    Tsygelnik Gennady Alexandrovich | 22 Jan 2007

    Is known also as Shevtsov. He was a target in the investigation of the second Alexey Pichugins case as one of the accused. At that moment he had already had five previous convictions for the crimes connected with drug trafficking and guns.

    On the 11 of July 2006, appearing before the Moscow City Court, Gennady Tsygelnik pleaded guilty in the Nefteyugansk mayor Vladimir Petuhovs assassination, in attempts at the executive officer of the company «Rosprom» Victor Kolesov, and also in two attempts at the businessman Evgeny Rybin. The customers of these crimes Tsygelnik called Leonid Nevzlin, Michail Khodorkovsky and Alexey Pichugin. About that fact that the customers were exactly these persons, Tsygelnik got known from Sergey Gorin and the underworld leader Arkady Goritovsky.

    As both of them are not alive, it is impossible to check Tsygelniks words. On the 17-th of August 2006 Gennady Tsygelnik was returned guilty on all the charges and sentenced to 18 years of imprisonment. On the 21 of February 2007 the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation upheld this decision.

    At the third Alexey Pichugins trial Gennady Tsygelnik, appeared as a witness for the prosecution, again gave evidence against him and the «Yukos» top-management. However, at the trial with regard to Leonid Nevzlins case on 21 of April 2008 Gennady Tsygelnik, appearing with testimony, stated: «I slandered Pichugin and Nevzlin at the request of the investigators of the General Prosecutors Office Burtovoy, Bannikov, Zhebryakov and the police operative Smirnov. I was promised a defence and a minimal term, but they gave me a maximal one». At the present time Gennady Tsygelnik serves his sentence in one of the colonies of strict regime in Volgograd.
