For me the fact that Muzin was part of the story was neither here nor there, I was more interested the companies behind the payment. So as with every rabbit hole I scratched the surface 2 weeks ago and here I am still digging now. The true identity of the people that own these companies is hidden away behind a close anonymous network of legal and financial companies that specialize in offshore business registration and management services. Many of these firms that provide offshore company registration and banking services are themselves registered in offshore tax havens, adding a further layer of anonymity to the secret network of offshore finance.
What we found in part 1 was that every company connected to, and including, Biniatta Trade were all connected by one company, LAS International. Based in London, LAS International has virtual office addresses across the UK, including Edinburgh, Scotland. This address is also home to over 700 offshore companies. The director and owner of LAS International is a Latvian born British national, Elena Yael Dovzhik.
Not much is known about Ms. Dovzhik other than she is a British national, originally from Riga, Latvia, living in the UK. 2 other people I’ve identified from their LinkedIn profiles as being partners in LAS International are lisa Varushenyeva and Ineta Sarah Utinane.
There’s one final person that’s connected to LAS International. Although not stated publicly that she works for LAS International, her signature appears across a number of legal documents (see below) relating to the companies directly involved in Biniatta trade, the mysterious company that paid Nick Muzin $150,000.
As you can see from the document above, there’s no name on it to suggests who the owner of the Signature is. But, further digging reveals another document relating to Biniatta Trade that clearly shows the name of the person the signature belongs to, as well as the LAS International address the company is registered to.
Who is Sandra Gina Esparon?
Sandra Gina Esparon was born in September 1981, is a citizen of the Seychelles, and is currently the legal officer of 63 UK registered companies, some of which are registered to the head office of LAS International on 5 Percy Street, London, W1T 1DG.
Although we can confirm Sandra Gina Esparon is connected to LAS International, via the registered address of many of the companies she signed for, I’m not certain she actually works for them. From what I gather, Ms S.G. Esparon works for a different company but uses the LAS International London and Edinburgh addresses as a place to register the companies she controls.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. Sandra Gina Esparon has a number of different identities. All of which are made up from variations of her name. By matching the signatures found in other documents relating to LAS International we can confirm that Sandra Gina Esparon (signature above top) and Gina Sandra Esparon (signature below) is the same person.
In another company document submitted to Companies House in 2015 we see she changes her name from Miss Gina Sandra Kilindo to Mrs Gina Sandra Esparon.
Here is a list of all of her names I could find.
Mrs. Sandra Gina Esparon
Mrs. Gina Sandra Esparon
Mrs. Gina Esparon
Miss. Sandra Gina Kilindo
Miss. Gina Kilindo
Searching for these other variations of her name we discover that Gina Sandra Esparon is the owner of Alpha Consulting Group Limited. Alpha Consulting is registered at the LAS International UK address (Las Suite, 5 Percy Street, London, W1T 1DG), with the correspondence address for Alpha Consulting in the Seychelles.
What’s even more interesting is even though UK Companies House records show that Sandra Gina Esparon is the director/officer of 63 different companies, none of them are Alpha Consulting. Yet if you search the same database for Gina Sandra Esparon it shows she is the owner of Alpha Consulting.
Mrs. Gina Sandra Kilindo appears in the Panama Papers as a shareholder of a company called Euroimpex Group Corp. As we can see from the graph, the beneficiary of Euroimpex Group Corp is a Russian National, Mikhail Slipenchuk. Slipenchuk is the deputy head of the Russian parliament’s committee on natural resources and ecology, is a member of Putins ‘United Russia’, and is also one of the richest politician in Russia.
Panama Papers: Russian lawmakers reluctant to part with offshore business
Mikhail Slipenchuk, a State Duma member from the United Russia party.
In the MF [Mossack Fonseca] documents, Slipenchuk stands as a real beneficiary of the offshore that has existed since 2000, Euroimpex Group Corp. Though technically speaking, the company’s shares are issued for a certain Gina Kilindo. After the anti-corruption law entered into force, Slipenchuk had to cease discretionary asset management. But judging by the MF data, the lawmaker did not take any action. Meanwhile, he told Novaya Gazeta that he had owned shares until 2007, “solely for investment purposes.” Whatever it was, it is noteworthy that after the Panama Papers had been published, Slipenchuk suddenly withdrew from the United Russia’s primaries.
It seems that in 2014 Gina Sandra Esparon* was caught up in a shady business deal. According to one of her facebook pages she used to work for a company called PulsoDream. PulsoDream was at the center of a scam involving the sale of some unlicensed energy saving device.
There isn’t much about PulsoDream left online these days other than a couple of warnings about the company and this Russian Power Point presentation. What I suspect has happened here is that she was just the person that set up PulsoDream for an unknown Russian entity which they then used to scam money out of investors with.
Sandra Gina Esparon is currently the director/officer of 63 companies
Gina Sandra Esparon is currently the director/officer of 16 companies. One of which is Alpha Consulting UK Limited where she is the controlling shareholder.
Alpha Consulting is based in the Seychelles, but is registered to an address in the UK owned by LAS International.
Gina Sandra Esparon* was caught up in the PulsoDream scam.
AKA — Gina Sandra Kilindo and Sandra Gina Kilindo
Gina Sandra Kilindo is a shareholder of Euroimpex Group Corp, which Mikhail Slipenchuk (Putin friend) is the beneficiary owner of.
Gina Sandra/Sandra Gina Esparon/Kilindo has her signature over a lot of the company documents directly relating to Biniatta Trade and Nick Muzin (Trump associate).
There’s no question that Gina Sandra/Sandra Gina Esparon/Kilindo uses a number of different names on purpose in an effort to obfuscate her business dealings. Just from public records Ive counted over 50 companies that she’s the officer/director of that have either, Russian, Ukrainian, or Latvian owners.
I’m not jumping to conclusions and accusing every Russian person that owns an offshore company of corruption. But the activities I’ve seen from Gina Sandra/Sandra Gina Esparon/Kilindo so far, and the connections she has to other known corrupt companies, leads me to believe that this anonymous network of companies is being used for some sort of fraudulent behavior.
In part 3 I shall share with you an incredible discovery involving an epic fraud case involving the Deutsche Bank mirror trades scandal , Stolen Russian money in Lativa and Moldova, and Ukrainian Businesses connected to Paul Manafort.
