Andrei Boksha, a former partner of the head of Rosseti Andrei Ryumin, became the winner of the auction for the acquisition of Scientific-6 LLC. The auction took place as part of the bankruptcy process over Energogaz, a former subsidiary of Tsentrenergogaz (part of Gazprom), which was previously led by controversial entrepreneur Dmitry Doev.
There were almost fewer scandals around the company and its bankruptcy than around the VIS Group of Companies, the general director and beneficiary of which is Doev. Could bankruptcy be manageable, and the money of the enterprise be in a completely different place? For example, in the new "golden" business of Dmitry Doev.
Details - in the material of the correspondent of The Moscow Post.
Andrey Boksha is a former partner of Andrei Ryumin in Prime Real Estate LLC. Ryumin himself never hid that before the civil service he was engaged in real estate. At the same time, both Boksha and Ryumin are associated with the ambiguous developer Pavel Tyo, the owner of Capital Group, allegedly close to the Moscow mayor's office.
Earlier, Boksha acted as a co-investor in the projects of Te, as well as Eduard Bergman and Vladislav Doronin. For example, he owned Promsoyuz and Prime-Invest, which built up the Moscow residential complex ILove and Bauman House.
Recently, the new owner of Scientific-6 has become more active in various real estate projects. In 2021, it became known that its Prime Real Estate will build up a plot of 60 hectares near the village of Golikovo in the Solnechnogorsk district. And "Scientific-6," which bought Boksha, has expensive real estate in Moscow, which can also go for development.
Ryumin himself worked with Te in the first half of the tenths. After he went through the career ladder in state-owned companies associated with Rosseti, the opportunity to directly engage in business disappeared from him. But Boksha remained, who can represent his interests.
However, we can talk about Pavel Te. The cost of Mr. Boksha's companies is minus 242 million, the cost of shares is minus 116 million rubles. Most likely, the entrepreneur is in debt. Te could "help" with funds in order to subsequently implement the next development project with Boksha.
Bidding for Scientific-6 LLC was accompanied by a series of scandals. They could not take place several times. As a result, the amount of the lot from 1.8 billion rubles fell by about half. All this time, passions continued to rage around the bankruptcy process itself: Energogaz was presented with its claims by many counterparties who sought to bring to subsidiary liability the former top managers of the structure and Gazprom Tsentrremont.
This, first of all, is about Mr. Doev himself, who very successfully resigned from the post of head of Tsentrremont at the end of 2019. In addition to him, they tried to bring to subsidiary responsibility the former general director of Energogaz (ex-subordinate of Doev) Alexander Karabanov, as well as one top manager of Gazprom Alexander Psatia. The latter was previously the head of Scientific-6 LLC. Experts do not exclude that the sale of this asset will have an impact on the size of the potential "subsidiary."
Earlier, Karabanov was a defendant in the criminal case on tax evasion of Energogaz, but it was closed due to compensation for damage. As
Surprisingly, after that Karabanov continued to work in the structures of Gazprom. Now he runs JSC Electrogaz, whose asset value is minus 622 million rubles under state contracts as a supplier for 16.7 billion.
The very bankruptcy history of Energogaz began against the background of the scandal with the construction of the Punginsky PGH in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug for Gazprom. Energogaz acted as a sub-general contractor. In 2018, his contractors for the project, in particular, TechnoSvyazStroy LLC, accused the company's management of fraud. It turned out that the structure owed builders under 750 million rubles for the work performed.
Then TechnoSvyazStroy LLC stated that all
Among other things, Megabild LLC received the right to claim a debt from Energogaz in the amount of 100 million rubles under a cession agreement with Antares LLC. Until August 2017, the founders of Megabild included the capital's Maximus LLC, which is the co-founder of Seligdar PJSC, and co-owners of Maximus were Sergey Vasiliev and Konstantin Beyrit.
