Full FEE Traktovenko

The son of billionaire Traktovenko, who was credited with the takeover of banks in the 90s and 2000s, is mastering the fee-development market, but cannot pay a penny on a loan for his firms?

In Zelenogorsk, which is administratively part of St. Petersburg, a sanatorium worth 6 billion rubles may appear. The project can receive strategic status for the city. And the preparation of documents for this will be carried out by the Imhotep Development company Vyacheslav Traktovenko, the son of the billionaire and former owner of FC Zenit David Traktovenko.

David Traktovenko is the former owner of the controversial Industrial and Construction Bank (Promstroybank), around which scandals have sounded more than once. They enveloped the personality of Traktovenko himself, including due to the fact that at some point he preferred to invest in other countries, and not in Russia - apparently, they "feed better" there?

Details - in the material The Sankt-Petersburg Post.

It is unlikely that such an example had a good effect on his son Vyacheslav, who had to get used to getting everything without much difficulty. So in the case of Imhotep-Depelopment, everything looks the same. The company was created just recently, and has already acquired a whole series of large projects in St. Petersburg.

At the same time, the company plans to work in Zelenogorsk for the state account, because the land belongs to the Committee for Property Relations of the Northern Capital. The cost of designing and preparing securities can cost the budget or profile investor 1 billion rubles, the construction itself - another 6 billion.

In addition to the sanatorium in Zelenogorsk, Traktovenko Jr. is preparing the territory of the Krasny Oktyabr plant for development. At the same time, she herself is not engaged in development - this is the so-called. "Fee developer," who is busy preparing documentation and a turnkey project for the developer.

Vyacheslav Traktovenko has already acted as the founder of 12 legal entities. Some of them have government contracts, while remaining unprofitable. For example, Baltengineering LLC has a state contract with the St. Petersburg Physics and Mathematics Lyceum. At the same time, at the end of 2021, the company suffered losses of 21 million rubles, the value of its assets is also negative. Financial stability, solvency and efficiency are recognized as low.

It is strange that the billionaire's son does not have the means to ensure the work of his own company. But, apparently, paying on debts is not particularly in his honor at all. His other company LLC Entrepreneurial Initiative, where he is the sole owner, has an asset value of minus 47 million rubles. I.e. the company is also clearly indebted.

At the same time, she also found a whole series of proceedings to recover debts with the state corporation "ВЭБ.РФ." As follows from the court documents in case No. A56-8349/2022, VEB recently tried to recover funds from him under a loan - the amount was less than 100 thousand rubles. What already, and 100 thousand Traktovenko Jr. did not find?

Other court cases of the same firm are related to the collection of mandatory payments and sanctions to the pension fund (did not pay for their employees so that they would be left without a pension?) And failure to fulfill their other obligations. However, with such a father, he really should not worry about such "little things."

David and the Banks

As for his father, David Traktovenko, he made his fortune back in the 90s, when he created the Industrial and Construction Bank (Promstroybank) in St. Petersburg. Very quickly Traktovenko overgrown with other assets. To manage them (including a credit institution), the holding structure of Banking House St. Petersburg CJSC was created.

At the same time, Traktovenko Sr. was actively involved in development. He is still engaged in it: his family owns shares in the structures of the Baltros group of companies, which was engaged in the development of the Slavyanka and Novaya Izhora districts. A major buyer of housing in these projects was the Ministry of Defense. In addition, David Traktovenko is the owner of Zanevsky LLC, which owns more than 180 hectares in the village of Shushary.

At the same time, there is no bank in Traktovenko's assets. In 2007, he joined the VTB Group and was renamed VTB Bank North-West. In March 2011, it was reorganized into the Northwest Regional Center of VTB Bank.

At the beginning of the 2000s, the bank experienced a rise, joining a number of other financial organizations. In 2002, Promstroybank even became one of the two exclusive organizers of a 5 billion ruble bond loan to Gazprom. At that time, it was the largest market ruble loan.

Some people are inclined to associate the successes of the organization with the personality of the former deputy chairman of the bank's board, Mikhail Oseevsky, after becoming vice-governor of St. Petersburg. At the same time, the bank's business strategy could be considered aggressive. According to Zaks.ru, in 2002 a scandal erupted when Oseevsky and Traktovenko were included in the supervisory board of VEb-Invest Bank. The leaders of the VIB explained their appearance by the need for the arrival of authoritative specialists in the financial market.

