Former Transnistrian bankers on the wanted list
Two former bankers from Transnistria, Oleg Brizitki and Stephan Shinkariuk are suspected of jobbery with severe aftermaths for the region’s economy. They are on the wanted list of the Center for Fight against Economic Crimes and Corruption.
The men are suspected to have helped Oleg Smirnov, the son of the former leader of Transnistria Igor Smirnov, to defalcate 200 million rubles from the humanitarian assistance sent by Russia. In this dossier appears Oxana Ionova, as well. She is the former head of the Administration Council of the Bank from Tiraspol.
Current so-called president of Transnistria Evgheny Shevchuk accused Ionova’s administration of several frauds. He said that right after he took office, he learnt that over 90% of the gold reserves of the Central Bank of Tiraspol have been transferred to other accounts.
