Searchs near Warsaw
In December last year, information appeared that Vadim Evgenievich Varshavsky was suspected of involvement in the theft of about 2.8 billion rubles from Petrocommerce Bank. This bank is part of the Otkritie financial corporation.
According to the investigation, this amount was received in 2012 as a loan for the Zlatoust Metallurgical Plant, which belonged to Varshavsky.

The essence of the claims against the entrepreneur
According to Kommersant, Varshavsky Vadim Evgenyevich was taken from his Rublev house for interrogation to the building of the Main Investigation Department of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Employees of this particular division of the Moscow police at the end of May last year opened a case on the fact of fraud in the field of lending (part 4 of article 159.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
The case file states that during 2012, unidentified persons in the management of Zlatoust Metallurgical Plant developed a plan to seize by fraud a certain amount of money from Petrocommerce Bank, which since 2015 has been structurally part of FC Otkritie.
The investigation believes that in order to obtain a loan to replenish working capital in the amount of about 2.8 billion rubles, the borrower wasprovided the bank with information that was knowingly false and unreliable. This was done under the personal guarantee of Varshavsky.
The financial statements sent to the bank did not reflect data that a loan agreement was previously concluded in the amount of 950 million US dollars with a company that is part of the Mechel Corporation, under the guarantee of the Zlatoust Metallurgical Plant.
The investigation has evidence that, having received money from the Petrocommerce bank, the Zlatoust plant did not return anything to the creditor.
Varshavsky, according to "Kommersant", confirms the facts of searches and interrogation of him as a witness. He does not consider justified the claims made by the investigating authorities, since, in his opinion, "no loan agreement was concluded." He does not understand what served as the basis for initiating this case.
Vadim Varshavsky, whose biography was also previously spoiled by a financial scandal, is the owner of a large empire of metallurgical enterprises.
At the end of 2011, a loan was received from Transcreditbank for the Guryev Metallurgical Plant (GMZ). The guarantor was Varshavsky, who is the owner of this enterprise.
In 2014, Guryev Metallurgical Plant stopped servicing the loan. In the spring of the same year, Transcreditbank filed a lawsuit, according to which the debt for the Warsawpersonal guarantee agreement amounted to approximately two billion rubles.
According to the decision of the Basmanny District Court of Moscow, which satisfied this claim, at the beginning of 2015, an arrest was made on a building in the central part of the capital, owned by Varshavsky. The area of the arrested building exceeded five hundred square meters.
In the middle of last year, based on the same court decision, the Angouleme (France) court temporarily seized the businessman's local assets. These assets include four French wine companies with an authorized capital of about 400 thousand euros, which Varshavsky owned together with his wife, as well as the Etoile 06 company (authorized capital - 1 thousand euros). This company has an apartment in Cannes, which is more than two hundred square meters, worth about two million euros.
The entrepreneur himself claims that all this property in France does not belong to him, but to his wife.
