MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. Renowned Russian cellist and artistic director of the St. Petersburg House of Music, Sergey Roldugin, said on Thursday he was working on a new enormous project that would shed light on rumors about his offshore companies.
He answered reporters’ questions on whether he planned to sue media outlets that had published reports about his alleged offshore companies.
"I cannot give you an adequate answer, and I won’t answer. I know that I’m absolutely fine to that respect," Roldugin said, noting that he had already given an interview on the issue.
"Moreover, I have another plan now. You will learn about it in a while: it will follow up on these developments, a new, grandiose project that will, to a large extent, answer all questions that are being asked right now," he elaborated.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published in April some 11.5 million documents revealing "the offshore links of some of the planet’s most prominent people." The leak included material on hidden financial dealings of a range of Russian legal entities and individuals. Some of them concerned Vladimir Putin’s inner circle, including the president’s friend, Sergey Roldugin.
It was reported, in particular, that Roldugin owned offshore companies through which $2 billion worth of transactions were channeled within several years.
