UFA, 16 June 2015. /Bashinform News Agency/. The head of the «Razzle Volf» concert agency, Ufa resident Vladimir Kazykhanov, who has been organizing tours of the world rock stars for more than 25 years, accuses Lenny Wolf, the soloist of «Kingdom Come» group, with fraud.
"It is no secret that in recent years many artists refuse to tour in our country, but now, it seems, there are those who on the wave of anti-Russian hysteria decided that they could deceive Russian companies with impunity", "Komsomolskaya Pravda — Ufa" website cites Vladimir Kazykhanov.
The scandal erupted because of the German «Kingdom Come» rock group, which tours were scheduled for October this year. The group intended to play in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Ufa. There was written a «reunion» on posters, as the participants, except for Lenny played in other bands for a long time. And it turned out that some of them were not going to play with Wolf in Russia – they even threatened with lawsuits, because their names were illegally put on the posters.
"Lenny Wolf has no agent, he does all business negotiations and contracts by himself,” Vladimir Kazykhanov said, by the time having already transferred the musician a sum of $ 6,000. “Lenny continually required us to transfer the money to his account, and when it became clear that his former colleagues were not going to reunite with him, simply stopped answering phone calls and e-mails".
"Our lawyers submitted the documents to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation — to defend my rights in court," Vladimir Kazyhanov said. “I hope it will be possible to hold the German citizen Lenny Wolf criminally liable.”
