He is suspected of waste of 7.5 billion rubles of Yugra bank. But the story with Yugra happened not yesterday. Why Hotin was arrested right now? Election in Basmanny Court of a measure of restraint concerning the majority shareholder of Yugra bank Alexey Hotin suspected of waste. Photo: Sergey Vedyashkin/AGN Moscow sent on April 19 Basmanny Court of Moscow under house arrest of the ex-owner of Yugra suspected of waste of 7.5 billion rubles of bank. Crash of Yugra became unprecedented both on scale, and on some other circumstances in due time, but detained Hotin only nearly two years later. What can stand behind it? At my private judgment, it is the best of all the Central Bank reacted to Hotin's business. The regulator just reminded that it six times addressed to law enforcement agencies concerning activity of Yugra bank, its shareholders and possible withdrawal of funds, only for last year wrote to the Ministry of Internal Affairs two times. No reaction existed. Really, had to be when the Central Bank when in the failed bank found "hole" in 143 billion rubles when payments to investors exceeded 170 billion rubles addresses law enforcement authorities and became record in the history of the Russian banking sector. What is interesting, Alexey Hotin from anybody did not disappear. He did not assimilate to the colleagues bankers who shortly before revocation of licenses felt insuperable desire to leave from Moscow to London. No, Hotin remained in Russia where continued to be engaged in business — it has a lot of elite real estate, including Moscow hotel in a step from Red Square, oil business and so on. Why right now? Perhaps, it is worth remembering that Hotin and his father Yury with whom they together did earlier business — natives of Belarus. They arrived to Russia in the 1990th and gradually began to buy up assets here. Nowadays the relations of Moscow and Minsk the most intense for all contemporary history of the relations of the brotherly countries. The situation is commented by the CEO of National Energy Security Fund Konstantin Simonov. Konstantin Simonov the CEO of National Energy Security Fund "Initially the activity of the father and son Hotinykh was connected with the president of Belarus Lukashenko. In general, one of versions is that Hotin was engaged in investment of means of political elite of Belarus in Russia. Well and, respectively, political cover of the business was conducted on this line too. The answer to a question why right now there was this story, very simple too. Because right now we observe a sharp complication of our political and economic relations with Belarus. I think that Hotin just did not count change of the political moment". But media reported that Hotinykh had a strong support and in Russia. For example, Forbes called the former speaker of the Duma and the former head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Boris Gryzlov and also one of the influential staff of FSB. One of sources told Vedomosti that it is possible to call a proverb about hundred rubles and hundred friends a line from the business plan Hotinykh. Were allegedly ringing to bankers who were asked to give to
