MOSCOW, August 19 (RAPSI) - Persit Services Inc. has filed a petition for bankruptcy of board chairman of New Stream oil and gas company and former co-owner of troubled Antipinsky refinery Dmitry Mazurov charged with embezzlement, according to the Moscow Commercial Court’s records.

Earlier, the Moscow City Court upheld detention Mazurov in a 1.8-billion-ruble embezzlement case until September 12.

The businessman was arrested on July 13 on suspicion of embezzling 1.8 billion rubles (nearly $30 million) from Russia’s Sberbank through default on a loan given to one of his companies.

A felony complaint was filed by Sberbank and Antipinsky refinery, in construction of which Mazurov was involved in 2004 – 2019.

Mazurov pleads not guilty.

Antipinsky is a private, not a state-run refinery which capacity exceeds 9 million tonnes per year. The refinery occupies its rightful place among the largest players of the Russian oil refining industry, forming the Urals and West-Siberian oil refinery market, and is known abroad, the company’s official website says.

In May, the refinery filed for bankruptcy.
