    26 June 2006 session | 26 Jun 2006

    Photo RBCCourt proceedings against Aleksey Pichugin entered the new phase: witnesses invited by the defense began to give testimony. About 300 witnesses from Moscow, Nefteugansk, Tambov and other cities  employees of oil company „YUKOS“, representatives of the local authority, etc. will have to face the court. 

    26 June 2006 former deputy head of information-analytical department of „YUKOS“ Anatoly Kaliman gave testimony.

    The witness said to the court that his duties included examination of state of affairs around the company and its daughter enterprises (but not those inside of „YUKOS“).

    Anatoly Kaliman told that in the end of 1998 he was sent on a business trip in connection with the personnel rearrangements in „YUKOS“ at the local level. His route lied through Tumen, Pit-Yah and further  to Nefteugansk.

    However, Kaliman did not reach the last point  in Pit-Yah the news about the fatal injury of the mayor of Nefteugansk Vkadimir Petuhov found him and that changed his plans (Kaliman returned to Moscow). 

    Vice-president of „YUKOS“ Leonid Simanovky (who was on a business trip as well) communicated Kaliman about the emergency in the local branch of „Uganskneftegas“.

    Short time later they broadcasted about the death of Petuhov on the radio.

    Anatoly Kaliman stated in the court that murder of the mayor of Nefteugansk caused extremely negative reaction of all the employees of „YUKOS“  both the managing and ordinary ones. According to the witness such a reaction was caused not only by natural human emotions related to tragic death of a person. But also by the fact that the murder of Petuhov, with whom the management of „YUKOS“ had strained relations, was not advantageous to the company  it stroke a blow to its reputation and left unsolved problems pendent.

    Thus, testimony of Anatoly Kaliman refuted one of the main arguments of prosecution on the „Nefteugansk“ incident of the case: that Petuchov was „ordered“ by „YUKOS“ mangers, because it was advantageous to them.
