    Kostina Olga Nikolaevna | 22 Jan 2007

    Olga Kostina worked in «Yukos» as Michail Khodorkovskys councellor and deputy administrator of the analytical administration of the company. Later, she was the head of the press service of the Moscow mayors office. At the present time she is the president of the regional human rights organization «Soprotivleniye» (Resistance), the member of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation. She is a target in the investigation as a victim.

    According to the General Prosecutors Office, Pichugin offered the Tambov businessman Sergey Gorin to find people for committing the «order» for attempt at Kostina. Gorin handed over this «order» to his acquaintance Peshkun, and he, in his turn, turned this job over to the recidivist Korovnikovs gang. In November, 1998, under the doors of the flat where the Kostinas parents lived there was blew up a homemade explosive assembly with capacity about 400 g in TNT equivalent. Nobody suffered of the explosion, Olga Kostina was not in the flat. The public prosecution stated that the «Yukos» management decided in such way to take vengeance on the former colleague.

    In March, 30, 2005 Alexey Pichugin was returned guilty in organization of the attempt at Olga Kostina.
