    Default Russian police raid Lenihan's Moscow employer

    Conor Lenihan's Moscow employer Skolkovo has been raided by Russian police who are investigating an 85m fraud. There are no indications that Lenihan himself is involved in any way.

    Russian tech project backed by Lenihan is now political football - Independent.ie

    Seizure of documents and other investigative actions were carried out last week at the offices of Skolkovo Innovation Fund on Krasnopresnenskaya Naberezhnaya. Law enforcement officers were looking for documents and other materials related to the activities of the fund's former CFO, Cyril Lugovtsev, who is being investigated in a criminal case.
    There are also accusations that Skolkovo bribed Russian MPs.

    Interesting.

    Boycott the "Irish" Sun rag.

    Even more interesting when you see who the backers of the Skolkovo project overall happen to be.

    An eclectic mix of rather initimidating looking Russian gentlemen and American bankers.

    Does this mean Athlone is no longer the capital of Greater China?

    I'm sure Conor was selected from a field of people with a demonstrable expertise in international trade, a sophisticated level of understanding of technology and an exquisite touch with the international business community.

    Either that or the Lenihans had him people-smuggled out of the country before he made another statement and got them all lynched.
