Russian Security Council Secretary’s nephew Alexei Patrushev got into the sensational list that has been published by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). The article has pointed out that Nikolai Patrushev constantly reminds Russians of "imminent threat" from America and Europe.

Nevertheless, his nephew, businessman Alexei Patrushev, doesn’t own any state corporations and has an ability to run his assets from all over the world.

He uses certain services in the Virgin Islands, where they have created sort of "off-shore paradise" in the north-east of the Caribbean. Alexei Patrushev registered Misam Investments Ltd in 2007.

In 2010, Patrushev became a shareholder of the company, and in 2012, he sold his shares to Maksim Khramtsov in exchange for a "valuable reward." In this case, the transaction’s sum was blacked out.

Last year, Novaya Gazeta reported on the joint business of Khramtsov and Patrushev, who are still good friends.

Khramtsov and his relatives have their own TD Agro-Line company, which is one of the largest meat-selling companies in the Russian market. In addition, the company is a major customer of the Federal Agency for State Reserves.

Furthermore, Khramtsov’s business receives loans from Rosselkhozbank. It’s a national bank that was created for development of agriculture and the agro-industrial complex, which is run by Dmitry Patrushev, who is Alexei Patrushev’s cousin.

Thus, Alexei Patrushev earns money from an offshore company through governmental agencies.

According to Dialog.ua, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has released data according to which Russian Commercial Bank and Vladimir Putin used suspicious money laundering schemes.