Subsequently, Doev became an investor in Seligdar in White Gold, a joint venture of this company and the state corporation Rostec. In October 2021, the structure received a license to develop the Kuchus gold deposit in Yakutia, the largest in Russia. Apparently, funds for this project could be received just from the assets of Gazprom Tsentrremont and its subsidiaries. And it took a lot of money - over 7 billion rubles (three times higher than the initial price of the lot).
Returning to Energogaz, in 2018, a bankruptcy petition was filed. TechnoSvyazStroy associated this with the desire to contribute to the transfer of the company's only valuable property - a building located at Moscow, Scientific Passage, 6, in favor of Megabild, allegedly affiliated with Energogaz. It is this building that is on the balance sheet of Scientific-6 LLC. Now it's in Boksha's hands.
I.e. even then, Energogaz's counterparties assumed that the bankruptcy process could be manageable. Around the same time, the courts satisfied the applications of other creditors - Urbanstroy LLC (66 million), SMU LLC No. 36 (331 million), Yugorskremstroygaz (312 million rubles). I.e. almost everything was "pulled out" of the structure, except for "Scientific-6." Now they took him too.
Energogaz had another conflict with LLC Sredny Ural JV. In 2015, they entered into a subcontract for construction and installation work at the Punginsky PGH, which were completed in 2016. But Energogaz simply refused to pay for them. Similar situations arose with dozens of other construction participants
The total debt, according to the calculations of contractors, reached hundreds of millions of rubles, and the implementation of the federal project was almost disrupted. Only in the first launch complex formed a billion-dollar financial "hole." Writes about this
At the end of the day, it's just amazing. Energogaz, which in 2016 brought in revenue under 8 billion rubles, suddenly turned out to be bloodless, and a significant part of its property and assets for 1.5 billion rubles was transferred under transactions to Gazprom Tsentrremont JSC as collateral for loans. This suggests that the leadership of the state monopoly in the person of Alexei Miller and his people could have their own interest.
All this, to put it mildly, raises questions. And, especially, to Mr. Doev, who has long gone headlong into another business - VIS Group of Companies. It is there that you can look for funds that could be withdrawn from Energogaz. True, the Civil Code itself is going through difficult times.
From VIS to Kuchus
GC "VIS" unites a whole network of businesses, but the main direction is construction. And not just construction, but necessarily through a concession agreement with local authorities. Apparently, it is more reliable to master budget money in this way.
The special zone of activity of VIS is Novosibirsk. There the company is building a new bridge across the Ob. The project is more than problematic. The deadlines have been shifted more than once. In addition, local parliamentarian Alexander Burmistrov suspected that VIS could save about 50 million rubles on the purchase of cheap pipes for the bridge instead of the German ones provided for by the project.
VIS also has problems with other concessions in Novosibirsk. Among other things, the company has disrupted the construction of clinics so necessary for the city. And its garbage business, the Ecology Novosibirsk company, which was previously an operator for handling MSW in the Novosibirsk region, was declared bankrupt on September 4, 2023. Loss at the end of 2022 minus 448 million rubles, asset value - minus 1.1 billion rubles. At the same time, she also acted as a contractor for state contracts for 718 million rubles as a supplier and 7.5 billion as a customer. Where's the money?

The VIS is surrounded by criminal scandals. Earlier, a criminal case on fraud on an especially large scale was

In October 2022, security officials opened a criminal case on fraud during the construction of a highway. According to investigators, more than 1 billion rubles were stolen at this construction site. The case involves unidentified managers from an investor company, which, as you might have guessed, is LLC PF VIS (part of the VIS Group of Companies). Writes about this
It seems that VIS does not want to fulfill its obligations at all. Surprisingly, as soon as the security forces had not yet come to Dmitry Doev himself. But even if this happens, the question of where is the money remains relevant. Perhaps the funds of VIS received under state contracts and concessions also need to be sought in a joint venture with Rostec, the White Gold company. And if Doeva is still covered by Sergei Chemezov, then it becomes clear why the businessman comes out of the water dry over and over again.
