Recall that, according to the Agency, the Spanish police Civil guard issued a report in which of the Novels reported that Torshin instructed him how to lead abroad and launder there money gang. While Romanov allegedly called Torshin a “boss” and “godfather”.

In the article, Bloomberg also reported that the Chairman of the Central Bank does not deny his acquaintance with the Romanovs, which he worked at the Central Bank in the 90-ies, but their last contact allegedly occurred in 2013, when Novels Torshin congratulated happy birthday.

The official said today that spoke with the news Agency “three hours” and “told her all clear”. He stressed that in the case in which the Novels are condemned in Spain (laundering 1.6 million euros), there is no word about the Torshin, nor on Taganka criminal group. “What they’re charges are not filed?” — asked a rhetorical question the Chairman of the Central Bank.

In his Twitter he also explained that was not able to quickly respond to allegations, as was visiting the monasteries of the Arkhangelsk region, where there was no communication.

I do not know. The time coincided with my trip to Arkhangelsk region, where I traveled to monasteries where there is no connection and the Internet. https://t.co/HesopV0khJ

Recall that a similar position was made yesterday, the press service of the Central Bank, noting that the final court decision was not mentioned the name of Torshin. The Agency Bloomberg, citing a source in law enforcement circles of Spain claimed that they did not show Torshin charges in connection with the fact that Russia is not cooperating in the case of claims against its senior officials.
