    Our banner Alexey Pichugin case

    Kolesov Victor Lvovich | 22 Jan 2007

    The former head of the case management of the company «Rosprom». On October, 5, 1998, staying near his house, Victor Kolesov was attacked by two unknown men. They took away from Kolesov a briefcase with a gas gun and $2000 and beat him up cruelly; after that Kolesov lost consciousness. Coming to himself, the victim saw that a passerby had bent over him, and the criminals had disappeared.

    According to the General Prosecutors Office, these criminals were Gennady Tsygelnik and Evgeny Reshetnikov, however, Kolesov himself didnt identified them. The Public Prosecutors Office had affirmed that the criminals acted by Alexey Pichugins instrutions and might kill the victim, but appearance of the strangers upset the criminals plans. According to the public prosecution, the crime was connected with Kolesovs career ambitions, which the „Yukos“ management didnt like. The only «proof» of this version are the confessions of Tsygelnik and Reshetnikov, which they had made in the Moscow City Court during the second and the third Alexey Pichigins trials.

    It is noticeable that Victor Kolesov himself at all Alexey Pichugins trials had stated that, by no means, he doesnt consider himself to be a victim of the accused. And also he had expressed a doubt that someone wanted to kill him and Pichguin and «Yukos» are involved in this crime.

    In spite of that, Alexey Pichugin was returned guilty in organizing of the attempt at Victor Kolesov.
