Ilya Karpov on the agricultural holding OGO and attempts to squeeze him out

On 17 October 2012 business daily Kommersant carried an interview with Ilya Karpov, shareholder of the agricultural holding OGO,  in which he describes how the business flourished after almost closing down after the 1998 crisis and also explains why the business needed new shareholders and what went wrong.

And a great deal has gone wrong – the holding was almost bankrupted, while he ended up filing charges against his partners Mark Milgotin, Yury Manilov and Sergei Kupriyanov, who are accused of extortion. They allegedly forced him to sign over his interest in the company to them.
