The Main Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation apprehended three former staff members of Commercial Bank “Yedinstvenny” LLC: Chairman of the Board Nikita Shestakov; his first deputy Pavel Sychev; and Head of the Credit Department Stanislav Yalymov. They are suspected of committing an offence under Part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code of Russia (embezzlement on a large scale committed by an organized group).
