In 1994 Platon became vicepresident of administration board of Moldovan private bank Moldindconbank, and later - vicepresident of the board of another Moldovan bank - Investprivatbank. In 1998 he was elected as member of the Municipal Counsil of Chișinău on lists of the electoral bloc of agrarians.[9]

He also holds Russian citizenship.[9]

Platon is the alleged architect of the Russian Laundromat, a scheme to move $20-80 billion out of Russia from 2010 to 2014 through a network of global banks, many of them in Moldova and Latvia.[18]

On 20 April 2017 Platon was sentenced to 18 years of prison.[19][20]
