After the publication of the website FLB.ru Mikhail Khodorkovsky is liquidating his ‘Open Russia Club’ in London

Mikhail Khodorkovsky contrived the procedure of liquidating the firm after publication of the investigation by the website FLB.ru entitled ‘The Place of Gathering of Good Russians’. Khodorkovsky’s* propaganda base in the center of London worth 12 million pounds’.

The company ‘Wimpole 101’ manages a classy mansion in the center of the British capital worth 12 million pounds. It’s through this firm that we have figured out the address (67 Wimpole St, London W1G 8AP, Great Britain) and the assignment of the house.

As we already reported, it was used as a ‘Guest house’ – there gathered friends and subordinates of Mikhail Borisovich Khodorkovsky (MBKh), oppositionists abroad who were loyal to him, and plans were discussed there to break up Russia as well as imposition of new sanctions. On the upper floors of the house there is a studio from where Mikhail Khodorkovsky is recording his videos for YouTube.

This house was bought in 2016, and its management was carried out through the firm ‘Wimpole 101’. In its turn, the firm ‘Wimpole’ was created by an offshore company from Bermuda – ‘Bermude Archipel Real Estate’. At that time, analysts of the website Prigovor.ru based on three indirect proofs confirmed that this offshore company was connected with Mikhail Khodorkovsky, but there was no direct evidence.

But now, thanks to the declaration of liquidation of the legal person, cast iron proofs have come up: this club was being bought for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, it has been used by Khodorkovsky and has been financed by him.

Buy the way, the liquidation letter is signed by Natalia Shachkova – Khodorkovsky’s closest employee. ‘This woman has manifested herself as master of dark financial schemes’, we wrote in the investigation entitled ’10 women of Khodorkovsky’.

The thing is that in case of a liquidation a list of contractual partners must be published without fail to whom a person being liquidated owes money for services or goods. And what do we see on this list?

So, Mr. Khodorkovsky lent to the company ‘Wimpole’ 1.31 million pounds. Yet, a certain person ‘A Kh’, with the same address as of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and whose initials correspond with the initials of his daughter Anastasia, lent additional 1.76 million pounds.

Well, the British company ‘Hanover 16’ founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, also gave to the managing company of the mansion 2.45 million pounds. So, if somebody still had some doubts that this was utterly and completely an asset of Mikhail Khodorkovsky, has to admit that they are totally dispelled now.

By the way, this document exposes Khodorkovsky’s inclination to distort, to put it mildly, the reality. In his recent interview, he assured his friend and foreign agent Yury Dud* that he spends on all his media outlets no more than the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK)** — ‘from 2 to 5 million dollars a year’. But now we see that the budget of the firm managing his video studio and the Reception Club of ‘Open Russia’ amounts to 6.2 million pounds of sterling. It means once again – citizen Kh has lied.

And there is a funny detail – the plan to break up Russia it is better to discuss over a bottle of wine, and here in the near there is another lover to offend Russia and Russians – the foreign agent Yevgeny Chichvarkin* who is the owner of the withering wine store ‘Hedonism’. Who would not support a friend from the ‘Anti-War Committee’ by buying from him a couple of Burgundy wine bottles for getting together with friends?

And here is the final stroke – if you google names of some suppliers, you will see that there are vendors of black caviar, top London restaurants, fish deliverers, pizza restaurants. Mikhail Khodorkovsky likes over a glass of good wine with black caviar to rant, shaking his head, about the disastrous situation in Ukraine.

In sum, there is nothing new – Mikhail Khodorkovsky, according to his old habit, is liquidating a firm in order to cover tracks. However, in this particular case there will be a garbage tail dragging and clinking which will consist of Chichvarkin’s bottles, empty black caviar cans and packings of exclusive cheeses.

(About gastronomic and other free-living habits of the irreconcilable London fighter with Russia we will tell in the second part of the investigation).
