He is suspected of fraud on a very large scale under Part 4 of Article 159 of the RF Penal Code.

Former first vice-presdient of Tatfondbank Ramil Nasyrov, 34, director of OOO New Petrochemistry Ramil Safin, 52 and director of OOO Royal Time Group Yelena Leushina, 49 were detained on 15 March 2017 on suspicion of having been involved in the crime.
