John Christmas presented evidence from the Spanish court that Parex Bank was the main money launderer for Vladimir Putin’s Tambovskaya Mafia and evidence from Eurostat that Latvia’s privatizations of Parex Bank and successor Citadele Bank were fake because they were secretly reversible. Also, something new, it has been recently reported that Russian citizen Eduard Khudainatov is the front owner of Putin’s yacht which has been arrested in Italy. This is interesting because Parex gave a large amount of money to Khudainatov before handing over Parex liabilities to Latvian taxpayers. Was that really a payment to Putin?
