The biggest problem is that the SMZ shareholders themselves were not aware of the money being transferred to the private firm of Pyotr.
There should be strict action taken against this bastard and he and they should be punished for his criminal aspects, and also the money should also be taken back from Pyotr which he had transferred to his account.
