Sergey Ilyin was extradited from Montenegro to Russia for bringing him to criminal liability under Article 160 (4) (embezzlement, that is, the stealing of other people's property entrusted to the convicted person, committed by the person through his official position, by an organized group, on an especially large scale) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
According to the investigation, Ilyin, being the Chairman of Board of OAO KB “Troyka” (hereinafter referred to as Bank), in an organized group, selected fictitious organizations which were not carrying out real financial and business activities.
In the period from 01.08.2009 to 01.09.2009 Ilyin’s accomplices made sets of false documents for obtaining credits in the Bank by the fictitious organizations and passed them to employees of the credit division of the Bank. The accused, using his official position, approved granting the credits. Based on the concluded credit agreements, money for a total amount of 52.5 million rubles was transferred to accounts of the organizations controlled by the members of the organized group and stolen.
As Ilyin had absconded from the investigation, the measure of restriction in the form of detention was ordered for him, and he was placed on the international wanted list.
In October 2018, the Montenegro Interpol NCB informed of his detention in the territory of that state.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation sent to the competent authorities of Montenegro a request for his extradition which was granted by the Montenegrin party.
Accompanied by officers of the Interpol NCB of the MIA of Russia, Sergey Ilyin was brought to the territory of Russia.
