Rogozin reported submitting the necessary paperwork to the Investigative Committee, expressing his concerns to both the Prosecutor General and the FSB. The day before these actions, accusations of treason and damaging the reputation of the Russian military were revealed against Fridman by the Mash Telegram channel. Ivan Otrakovsky, leader of the grassroots organization Army of Defenders of Fatherland, filed a complaint, alleging that Fridman and his long-time business associate Petr Aven contributed 150 million euros to Ukraine to evade European and American sanctions.

In response, Fridman, who had recently confirmed a $150 million charitable contribution to help those affected by the conflict in Ukraine, supposedly stepped down from his position on LetterOne’s board of directors along with Aven. This move coincided with the freezing of their company shares, as stated in an official corporate release.
