according to which he is reporting that Pichugin A.V. and his boss Nevzlin are

(Volume No 6, page of the file 124; volume No 60, pages of the file 19, 23-24)
- Testimony of the witness Peshkun A.V., both during the preliminary investigation and in court, according to which his statements about complicity of Pichugin and Nevzlin, as organizers, in attempted murders against Kostina, Kolesov, Rybin, and the murder of the Gorins, Sergey and Olga, are based on veracious information at his disposal and received from Gorin S.V. In speaking with him, Gorin repeatedly said that not only Pichugin was the organizer of the crime, specifically, the attempted murder of Rybin, Kostina and Kolesov, but there was a more powerful organizer – Nevzlin.
The first conversation about the involvement of Nevzlin in the mentioned crimes took place with Gorin around 1999, when he and Gorin, while being in Moscow, on the Sakharov Prospect, near the bank ‘Menatep’. Gorin came out of the premises of the bank and was waiting for someone. They started to talk about executors of the orders with regard to Kolesov and Kostin. At that moment, Gorin, for the first time, said that, behind all these crimes stood not only Pichugin, but also the main organizer Nevzlin. From the words of Gorin, he knew that Pichugin was handing over money and fulfil the will of Nevzlin. In particular, he connected the name of Nevzlin with the attempted murders against Kolesov, Kostina and Rybin.
He has been acquainted with Gorin since 1992. During the period 1993-1994, he worked for him as a chauffeur in the town Tambov, in the firm ‘Algoritm’ dealing with attraction money of the population. The head of this firm was Gorin. In 1996, Gorin, after the firm ‘Algoritm’ ceased to exist, started to deal with the opening of an affiliate of the bank ‘Menatep’ in the town Tambov. Gorin was going to Moscow and there was having talks with the management of the bank ‘Menatep’. From conversations with him, he learned that he was in contact with Pichugin, an employee of the security service of the bank, who had promised to help Goring with finding a job.
He met Pichugin in 1997-1998, via Gorin, end explained that he, Pichugin, was the head of the security service of the oil company Yukos. The meeting took place in the vicinity Puchugin’s office, house No 23, Vavilova Street, in Moscow. The last several years Gorin and Pichugin had been in close contact. In particular, Gorin, together with Pichugin, took an effort to dismiss the head of the firm ‘Tambovnefneprodukt’ Plakhotnikov.
In August 1998, Gorin proposed to him for monetary remuneration amounting to 5 000 US dollars, to commit a crime in Moscow against Kolesov and Kostina. Gorin, for committing these cries was to receive 20 000 US dollars, 6 000 of which Gorin planned to pay to executors of the crimes. He, Gorin, in his turn, proposed to commit these crimes to Popov, who, acting together with Korovnikov, Kabanets and Erbes, fir monetary remuneration to the amount of 3 000 US dollars, made an explosion bear the door of Kostina’ apartment.
Later on, from the words of Gorin, it became known that the crime against Kolesov was committed by another group.
Gorin repeatedly at meetings with Pichugin tried to solve the question about a job. In the spring of 1999, he, together with Gorin, came to the CJSC “Moscow Youth Palace’ (MDM), where a meeting took place with Pichugin, and on that day, on TV, information was translating about the attempted murder against Rybin. From the following conversation with Gorin, he learned that Pichugin was spiteful. As the money for killing Rybin had been paid, but the killing had been not committed. Having learned that Rybin was alive, Gorin was very nervous and said that it was necessary to kill Rybin, as the money for that had been already received by him.
The Money in US dollars were handed over to Gorin at the meeting with the latter with Pichugin in the CJSC ‘MDM’. He saw it in the Gorin’s bag. Moreover, Gorin said that the work of killing Rybin had to be fulfilled to the end.
After failed attempted murders against Rybin and Kostina, conflicts started to emerge between Gorin and Picvhugin. From Pichugin Gorin went away nervous, he was afraid of surveillance, and asked to use devious paths.
In the autumn of 2000, Gorin addressed him with a request to hide a sub-machinegun in his place, that was disassembled and was equipped with a silencer. The sub-machinegun was geared to use rounds from the Handgun Makarov. When Gorin received a negative answer to that, he, Gorin, threw away the parts of the sub-machinegun in the field near his house.
After apprehension of the executors of the crime against Kostina, Gorin asked him to do out of town for a while and explained that he had received an instruction from Pichugin personally about the his elimination in order to prevent leaks. Having seen them together, Pichugin started to boil over and voiced complaints to Gorin.
Later on, between Gorin and Pichugin there was a conflict in connection with Gorin’s intention to make public the involvement of Pichugin in organization of crimes against Kolesov and Kostina. Gorin started to express fear for his life, specifically, when he was preparing for a regular meeting with Pichugin, he warned that, in case he didn’t return, it would be necessary to contact his (Gorin’s) wife, as she knew, what to be done in such a situation, and she disposed of some information with regard to Pichugin.
For one of such meetings, Gorin took a knife with him, and, upon that, said, if something happened to him, so Pichugin would be guilty of that. Such fears for his life Gorin expressed because of his mutual criminal activity with Pichugin. At one of the meetings, Gorin hinted to Pichugin that, if he wouldn’t come, at at certain time. To his car, on which he was to be driven to the town Tambov, then unrecoverable events would happen.
Due to the fact that Pichugin didn’t help Gorin with finding a job, the latter rendered him a ‘bill’ to the amount of 100 000 US dollars for fruitless trips to Moscow and spending his time on organizing gas stations in the town Tambov. Moreover, Gorin. In case of Pichugin’s refusal to satisfy his demands, promised to make public information about the crimes committed by Pichugin.
