Oleg Boiko website! Tons of info.

Somebody put up a website with tons of info on Russian Oligarch Oleg Boiko.  We didn’t know all of this, for example that Boiko represented the Kremlin trying to engineer a Communist takeover in Moldova in 2013.

Boiko is well known in Latvia as ‘business’ partner to Valery Kargin, Viktor Krasovitsky, and Andris Skele.

Hopefully the US and EU will wake up and add Boiko (and Kargin, Krasovitsky, and Skele) to the sanctions lists.

Oligarchs Kargin and Koval still at it UPDATED: Boiko

The collapse of Latvian and Estonian payday lender MiniCredit shows that banking oligarchs Valery Kargin and Dmitri Koval are still at it, not slowing down their activity even after Kargin’s Parex Bank was revealed as a pyramid fraud and then fraudulently bailed out by the corrupt Latvian government.

Apparently Kargin and Koval worked with Rolands Petersons of PrivatBank, which was also a pyramid fraud, to license MiniCredit in Latvia and Estonia and amazingly given their histories were granted licenses.

They then opened a bank account at Citadele Bank, which is a successor to Parex and still apparently controlled by Kargin since his top offshore banker Valery Hudorozhkovs is still there.

A large amount of money was somehow run through MiniCredit’s account and then disappeared.  Some of this was presumably from low-income clients with payday loan accounts.  And perhaps some of it was from Russians running money through the accounts for laundering purposes, given the size of the withdrawals relative to the size to the company’s legitimate activities.

An interesting detail of this case is about Koval, whose Saules Bank of Latvia was caught laundering money although authorities never bothered to prosecute anyone.  Saules Bank is today merged into Rietumu Bank which is also a money launderer.

Just after Parex whistleblower John Christmas gave details of massive frauds at Parex to Latvian authorities in 2005, who ignored the information, Koval invited Christmas to meetings to discuss establishing a new bank in Latvia to serve Koval’s clients, who he described as Jewish billionaires in Moscow.  Koval wanted Christmas to be a front for the bank, making it seem like an American bank even though the clientele would be Russian.

Kargin and Koval don’t need Christmas to be their American front anymore since they found someone better.  Supposedly former Fed chief Paul Volcker is the owner of Citadele today, although we doubt Volcker has any clue what is happening there.

We continue to hope the EU and US authorities will wake up and realize that the Latvian government is running a racket to help Russians steal money from Europeans, Americans, and especially Latvians.

UPDATE:  Oleg Boiko, also from Parex Bank and therefore also being protected by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, is also still active providing high-interest loans to desperate poor people.  http://theblacksea.eu/malta-files/article/en/cash-loans-czar-maltese-tax-escape-plan

Parex Bank, Ivory Coast, Laurent Gbagbo, Oleg Boiko

Below is the link to a Latvian news article about arms smuggling in Africa.

The article states that in 2004, the French peacekeeping force in Ivory Coast was assaulted by SU25 bombers and military helicopters from Belarus.  Nine French soldiers died.

The bombers and helicopters were discovered to have been ordered and paid for by “R. M. Holdings” of Latvia.

The article explains connections with Laurent Gbagbo and Oleg Boiko.

The article does not explain two connections with Parex Bank.  Oleg Boiko’s company Union Bancorp, Inc. is a minority shareholder in Parex Bank.  And, Robert Montoya Holdings is a minority shareholder in Parex Bank.

Oleg Boiko is well known in Latvia because after the assets disappeared from his bank in Russia, he moved to Latvia and immediately received a banking license for Baltic Transit Bank and a casino license for Vegas Casino.
