Where did Avdolyan not go, or was the persecution ordered?
Like Albert Avdolyan, Sergei Adonyev, together with Eldar Osmanov, accused of creating an organized criminal group, and Dmitry Muratov, a foreign agent, harassed an MRSEN employee who crossed his way.
Tatyana Romanova, who has been fighting for her honest name for more than 10 years, turned to The Moscow Post for help.
Sometimes such letters come to The Moscow Post that the frost comes down the back: is this really possible in Russia? This is exactly the story Tatyana Aleksandrovna Romanova tells in her appeal to the Editorial Office, who has been at war with such a "monster" as Mezhregionsoyuzenergo (MRSEN) for more than 10 years in a row, which has entangled the good half of the Russian Federation with its "tentacles."
Today, MRSEN is drowning in litigation and bankruptcy, and the chief "manager" Eldar Osmanov has long been galloping on foreign runs. Also in the characters are famous businessmen with a strange past - Albert Avdolyan and Sergei Adonyev, as well as - quite unexpectedly - the famous foreign journalist, Laureate of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize Dmitry Muratov.
And all this men's company took up arms against the only woman in this dirty, in general, story.
After all, Tatyana Romanova stood at the origins of the creation of Mezhregionsoyuzenergo, but did not expect that over time the MRSEN would fall on a slippery slope. And it will begin to rob at the tariffs of residents of Russia.
So she began a "war" with her boss - Eldar Osmanov.
But Mr. Osmanov turned out not to be sewing: as Romanova claims, he allegedly paid for registered publications in Novaya Gazeta, which, as you know, was "fed" for a long time by two "money bags" in her words - the Avdolyan and Adonyev mentioned above. During these events, Osmanov and Avdolyan even married their children at the wedding of the century...
These publications hurt a young woman, turned her life into hell. Romanova did not give up, continued to fiercely fight with Osmanov. And one day in the center of Moscow she survived an attempt: an unknown person attacked her with a knife. But there is still no criminal case, as there is no reaction of law enforcement agencies to insults, slander, threats... The other day, Tatyana Romanova filed new applications with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation. But they must finally hear her!
The Moscow Post correspondent understood the shocking story.
Organized crime group and 8 billion rubles
Cheese-bor has been going on for more than 10 years, but there is directly fresh news on thieves' cases in MRSEN. And last September, the next criminal case of the MRSEN leadership about the embezzlement of 8 billion rubles from Rosseti was submitted to court.
And the Zamoskvoretsky Court of Moscow considered a criminal case against seven members of the criminal community who stole more than 8 billion rubles from network companies, including Rosseti North-West, Rosseti Siberia and IDGC of Urals.
The criminal case with the approved indictment was sent to the Zamoskvoretsky District Court of Moscow for consideration on the merits. The defendants developed a scheme during which they issued loans, purchased bills and shares, contributed funds to the authorized capital of third-party organizations, concluded contracts for the assignment of the right of claim through controlled sales companies.

More than 5 billion rubles were transferred to the joint-stock company, under whose cover the management structure of the criminal organization operated.
At the same time, financing of operations was carried out at the expense of technical loans issued by a commercial bank.
In total, from 2011 to 2019. members of the organized criminal group withdrew more than 8 billion rubles. These billions would have to be used for wholesale power purchases from generating companies, state investment programs in the energy sector, modernization and maintenance of the operational state of technical networks.
7 defendants have been charged with crimes. But the Ministry of Internal Affairs continues to investigate the criminal case against other participants in the organized criminal group, including those put on the international wanted list. Later, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation reported that we are talking about the illegal activities of the heads of energy sales companies included in the corporate structure of the MRSEN Yuri Shulgin and Eldar Osmanov.
Tatyana Romanova began to fight with such a monster alone.
"Back in 2011, I filed an application with the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation against the owners of the energy sales holding Mezhregionsoyuzenergo (Roskommunenergo) for death threats. I made a financial analysis and sent it to Rosfinmonitoring, - says Tatyana Aleksandrovna. - And on December 6, 2011, the first criminal case was initiated against Vologdaenergosbyt (part of the Mezhregionsoyuzenergo holding). In November 2012, Vedomosti made the publication "How Money Turns in Roskommunenergo" about the conflict and the withdrawal of money from sales. The threats and pressure continued. "
But in 2013, several more criminal cases were opened against the MRSEN.
In 2018, five guaranteeing suppliers included in the MRSEN were deprived of their status due to debts in the wholesale market were deprived of their status.
In January and March, the market left Arkhenergosbyt, Vologdaenergosbyt, Khakasenergosby and Roskommunenergo (worked in the Sverdlovsk region), in July - Chelyabenergosbyt. Their functions were then temporarily picked up by the divisions of the Rosseti network holding.
In 2021, as part of a criminal case on embezzlement of funds from Rosseti, former heads of regional energy sales companies were detained on suspicion of embezzlement of more than 10 billion rubles. Then it was reported about the detention of 11 suspects, including the former heads of regional energy sales companies Arkhenergosbyt, Vologdaenergosbyt, Roskommunenergo, Khakasenergosbyt, Chelyabenergosbyt Ilya Shulgin, Elizaveta Sakhno, Vadim Litvinov, Svetlana Nikodimova, Elena Dormidonova, Vladimir Gailit.