The relations between them sharpened even more. In May 2002, Gorin met with Khodorkovsky B.M. and told him about what he had done for the oil company Yukos, and after that they refuse to pay him money and to provide help in finding a job. Having learned about this meeting, Pichugin started to voice his claims to Gorin.
Later on, Pichugin rendered to Gorin his own account to the amount of 100 000 US dollars. Moreover, Gorin said that they had handed over to him a bag with 40 000 US dollars, and at the request to return to him (Peshkun) the debt, he explained that he had to transfer the money to someone in the town Tambov. Yet, being still in Moscow, he bought a car ‘Sobol’, and later started to actively construction works near his house.
Information about his meetings in Moscow Gorin wrote in a notebook that he kept in his safe, located in the basement of his house, and hid its content.
On November 2002, Gorin planned to go to Pichugin for solving the problem with finding a job. Yet, on November 21, 2002, he learned about the disappearance of Gorin and his spouse Olga. Moreover, he says that the death of Goring and his spouse was beneficial specifically to Pichugin and Nevzlin. After the crimes committed against the Goring, he started to fear for his life and for the life of members of his family.
the preliminary investigation, he didn’t provide evidence pertaining to the
involvement of Nevzlin in organization of crimes, because he feared for his
life and health, as well as for the life and health of his close relatives.

- The Verdict of the Moscow City Court of Marth 30, 2995, that has become final and biding and, according to which Pichugin A.V., head of the fourth division of internal and economic security of the oil company Yukos, is adjudged guilty of organizing, by precious concert with other leaders of the oil company Yukos of intentional murder of the Gorins. (Volume No 41, pages of the file 4-12)
Thus, evaluating the presented proofs, the Court has come to conclusion that Nevzlin, being a shareholder and first deputy of the president of the board of the bank ‘Menatep’, and later of the oil company Yukos, by previous concert, with the head of a division of the security service Puchugin A.V. and other unidentified persons from among managing employees of the bank ‘Menatep’ and oil company Yukos, has organized the above mentioned crimes against Korneyeva V.A., Petukhov V.A., Kolesov V.L., Kostina O.N., Rubin Y.L., Fedotov N.V., Ivanov A.U., Filippov Y.L.
Later on, recognizing that Gorin S.V. had at his disposal document and information of implicitly in committing crimes and in other illegal actions, information about which is to be found in the investigative materials of the case, and recognizing that Gorin was intended to make public this documents and information in case of non-payment of monetary remuneration and refusal to help find a job for him (Gorin) and for Gorina O.M., Nevzlin, entered into a criminal conspiracy with Pichugin and unidentified persons from among leaders of the oil company Yukos, with a purpose to hide committed by him (Nevzlin) crimes, organized and, with the help of Pichugin, who had selected persons unidentified by the investigation, on November 20, 2002, at about 19.40 o’clock, with the use of fire arms, the execution of the murder the couple Gorins - Gorin S.V and Gorina O.M., corpses of whom were transported to a place non identified by the investigation and haven’t been found yet.
About the fact of killing Goring near the entrance to his garage on the territory of his household, testifies the existence on that scene of the brain stuff that belonged to him. The criminal, on the scene of the crime, made at least 5 shots from fire arms. After the murder of Gorin, his corpse was moved to the right corner of the garage, where it lay for a considerable period of time, of which testifies a big amount of blood, and after that his corpse was wrapped in something and pun in the rear trunk of a car.
From Gorina O.M. for a certain period of time, in the kitchen located in the semi-basement, they tried to get information of interest for them, and of that testify the fact that the kitchen window was closed with pillows, and furniture moved. In the safe there was a search for documents containing compromising materials pertaining to Pichugion, Nevzlin and other persons from among the leadership of the oil company Yukos, and a proof of that is fact the door of the safe was left open.
Before the killing of Gorina, it was allowed to her to write a note for her mother about the alleged departure of he and Gorin S.V., and, obviously, it was done to postpose the time of their search, or for creating a hope that she would be alive if she would refuse to offer resistance during the transportation with the purpose of her further ‘interrogation’ and getting from her information in a safe place. About the fact of trying to stage the disappearance of the affected testify the fact of the theft of Gorin’s car.
Hiding of facts and circumstances of the murder of the Gorins indicates that the organizers of the crime were in close connection with the affected, and, in case of discovering the murder, would be under direct suspicion.
About a meticulous planning of the murder of the Gorings indicates the fact that Pichugin, to guarantee his alibi, intentionally informed several persons of his alleged meeting with Gorin on the question of his employment. Moreover, this meeting was constantly postponed, and that testifies that the preparations for the committing of the murder at the moment of the first tern of Gorin’s coming to Pichugin, was not complete, so, in connection with that additional time was needed, given that Gorin was ready to come to Pichugin any time.
Apart from that, about the preparations preceded to the crime, testify the fact that, in spate of measures undertaken in order to find places of possible disposal sites, the corpses of the Gorinns have not been found, which means that the corpses were transported to specially prepared places, or its elimination, and, most likely, far from the place of their disappearance. However, not-finding of the corpses cannot serve as a proof of non-culpability of Nevzlin and Pichugin of organizing the intentional murder of the Gorins couple, as for persons, involved in this crime, there was enough time to hide their corpses.
The motive for killing of the Gorins is, according to court, to present the dissemination of dangerous for Nevzlin and Pichugin information about committed crimes. Moreover, the organizers of the murder knew that this information was at the disposal of both spouses, and in could be in the house or in other place known to them, in written, electronic, audio or video formats.
Thus, the murder of the Gorins was committed with the purpose both for finding the volume if known information and withdrawal of carrier of this information, as well as further extermination of its owners.
