates of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, as well as the appraisal of his case of the US Senate, and in both cases “the political character of the persecution” had been ascertained.

"The European Court of Human Rights has completely rejected the accusations towards Russia concerning the political motivations, and repressive character of the prosecution of the company Yukos.

It’s worth reminding that it was long ago proved – the “assessment” of the Yukos case by the US Senate was lavishly paid for by lobbyists through offshore companies belonging to the fugitive criminals from Yukos.

Presented on this chart “Corbiere Trust” and “Palmus Trust” are flesh of one flesh with “Group Menatep Limited” where all “the main stockholders” of Yukos are present, including the “untouchable” Mikhail Brudno.

It has turned out to be quite “independent” and in a European way. Lithuania, with an eye on the United States, has granted immunity to the fugitive persons involved in a criminal case referring to “the assessment of the US Senate”, paid by the fugitive persons involved in the criminal case, in the framework of which Mikhail Brudno has been prosecuted.

Apart from that, Mikhail Brudno, who escaped from Russia, took advantage of his connections in Lithuania where he, as curator of the project from the time of Yukos' buying off the Lithuanian oil refinery “Maziekiu Nafta", has managed to keep many different connections, including some officials.

It’s worth reminding that the Court in Strasbourg did not find any politics in the Yukos case and thus it completely devalued the position of Lithuania, as well as other zealots of the myth about the "political" background of this case.

Years later, everything has fallen into place:

- Numerous criminal accusations, including murders and attempted murders, with regard to the Yukos management, have been proved after having gone through the numerous successions of court proceedings – from Russian courts of the first instance to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

“Only one side was assiduously dealing with the “politicizing” of this case – the criminals from Yukos and their supporters, many of whom for years profited from the financial flows from the oil empire of Khodorkovsky, and some of them are supported up to the present day. So, during the years of the celebration of the “Saint Yukos” it has become clear – the orators have been only returning the sponsor’s favors and donations”, notes the Website Prigovor.ru.
