Sobchak considered the sentences of those involved in the case of extortion from the head of Rostec unfair
Journalist Ksenia Sobchak considered the verdict unfair for those involved in the case of extorting 11 million rubles from the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov. This was reported by the Russia Today Telegram channel.
According to the TV presenter, she “fulfilled everything, all the agreements, so that there would be a mitigation.”
The day before, on February 12, the court sentenced the ex-director of the Sobchak company, Kirill Sukhanov, to 7.5 years in a maximum security colony. Former editor-in-chief of Tatler magazine Arian Romanovsky (Kuzmin) and journalist Tamerlan Bigaev received 7 years each. Ksenia Sobchak did not appear at the announcement of the verdict.
According to investigators, the head of Rostec was extorted for funds to “block” the publication of “defamatory information” in the “Lights Out” Telegram channel. The defendants did not admit their guilt and indicated that they carried out Sobchak’s orders within the framework of the employment contract.
