Former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal spoke about how he treats his own business. He is accused of organizing two murders and an assassination attempt, but he considers all charges to be ordered.

Sergey Furgal gave an interview to the publication “Merchant". According to him, the persecution is directly related to the conflict at the Amurstal plant. In particular, the reason is that in 2019 the detained co-owner of the plant Nikolai Mistryukov transferred his share to Pavel Balsky, who owns 75% of the company.

According to the charges, the ex-governor added, the investigation has no evidence. And they have nothing to do with him. And the testimony on which the charges are based cannot be reliable. One of the main witnesses - Nikolay Mistryukov - was in a pre-trial detention center for a long time, did not have access to the help of lawyers, and therefore took the position of the investigation under pressure.

Also Sergey Furgal told that on him pressure is exerted... In addition to denying correspondence, depriving him of contact with his family, he is threatened with criminal proceedings against his relatives.

The term of Furgal's arrest according to the latest court decision extended until June 8... The preliminary investigation should end on May 8. This is not the first complaint of the ex-governor about the detention in the pre-trial detention center. He has previously stated about exclusion of lawyers from him, delayed letters, ohin calls to relatives.
