This was reported by Kommersant.
The publication indicates that we are talking about the entrepreneur Sergei Melin, the general director of Laguna LLC. There was no criminal case against him, but Pershin "in a friendly way" told him that the case could soon be opened on the fact of fraud with several land plots, embezzlement and falsification of evidence in a civil case in court. Pershin convinced Melin that he had good connections in law enforcement agencies and could help ensure that the case was not opened. For this, he asked Melin for 24 million rubles.
The businessman did not believe Pershin's words and turned to the FSB.
The FSB LLC was officially registered on December 20, 2004, but the organization has been operating since 1999. The foundation employs former law enforcement officers.
The organization's website says that the FSB LLC provides "specialized assistance to the state security agencies, as well as other law enforcement agencies in the fight against corruption, anti-terrorist activities".