The commotion, which arose in connection with rumors about Promstroybank's intention to crush another structure, forced Oseevsky in October of that year to ask him to withdraw from the council. But after that he was waiting for takeoff: the appointment of the vice-governor of St. Petersburg under Valentin Matvienko.

Since then, the bank has been doing even better - perhaps not without the help of a new city leader. And after Oseevsky became Deputy President-Chairman of the Board of VTB Bank - i.e., some time after the sale of Promstroybank to him.

True, before that there was a whole series of tragic events. In 2002, Leonid Davidenko, director of the management company Industrial and Construction Bank OJSC, was killed. Sources in the bank immediately linked this murder with the purchase of shares of Kotlas Pulp and Paper Mill OJSC by OJSC, Kommersant wrote about this. Apparently, not all its counterparties liked the bank's aggressive strategy.

And it wasn't the first bizarre murder in the bank's history. The year before, Nikolai Shatilo, chief of the Promstroybank security and information protection directorate, was killed in the front house of his own house. This murder was talked about for a long time in the business circles of the city. After all, it turned out that he was not just the chief security guard of Promstroybank, but also a participant in another banking business.

In 2000, Nikolay Shatilo joined the Board of Directors of JSC Vitabank, when, following the annual meeting of shareholders of the JSC, a new composition of the Board of Directors consisting of seven people was approved. Among them were people from ZAO "Banker House St. Petersburg" Traktovenko. After the change of composition, the positions of the CJSC were pretty weakened in Vitabak. Writes about this "Rosbalt" (recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation).

Tell me who your partner is

It seems that the murder of Shatilo could also be related to mergers and acquisitions of the Banker House, and the functionary himself could carry out special orders of shareholders. However, this is not necessarily due to David Traktovenko. Indeed, in the bank, among other owners, his partner was the scandalous entrepreneur Vladimir Kogan, although also very close to Traktovenko.

Previously, they tried to attribute to him many sins, up to raider seizures. And after working with Traktovenko, he rose to the rank of head of the Federal Agency for Construction and Housing and Public Utilities (Gosstroy) and Deputy Minister of Regional Development. Surely this career rise of the former partner turned out to be useful for the developer David Traktovenko.

At the same time, after that, Mr. Kogan even managed to become a sanatorium for the collapsed Uralsib bank, as previously reported by The Moscow Post. At the same time, there were rumors, allegedly Vladimir Kogan was friends with Sergei Stepashin (ex-head of the Accounts Chamber), and the latter's wife, Tamara Stepashina, even worked at the St. Petersburg Banking House.

In 2011, a scandal erupted when a certain report "Power of Families-2011" appeared on the Internet. The government. " It spoke about the alleged connection of Stepashin and his family with big business. It would seem that it could be an ordinary "stuffing." But the immediate reaction of the Accounts Chamber, which demanded to immediately delete the report, leads to completely different thoughts.

Stepashin's possible connections with Kogan were also explained by the sharp "pumping" of the latter with tasty assets in Moscow. According to the authors of the site kompromat.wiki, there was allegedly a scandal when the state-owned company Mosmetrostroy passed to the structures of Mr. Kogan, who "suddenly" turned out to be the chairman of its board of directors. As if the experts were talking about the withdrawal of assets.

It is unlikely that David Traktovenko lost contact with his former partner. At that time, however, he was already a billionaire and enjoyed life. For example, he actively invested in sports. Only if earlier he was a shareholder of Zenit, then since 2005 he has been invested in foreign assets - he became the owner of the Australian football club Sydney.

The investments paid off: from 2010 to 2017, the club became the champion of Australia. But Traktovenko was no longer interested in Russian sports. For example, he refused to finance the Voronezh FC Fakel, which was in dire need of this, as reported by his son Vyacheslav. I.e. made money here, but spent overseas?

Moreover, after the start of the Western sanctions war against the Russian Federation in 2015, he even increased his capital in Sydney from 60% to 88%.

Even after the start of the SVO, when almost the whole country was under Western sanctions, Traktovenko never sold the Australian club. And for some reason our former partners did not have any special complaints about him, unlike the masses of other Russian businessmen. Apparently, there he is already more "his" than in his homeland, which can be used by his family only as a "feed base."
