In April 2016, searches were conducted at the ONEKSIM Group investment fund, controlling shareholder of the RBK Group, due to the recent publications about Vladimir Putin's daughter Katerina Tikhonova and her husband, Russian oligarch Kirill Shamalov[3], as well as about the Panama Papers[4]. RBK was recognized in Russia for investigative journalism, including reports on corruption and abuse of power[5] which led to forced change of leadership, including the editor-in-chief Yelizaveta Osetinskaya, in May 2016.[6]
