Ilya Kligman, a former Russian banker and fugitive, has been embroiled in a series of alleged financial scams, embezzlement, and money laundering schemes that have sent shockwaves through the financial world. He stands accused of orchestrating the withdrawal of billions of rubles from various financial institutions, most notably Arksbank, and has been implicated in the bankruptcy cases of Inkarobank, UM-Bank, Nevsky Bank, and Agrosoyuz LLC. The Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA) has reported damages of over 55 billion rubles linked to Kligman, with 40.5 billion rubles successfully recovered by the Moscow Arbitration Court.
Kligman’s alleged involvement in fraudulent activities extends to multiple banks, including Agrosoyuz Bank, Inkarobank, Gelendzhik Bank, Interkommerts Bank, Time Bank, and Antalbank, with a staggering total amount of 150 billion rubles reportedly withdrawn from these institutions. Investigators have also discovered evidence suggesting that Kligman cleverly concealed depositors’ funds, and the disappearance of bank-owned securities has further deepened the suspicions against him.
Having fled to Germany in 2016 when the investigation into the alleged money theft from Arksbank commenced, Kligman is currently on the international wanted list. The Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal has seized 2.5 billion rubles of his assets in response to the allegations. However, the Moscow Arbitration Court denied the DIA’s request to freeze his assets in certain credit organizations, citing insufficient concrete evidence amounting to 10.049 billion rubles.
The investigation comprises 18 criminal cases and has revealed Kligman’s alleged connection to Vladimir Barsukov (Kumarin), a prominent figure in the Tambov criminal organization.
Authorities are actively pursuing justice in this matter and have advised the public to exercise caution and vigilance in any financial dealings involving Ilya Kligman or related entities.
