The court decided to keep Grigorishin under custody.


The Shevchenkivsky district court of Kyiv chose the preventive measure, keeping under custody, for Konstantin Grigorishin, the former head of the observing council „Sumyoblenergo“. He is kept in the preliminary prison No. 13 of Kyiv. The former head of the observing council of the energy supplying company „Sumyoblenergo“, Russian citizen Grigorishin was detained in the small hours of Sunday morning in Kyiv for resistance to militia in executing their duties. Law-enforcers refused to release Grigorishin explaining that he carried a gun with cartridges in his trousers pocket and had no license for this gun. Grigorishin insists that he was framed. Earlier Grigorishin was a member of the observing councils of energy supplying companies „Sumyoblenergo“, „Lvivoblenergo“ and Zaporozhye ferroalloy plant. In September Grigorishin was elected a member of the observing council of the plant „Zaporizhtransformator“ – the largest producer of transformers.

Brief reference.
Konstantin Grigorishin, born in 1965 in Zaporozhye, graduated from Moscow Institute of physics and technology, is a candidate of sciences (more or less equivalent to Ph.D.). Deing a citizen of Russia, K. Grigorishin decided to direct his talent to the development of Ukrainian economy. Owing to his work and the efforts of young manager group „„Energostandard“ Group“ more than 50000 Ukrainians retained their jobs and get wages twice larger than the average one in Ukraine. And it was not accidental that Ukrainian President L. Kuchma and his Russian counterpart V. Putin chose Zaporozhye for their meeting on 6 October 2002. During this meeting the enterprise „Dneprospetsstal“, due to Grigorishin’s team, got a high estimate of the Russian President as „the most successful Russian-Ukrainian project“.
