Sberbank of Russia has submitted to the Moscow Arbitration Court two lawsuits , totaling 2.2 billion rubles, to recognize bankruptcy of a businessman Lenur Islyamov and his wife, reported Moscow news agency.

According to the source, the claims by PJSC "Sberbank of Russia" against Lenur Islyamov and his wife Elvira were filed January 28, both in the same amount - 1.1 billion rubles.

Claims may be due to the loans Islayamov was granted by the bank, Roman Sinchenko, a former interim manager of Elvira Islyamova-directed "Queengroup", explained "Moscow" news agency.

- Sberbank is a secured creditor of the LLC "Queengroup" and the sum of these claims was included in the creditor’s register. The credit was granted on the security of cars or a minimum balance of goods. Lenur Islyamov and, apparently, his wife were involved as guarantors. This is a probable cause for bankruptcy proceedings –it is necessary to recognize Islyamov a bankrupt in order to recover his own property that are shares not only in Russian companies, but also foreign ones, said Sinchenko.
