Having worked some years the customs broker in various Open Companies, it has well studied specificity of registration of cargoes, and also had extensive client base.

the scheme which has allowed mister Makarchevu to take from delivery to Russia three helicopters double profit, looked, under the version of the investigation, as follows. At first it has registered Open Company MK - logistik its friend Alexander Morjakov, and the economist - wife Margarita Makarcheva became which general director. Having received from the director of aeroclub the list with necessary marks of helicopters in a desirable complete set (clients, as a rule, ordered in maximum), mister Makarchev, it is told in criminal case, has agreed with the Russian dealers of companies Bell and Robinson about delivery of three helicopters. After that representatives MK - logistik have made counterfeit papers, according to which the consignor a certain Estonian firm, and the addressee " was; MK - logistik . That, in turn, has ostensibly resold cars to the Moscow false firm, and in documents the price several times exceeding the real appeared. Thus instead of the improved complete set in papers the standard appeared. The fictitious company at already inflated price has given helicopters to customers. As a result at the real price of helicopter Bell of $407 1,9 million it has passed customs clearance under documents in which cost at a rate of $550 thousand has been specified And to the final buyer has managed almost in $3 million Two Robinson have been declared at the price about $150 thousand everyone while really buyers have paid for them almost on $400 thousand

All as a result of illicit import to Russia three helicopters the budget, under the version of the investigation, has missed more than 20 million rbl. in the form of not paid customs payments.

Anybody from accused the fault in incriminated crimes did not recognise. Thus misters Makarchev and Seamen shifted fault against each other: in particular, mister Makarchev on interrogations asserted that any relation to Open Company creation MK - logistik and contraband of helicopters has no, and Alexander Morjakov who has given such evidence stipulates it. And that, in turn, asserted that he has headed firm at the desire of mister Makarcheva, to which, considering old friendly relations with it and his wife has completely trusted and believed that MK - logistik will be engaged in absolutely legal activity.
