Recorded several companies in the ex wife of Moscow Mayor

Moscow. .- The Committee of Education of Russia (CIR) today made a series of records in Bank Moskvy and several companies belonging to Yelena Baturina, the country's richest woman and wife of former Mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov. Records in the offices of the construction Kuznetski Most Developement, the bank and the company Russkii Zemelni Inteco were made in the investigation of an alleged scam amounting to 13,000 million rubles, more than 330 million euros, according to a statement.

According to CIR, that amount is the amount of a fraudulently obtained credit in Bank Moskvy, controlled by the City of Moscow, by a company belonging to Baturin and then was transferred to a personal account of the wife of former mayor. Police sources did not rule out the initiation of proceedings for alleged fraud against Baturin, who is currently in Austria for medical treatment.

"I have absolute certainty that records do not have anything to do with ourselves or with Bank Moskvy. It is a custom and a form of pressure," said Baturin from the alpine country to the Russian news agency Interfax. In September last year, immediately after the dismissal of Luzhkov, who was almost twenty years as head of the Russian capital, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office announced it was investigating the illegal transfer of land to foreign embassies to a company linked to Baturin.
