Husband told local media that his wife tried to pack several vacuum insulated tanks and transport to a truck, with the help of a crane. The action, however, was stopped by the police. The conflicts between the couple started a few years ago and, in 2019, Udalova opened another cryogenics company, reporting that she was the only owner, causing Medvedev to enter with several lawsuits against the new company. The ex-wife said she planned the robbery for about three months, but says that, in fact, “it wasn’t a crime, as she also owns the tanks.”
