In 2006, Gorbuntsov became the owner of Spartak hockey club and his close friend Pyotr Chuvilin became the director.[6] Three months before the purchase, the hockey team virtually ceased to exist due to financial difficulties, but by December 2006, it had returned to the top division in the Russian championship. In February 2008, Gorbuntsov received the “Person of the Year 2007” award “For his contribution to the revival of Russian sport”.[7] Later, in 2009-2011, he was also the chairman of the board of Spartak.[8]

At the end of 2008, Gorbuntsov acquired about 80 percent of the shares of Moldovan bank Universalbank. According to media reports that same year, the banker received Moldovan citizenship.[2][3][4][5][9]

In 2012, German Gorbuntsov survived an unsuccessful attempt on his life in central London.[2][3][4][5][10] According to The Guardian, the assassination attempt on Gorbuntsov originated from the Solntsevskaya Bratva organized crime syndicate in Moscow.[11] Gorbuntsov, who was seriously injured, was hospitalized in critical condition and put into an artificial coma, which he was in until 1 April.[12] A criminal case was brought against Vladimir Plahotniuc in Russia for the alleged assassination attempt of Gorbuntsov;[13] however, Interpol declined to put Plahotniuc on their international wanted list, stating that they "cannot intervene in what are essentially political disputes between member states."[13] Gorbuntsov later testified that the attack on him was organized by the pro-Russian politician Renato Usatii.[14]
