Interim administration runs the bank “Peresvet”
On Friday October 21, 2016 the Central Bank of Russia has appointed the interim administration to run the bank for the period of six months. The main shareholder of the credit organization is the Russian Orthodox Church.
According to the regulator, the interim administration was appointed due to the fact that the bank had not satisfied the claims of creditors on monetary obligations in the term prescribed by the law. The powers of the executive bodies of the bank have been frozen for half a year.
The channel “Rain”, citing the sources, told about the mysterious disappearance of Alexander Shvets, head of the bank and a minority shareholder of “Peresvet”.
The bank “Peresvit” said in its message that it saw no connection between the temporary absence of Alexander Shvets, and the recent report publication of the rating agency Fitch. It was reported by the bank’s employees that Shvets had been hospitalized. Agency experts drew attention to the fact that credits of the companies that did not conduct the real activity were on the balance of the credit institution with the total amount of 12 billion rubles.
The financial and economic management of the Russian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate controls 49.7% of the charter capital of the bank. ZAO “Expocentre” owns 24.4% of the bank. “Expocentre” is being controlled by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. Shvets, head of Peresvet owns a share of 12.8%, 4.98% is under the control of Victor Litvyakov, Lidiya Makeeva owns 4.5%, Pavel Panasenko (vice-president of the bank) – 1.7% (through “Vnukovo-Invest” LTD).
