Avdolyan was covered with Gordovich: to Latvia removed 100 million rubles?

The oligarch Albert Avdolyan who was lit in many ambiguous stories, including history of crash of scandalous holding Mezhregionsoyuzenergo (MRSEN) was covered by Dmitry Gordovich's bank?

The editorial office The Moscow Post during the investigation of activity of "BBR bank" found extremely entertaining scheme on a conclusion of the large sums out of borders of Russia, non-payment of taxes, and the group of offshores, the Latvian bank was involved in the chain. All traces from this scheme conduct to Avdolyan.

We will remind, the founder of the Yota company having powerful interest in coal business, Albert Avdolyan became the person involved in scandal stories more than once. Promoted it and the fact that his many large deals had a number of general "signs" - sellers at the time of it were in a difficult situation, and here as the devil from a snuffbox appeared Avdolyan moreover and covered with finance of state banks. According to such scheme to him the Elginsky coalfield (former asset of the Mechel group), "Sibantratsit" of Dmitry Bosov who died under strange circumstances around whose inheritance Avdolyan turned as a shark and also the "Yakut fuel and energy company" which fell into his hands after Ziyavudin Magomedov's arrest left.

And quite often hand in hand with Avdolyan there was a Rostec state corporation and its permanent head Sergei Chemezov with whom the oligarch intersects through "The new house". Avdolyan and a certain Nadezhda Kudravets acted as his founder, and Chemezov and his spouse Ekaterina Ignatyeva are included into the board of trustees. At the same time the initiatives of fund in Yakutia are supported personally by the head of the republic Aysen Nikolaev.

We mentioned this fund not for nothing: its president Irina Belyanova and Mrs. Kudravets will appear together with the offshores which left marks in the history of "BBR bank".

As previously told by The Moscow Post, the Cypriot company Sparkel City Invest LTD and the related Russian legal entity AENP LLC (today - TSIPE N.A. Popova LLC) tried to get into many financial disputes and operations of the MRSEN division, the beneficiary of which was now fugitive from investigation businessman Eldar Osmanov - at that time a relative of Avdolyan. Through an attempt to become one of the creditors of MRSEN and its subsidiaries, the company most likely wanted to withdraw part of the assets. But for now, other creditors and the court are fighting off all these attempts. In this busy chain associated with certain loans, together with Sparkel City Invest LTD, BBB Bank was also tied up, a large shareholder of which is Dmitry Gordovich.

By the way, the bank has repeatedly appeared in scandals. So, in 2017, the adviser to the chairman of the board, Vladimir Koryevkin, became a defendant in a criminal case on embezzlement of funds from the Moscow Mortgage Agency bank, initiated against the father of the former Interior Ministry colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko.

As we managed to find out, the bank of Gordovich and Avdolyan are connected not only by transactions on the MRSEN line, but also by a rather entertaining attempt to withdraw funds and dust them from taxes in Russia - through the illegal, as confirmed by the court, application of a zero rate.

To Latvia via Cyprus

In 2019, MIFNS of Russia, for the largest taxpayers No. 9, collected 20.1 million rubles of tax debt from income received by a foreign organization from sources in Russia and more than 10 million rubles of penalties from the Bank's DBR. The attempt to challenge this decision essentially revealed the offshore-Latvian machinations of Gordovich and Avdolyan.

So, in 2012, the bank, under subordinated loan agreements, attracts paid financing in the amount of 10 million euros and 10 million US dollars from the Cypriot company Globalone Holding Limited, and in 2013 10 million euros from Racast Investments Limited. At the same time, money for loans to companies was provided by their shareholders - Racast International Limited and Globalone Management Group Limited.

In 2014, Gordovich's bank pays these offshore loans (interest income) - more than 100.7 million rubles, while applying a preferential rate of 0%, referring to paragraph 1 of Art. 11 of the Agreement between the Russian Federation and Cyprus on the avoidance of double taxation in relation to taxes on income and capital. That is, in Russia, no one paid taxes from this amount.

