NEW: We’re publishing a new investigative package on the #TroikaLaundromat, the vast financial scheme we revealed in March that allowed Russian elites, including oligarchs, politicians, and criminals, to channel billions of dollars out of the country. /1
Now we’re going behind the scenes. First, we show how IOS Group, a Latvian/Irish company registration agent, laid the groundwork for the Laundromat by creating the shell companies that allowed it to function. /2 occrp.org/en/troikalaund…
In addition to showing how IOS Group helped create the #TroikaLaundromat, the story looks into some of the other schemes that offshores created by the company were involved in, including the Russian Magnitsky affair and the PrivatBank scandal in Ukraine. /3

Seems that Deloitte auditing firm has resigned in protest to pressure to certify the audit of Ferrexpo, the largest Ukrainian iron ore producer. Ferrexpo's stock dropped 25% or $1.5B lost in market value in response to the news that Deloitte ran away!

Seems their board members refused to accept that a major shareholder was controlling a 'charity' that the company was supporting. He was the Chief Executive Officer Kostyantin Zhevago at the charity "Blooming Land." #ButNothingsHappening
Ukrainian authorities are investigating the transactions as potential money laundering & tax evasion. The company's board ruled unanimously that the CEO of the charity, didn't have control of the charity so it wasn't an issue for Deloitte auditors to worry about...

1/ This week, after months of work by many dozens of people, @OCCRP began publishing the first stories in a big series: The #TroikaLaundromat, which uncovers a secret mechanism that moved billions of $, mostly out of Russia, around the world.

3/ This second story, which just came out today, goes into a specific user — an Austrian man who facilitated the functioning of the Laundromat, got in too deep, came to regret it, and ended up dead. occrp.org/en/troikalaund…