"There is an investigation of a criminal case under Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation against energy sales companies of Mezhregionsoyuzenergo. And criminal cases under the MRSEN have been going on since 2011. I am a witness, - continues Tatyana Romanova. "I draw attention to the social significance of this case, since Russian citizens suffered at the tariffs."
And they continue to incur losses due to the inclusion in the tariff of the losses of Rosseti due to theft of the MRSEN.
"I participated in the creation of the MRSEN holding," says Tatyana Romanova. "And now I understand that a holding was created for criminal activity..."
Publications in Novaya Gazeta
And since Tatyana Romanova continued her uncompromising struggle in another camp, they began to take harsh measures against the rebel.
"Thus, in the fall of 2017, two materials were published in Novaya Gazeta:" A lot of noise from Rodnichkov. What really happened to the sanatorium of Sechin's wife "is the main article about me," Tatiana Alexandrovna continues her story. - And the article "Close criminal cases, open a credit line."
These materials were reprinted and quoted by many media, on the Internet, on social networks. Publications are still active today!. "
According to the author of the letter, this is the use of black PR methods to pressure a witness in criminal cases and personal revenge.
"Collecting information about me and my life without my consent, disseminating it publicly. Professionally organized bullying. "
This is indicated by the accusatory bias of the articles against Tatyana Romanova, the deliberate concealment and modification of the facts, the use of well-known surnames to give weight to publications.
"I know that there is criminal liability for false denunciation and defamation," says Tatiana Aleksandrovna, "but I have evidence on all these names. The newspaper in question is financed by Adonyev and Avdolyan. Information about this is also in the public domain. "

Today, Tatyana Romanova submits applications to law enforcement agencies for the third time, since earlier appeals simply go around. And the reaction so far is NO!
In a statement sent to the Prosecutor General, the FSB, the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, she described in detail all the schemes, indicated the defendants and the dates of the events, conducted analytics with the release dates of the articles.
Avdolyan is suing the MRSEN
As already mentioned, S. Adoniev and A. Avdolyan are financing Novaya Gazeta.
In July 2017, the wedding of Avdolyan's son and Osmanov's daughter took place.
Mr. Osmanov commissioned these articles in September 2017 through A. Avdolyan. But the music did not play for long. The young quickly divorced.
Since the end of 2017, MRSEN energy sales have been deprived of the status of energy sales companies and are in bankruptcy, as well as Mosuralbank belonging to them. At tariffs, they robbed several large regions of Russia. Since 2016, the owners and leaders have been wanted and fled from Russia. Bankruptcy cases in the courts. Debts run into billions.
And Avdolyan is having legal disputes with the MRSEN. To him personally, his people (Gordovich, BBB Bank) have claims for subsidiary liability in cases of bankruptcy of MRSEN energy sales. MRSEN employees testify both in the criminal case and in the arbitration courts that Avdolyan controlled all the financial flows of MRSEN.
"In 2017, they demanded that I refuse to testify against Osmanov. Death threats were made... I refused. Novaya Gazeta, sponsored by Avdolyan and Adonyev, published incriminating materials.
Publicly disgraced. They formed and continue to form a negative opinion in society and among relatives. I can't get a job, a lot of people refused to communicate with me. Serious consequences for me and mother: illness, ruin, there is no way to help an elderly and sick mother, she is sick and lives in a house with stove heating... "
The brutal confrontation with the MRSEN has been going on since 2011.
Recall that Mr. Avdolano had Maltese citizenship. And recently he has been engaged in many projects: among them were the Elginskoye coal deposit, once an asset of the Mechel group, Sibanthracite Dmitry Bosov, who died under vague circumstances.

