SAMARA, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. There are grounds to institute a criminal case against the Commercial Volzhsky Social Bank headquartered in Samara, the country’s leading industrial center in the Volga region, the deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia, Mikhail Sukhov, told reporters on Monday.
The first deputy director-general of the Deposit Insurance Agency, Valery Miroshnikov, said funds had been withdrawn from the bank accounts. “During the bank’s liquidation we will search for assets that had been withdrawn and will work with law enforcers,” he said.
Earlier on Monday, the Central Bank of Russia revoked a license for carrying out banking operations of the Commercial Volzhsky Social Bank.
“We tried to keep this bank effective and we were interested in this. The budget funds were hanging there, but the situation turned out to be much more complicated than that in Solidarnost commercial bank,” Samara region governor Nikolai Merkushin told reporters. “When investors studied what a hole was there, it became clear that we would be unable to make it viable.”
According to different estimates, the Commercial Volzhsky Social Bank held around 1.8 billion rubles of different budget funds, including money of the regional guarantee fund for entrepreneurship support, the Samara Region Development Corporation and other regional structures.
On November 26, the Commercial Volzhsky Social Bank suspended its operation without naming reasons.
The Chairman of the Board of the Commercial Volzhsky Social Bank, Valery Kuchkanov, was found dead with a gunshot wound in the head in his house in Samara on November 20. The investigation is underway.
