MOSCOW, August 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Founders and executives of Mezhprombank are suspected of causing 34 billion ruble damage to creditors with illegal actions, Russian Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
“Illegal actions and violations of laws, which regulate the activity of credit organizations, by the founders and executives of the International Industrial Bank (Mezhprombank) caused damage of over 34 billion rubles to creditors,” he said.