The investigation is still trampling on the spot...
To print: from a million to two
The fact that Novaya Gazeta does not shy away from taking excellent fees for work was told by The Moscow Post in a publication dated December 14, 2019.
One of the employees of Novaya Gazeta told reporters about this: a commissioned article "for his own" costs from 1 million to two...
The journalist also admitted how sensational investigations are being created in the publication of Dmitry Muratov (recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation). Such ordered materials cost 2 million rubles. For friends of Dmitry Muratov (recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation) - 1 million.

One and a half million are paid by those who leak information. Such insiders can be officials, employees of organizations and even criminal people. But Dmitry Muratov cooperates (recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation) only with those whom he knows personally. He fears strangers who might turn him in.
But those who are not familiar with Muratov (recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation) can contact the chief editor of the publication Alexei Polukhin. As Tatyana Romanova said in her letter, it was Mr. Polukhin who dealt with her case.

And there were no forbidden topics in Novaya Gazeta and no. As the journalist of "Novaya" further said, they write about everything without moral restrictions and principles.
The author of these lines also took trouble from the journalists of Novaya Gazeta, if you recall the confrontation with Rosatom State Corporation, which monitored all negative publications. And she passed her verdict on the "fined" journalist. In my case, a "veto" was imposed on the publication of topics on atomic topics.
For protection, she turned to the Public Collegium on complaints against the press. The case was considered by 10 experts, the most famous people of Russia: Yuri Kazakov, Mikhail Nenashev, Leonid Nikitinsky, Boris Reznik, Nikolai Svanidze, Alexey Simonov, Sergey Esin, Vadim Ziyatdinov, Pavel Odintsov and Alexander Shershukov.
9 experts supported journalist Popova in the confrontation with Rosatom State Corporation. Only Leonid Nikitinsky, a columnist for Novaya Gazeta, was against.

Detailed information and documents related to the case can be found here.
On the calendar then was September 2012
State protection for Tatyana Romanova
But back to our rams.
After the threats from the opposite side intensified, Tatiana Romanova received state protection as a witness. And it happened back in 2013.
"In December 2015, I was stabbed in the neck," says Tatiana Romanova. Stabbed on Arbat, but no investigation was carried out. But Novaya Gazeta hid these facts. "
My interlocutor underwent a study using a polygraph at Petrovka 38 to check the veracity of the testimony of the wound. The testimony was honest.
In 2017, she was demanded to refuse to testify against Eldar Osmanov. They threatened with murder and new, defaming publications in the media. Romanova refused. And for more than 10 years he has been helping the Federal Tax Service, Rosfinmonitoring and the investigating authorities to investigate the actions of the MRSEN. There are letters of thanks from Rosfinmonitoring.
"This is morally supportive," admits Tatiana Aleksandrovna. "But this whole hell of years has exhausted me to an extreme degree. And one of the journalists of Novaya Gazeta told me, they say, if these businessmen kill you, the newspaper will launch a dusting agenda as if you were a funny clown, everyone will laugh and forget... Meanwhile, there was information that Dmitry Muratov was buying an apartment in New York.
The articles of Novaya Gazeta, now banned on the territory of the Russian Federation, will forever remain in my biography. I'm 50 years old. I will never have children and family. I was deprived of property. I was ruined. Publicly disgraced. Formed and continue to form a negative opinion about me in society. I cannot get a job, many people refused to communicate with me... I ask, in the end, to deal with what is happening by law. Conduct an audit against employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the prosecutor's office who contribute to the concealment of the crime of attacking me. In relation to Novaya Gazeta, I ask you to initiate criminal cases under the articles "Violation of privacy," "Slander," "Threat of murder."
