The Bank of Russia has established facts of market manipulation in the course of transactions with options1 in on-exchange trading (hereinafter, the Options). Over the period from 27 April 2022 to 16 May 2022, Aleksei V. Reshetnikov conducted operations across brokerage accounts of Yekaterina A. Klevtsova and Olga V. Stepanova, which caused significant deviations in the volume of trading in the Options.

Moreover, the Bank of Russia has cancelled the qualification certificates of a financial market specialist issued to A.V. Reshetnikov.