These over 100 million rubles went to the foreign exchange accounts of firms in the Latvian bank JSC Citadele Banka, opened in both cases with the participation of the management of the representative office of Wooden Fish Agency Limited (Belyanova I.V. - head of the representative office in Russia).

It is worth noting here that Wooden Fish Agency Limited continues its activities today and this company with the above offshore companies has one company-secretary - CYMANCO SERVICES LIMITED.

At the same time, at least in 2012, Kudravets N. was the director of Globalone Management Group Limited.

Both Kudravets and Belyanova intersect through the New World Foundation, which we spoke about earlier. One is the president, the second is the co-founder together with Avdolyan. Moreover, Belyanova is the  director of other assets of Avdolyan, for example, AP Holding JSC, A-Property LLC, A-Tek LLC.

Kudravets was previously the owner of Port Dalny LLC, which was then transferred to the company of Avdolyan's business partner, Sergey Adonyev, Kaleidoscope LLC. She crossed paths with Adoniev and the company Global Finance Capital LLC.

We will return to the connections of these two ladies. So far, we only focus on the fact that the New House charity foundation, where both crossed paths with Avdolyan, is estimated at 5.2 billion rubles, which is quite a lot of money and leads to some thoughts.

For example, in 2022, some citizens and firms donated more than 1.3 billion rubles to the fund, in 2021 - more than 1 billion rubles. The names and names of the benefactors were not disclosed.

An analysis of the accounts of offshore companies conducted by the Federal Tax Service showed that they are used exclusively for the circulation of funds with their shareholders, and due to the resulting interest income to shareholders, the appearance of real offshore activities was created. A kind of gasket firm. Moreover, the activities of GLOBAL ONE Holding Limited were unprofitable, that is, the company did not have its own funds to issue a loan to the bank.

In 2018, there is an amazing thing at all - the generous offshore company GLOBAL ONE forgives the bank multimillion-dollar foreign currency debts. Where does such generosity come from in our poverty?

And everything turned out to be simple, the source of financing for the bank was actually the shareholders of GLOBAL ONE Holding Limited and RACAST Investments Limited, registered in the British Virgin Islands, who received all interest income, and then the money sailed to the ultimate beneficiary, while bypassing the 20% tax that the bank was obliged to pay in Russia. And then the most interesting thing begins.

The owner of the premises leased by Wooden Fish Agency Limited and Globalone Management Group Limited is the representative office of Victory Trading Group Limited, and before that the owner was the oligarch Avdolyan, who owns Wooden Fish Agency Limited. The latter represents the interests of the investment fund Telconet Capital Limited Partnership in Russia, which founded the operator Yota. Albert Alikovich Avdolyan is positioned as one of the shareholders of the fund.

Interesting fact: Irina Belyanova, whose phone number is indicated as a contact of Globalone Holding Limited (Cyprus), in 2013-2017 had the right to manage offshore money in the Latvian JSC Citadele Banka.

In addition, a certain Svetlana Safronova was associated with GLOBALONE Holding Limited, who worked at BBB Bank in 2005-2017. In 2014, she was a member of the management and was an adviser to the head of the board, and since mid-2017 she had the right to manage the company's money in a Latvian bank.

Also, the shareholder of GLOBAL ONE Holding Limited was Anatoly Semerukhin, a minority shareholder of BBB Bank, who since 2005 held the chair of another adviser to the head of the board. The share in the bank (0.2%) was in the offshore itself.

It is not superfluous to note that the same Semerukhin was mentioned in the material of The Moscow Post about the possible connection of the family of the Prime Minister of Bashkiria Andrei Nazarov (through the Granel Group of Companies) with the Opalikha Park residential complex and the history of his deceived equity holders.

Returning to the scheme with offshore money.

Since March 2023, GLOBALONE HOLDING LTD has been listed in liquidation. Hiding the ends in the water?

Thus, all companies that scrolled money through the BBB Bank were directly related to the oligarch Avdolyan (this is a fact proven in court!).

But, in addition to adding taxes, no one answered for these schematoses. Where do the competent authorities look? Or Avdolyan has too much cover?
