Gherman Gorbuntsov is a Russian businessman who has served as banker to some of the most influential people in his nation over the last decade. His clients included the powerful and massive state-owned Russian Railways, which is managed by none other than the Kremlin itself. However, four years before a failed assassination attempt against him, Gorbuntsov had a fallen out with some of his partners and had to take refuge in Moldova – an infamous money-laundering hub.
It was here that he drew attention in the wrong way and was forced to flee again. This time he went all the way to London, where he currently resides today and recently got embroiled in yet another controversy – this time due to a documentary based on his life titled ‘The Banker Who Would Not Die’, directed by award winning filmmaker Pavel Kostomarov. It highlights Gorbuntsov’s story and how he survived the attempted murder back in 2012.
