Russian top bankers are among the newly baked Bulgarians who received golden passports through investments. These are Dmitry Kushaev – Director of Credit Suisse Moscow, Roman Nagaev – former Director of Investment Banking at the Russian bank VTB Capital, and Igor Finogenov – former director of the Eurasian Development Bank and close to power, as evidenced by his photos with former President and Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
A check in the Property Register shows that Kushaev, Nagaev and Finogenov do not own properties in Bulgaria, and a check in the Commercial Register shows that they do not own or manage companies, i.e. They don’t invest in the real economy., and have probably bought government securities or deposited money on deposit with a Bulgarian bank, as the law on Bulgarian citizenship gives opportunities.
Bulgarian – a top banker close to the Russian government
Igor Finogenov is Chairman of the Management Board of the
Eurasian Development Bank
From 2006 to 2015, having previously been an assistant to the Minister of Finance of Russia and a banker in other banks. According to
His 2015 Wikipedia page has been an adviser to the President of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a member of the Council of Foreign Investors to the President of Kazakhstan.
Finogenov received his Bulgarian passport and became a Bulgarian citizen by decree 77 of 04.06.2020 under file number 23961/2018. To date, he does not own or manage companies in Bulgaria, nor does he own real estate.
Bulgarian – Director of Credit Suisse Moscow
Dmitry Kushaev becomes CEO of
Credit Suisse Moscow
in 2016, and in 2021 he was re-elected as a member of the Board of Directors of the Bank. When he received his Bulgarian passport, he was an employee of the Swiss bank in Russia.
Kushaev became a Bulgarian citizen by Decree 26 of 12.03.2021 under file number 7361/2019. To date, he does not own or manage companies in Bulgaria, nor does he own real estate.
Bulgarian – former director of the Russian VTB Capital
Roman Nagaev, a Harvard graduate, is a former director of investment banking at the Russian bank
. The bank is known as “Putin’s bank” and in Bulgaria is represented by former Finance Minister Milen Velchev.
In parallel with his career at VTB, Nagaev was appointed to the board of directors of
(First Mortgage Company), a leading construction company in Russia, in which VTB Capital Bank is a shareholder.
There is no public information about what position Nagaev held at the time he received his Bulgarian passport. He became a Bulgarian citizen by Decree 5 of 29.01.2018, and his file was filed only a year earlier under number 5368/2017. To date, he also does not own or manage companies in Bulgaria, nor does he own real estate. No photo of him is found on the Web.
The BRRD has data on those who have received golden passports as investors and makes a journalistic study of their relations with business and politics. In the first article in the series we informed about the golden passport of Roman Savushkin
, received when he was General Director of the United Wagon Company, a structure-defining enterprise in Russia.
Щом сте стигнали дотук, вероятно вече си задавате въпроса как се финансира този журналистически проект.
От създаването си BIRD се финансираше от подаяния в нашето журналистическо чекмедже.
Но на чекмеджето му мина времето. Даже прокуратурата затвори онова Чекмедже, знаете кое…
Нашето финансиране влиза в крак с епохата. Фондонабиращата ни кампания вече се казва
Дарявай за BIRD и мятай павета в блатото с корумпирани политици и други тарикати.
Те тайно премятат пари от твоя джоб в своя. Те размятат безнаказано лукса си пред очите на всички. Няма кой да ги накаже ако се надяваш на държавата.
Мятай, за да ги накажеш ти. Да дариш за разследващите журналисти е гаранция, че гадостите, с които силните на деня те замерят, ще им се върнат.
Можеш да метнеш веднъж, за да ти олекне!
Но по-добре е да мяташ редовно всеки месец и да се чувстваш трайно удовлетворен.
А най-добре е да доведеш приятели и да мятаме редовно заедно в екип. С мощен залп!
*За кръстник на новата ни фондонабираща кампания избрахме другарката Ваня. Благодарим й за вдъхновението!
До момента имаме 391 активни месечни дарители и целим те да станат 1,000.
Събери се с приятели и мятайте заедно с BIRD. Лесно е.
