Court Extends Detention of Finiko Pyramid Founder Doronin and His Right-Hand Man

A court in Tatarstan has extended the detention of Kirill Doronin, founder of Russia’s largest Ponzi scheme in recent times, Finiko. Doronin will spend at least two more months in custody as authorities fear he could hide from law enforcement. Ilgiz Shakirov, vice-president of the crypto pyramid, remains under detention as well.

Finiko Mastermind Doronin Denied House Arrest

Vakhitovsky District Court of Kazan, the capital of the Russian republic of Tatarstan, has decided to keep the two most prominent figures of the Finiko crypto pyramid in custody. This week, the court announced it has extended the detention period for Kirill Doronin, who established the Ponzi scheme in December 2018, until Nov. 28. Finiko defrauded hundreds of thousands of investors before it collapsed in July this year when he was arrested.
