The creator of the Coffee House thought he had paid himself off, but he was “closed”

The Moscow Meshchansky Court changed the preventive measure for Kirill Yakubovsky (former owner of Coffee House and Azbuka Vkusa). Before this he was under house arrest.

According to a source on the VChK-OGPU telegram channel, the obvious reason for the transfer is the fact that Yakubovsky “did not come to an agreement” with the creditors of the Asian-Pacific Bank and M2M Bank, which he and his partners brought to reorganization and bankruptcy. The chance was given, the chance was missed.

But we can watch live how finely one can fine-tune criminal prosecution in the “commercial department” of the Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.

According to, those who ordered the criminal prosecution decided to go further and launch a new case, already under Article 210 - OPS. Having learned such news, Kirill Yakubovsky could change his house arrest to escaping over the hill. But it’s not for nothing that the cunning investigators of the Investigation Department spread caviar on sandwiches; they’ve made sure they’re on the safe side.

It is worth recalling that Yakubovsky’s partner is the now sitting Pavel Maslovsky (former head of the gold mining company Petropavlovsk). While he was in prison for 5.5 years, on February 7, 2024, he was charged with a new charge that he was from V.M.H.Y. Holdings stole $83 million. By an unpleasant coincidence for everyone, his partner Yakubovsky is now also in a pre-trial detention center. He will most likely also be charged with this episode. And since there is both fraud and legalization, all this will be combined into a beautiful 210.

Yakubovsky’s partners in all stories were Vdovin and Maslovsky Jr. Realizing that after the demise of the banks it was better to leave the country, Vdovin and Maslovsky took advantage of this.

A lot of money was lost in M2M from large and touchy investors.

According to a source of the Cheka-OGPU, among the bank’s depositors there were especially respected clients: Gavriil Yushvaev received money, Roman Abramovich received a share in Azbuka Vkusa. Yakubovsky still had interests in Russia, mainly in real estate, and he decided not to leave, since he did not see any risks for himself - the issue with the main investors was resolved. But the “commercial department” of the Investigation Department, under the leadership of Colonel Dmitry Dibrov, did not appreciate the businessman’s courage and decided to show Moscow from the windows of the pre-trial detention center.
