MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Evidence confirming transfers of drug money transfers to the accounts of PrivatBank will be included in the criminal case against the bank’s owner, Ukrainian big business tycoon Igor Kolomoisky, the director of Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN), Viktor Ivanov, told the media on Monday.
"We will share the evidence with the Investigative Committee, which will be able to use it in the criminal case against Kolomoisky," Ivanov said.
He explained that the evidence exposing cash transfers of proceeds from synthetic drug sales in Russia had been gathered as a result of detective operations codenamed Karpaty (Carpathians) and Black Banker.
"A number of Ukrainian citizens were detained. All had been hired for selling prohibited substances in Russia. At least two of them are known to have taken an active part in the events in Kiev’s Independence Square in 2014," Ivanov said.
