Opanasenko and Chubais will drink from Baikal

The path from Vsevolod Opanasenko, who received a criminal record for embezzlement, can go through Rusnano and lead to Anatoly Chubais. Managers of Rostec could also have their own interests in the affairs of the entrepreneur.


The path from Vsevolod Opanasenko, who received a criminal record for embezzlement, can go through Rusnano and lead to Anatoly Chubais. Managers of Rostec could also have their own interests in the affairs of the entrepreneur.

The indictment decision of the court ended a high-profile criminal case against the founder of the T-Platform IT company Vsevolod Opanasenko. He was found guilty of major fraud in the supply of computer equipment to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, he will spend the next two years in a colony.

However, in the situation with Opanasenko, the interests of more influential people could be "protected." His business turned out to be indirectly connected with the activities of the infamous Russian state corporation Rusnano, which the whole country had to save from bankruptcy - i.e., of course, the Russian treasury.

The founder and main ideological inspirer of Rusnano and many undertakings related to the state corporation, the "young reformer" of the 90s Anatoly Chubais has long been abroad. But the "legacy" that he left to the country continues to live its life - including through court sentences, such as which the court ruled against Opanasenko the day before.

Details - in the material of the correspondent of The Moscow Post.

Stealing is not good at all. And it's even worse to steal on children or the safety of people. Just the protection of the security, rights and freedoms of citizens could prevent the fraud of Mr. Opanasenko, because we are talking about the Ministry of Internal Affairs. The amount of damage is 357 million rubles, the full price of the contract. And if they put at least something, but nothing, in general!

Together with Vsevolod Opanasenko, the ex-head of the communications department of the Department of Information Technologies, Communications and Information Protection of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Alexander Alexandrov and the head of one of the departments of the Voronezh University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Oksana Bokova are involved in this case. And it's good if, if guilty, they are given real terms.

After all, one gets the feeling that the defendants may be patronized. Judge for yourself - for the theft of over 300 million rubles from the budget, the prosecutor's office asked for nine years in prison for Opanasenko, but received only two and four months. Considering that he has been in jail since 2019, it turns out that he should be released right now?

How much "Baikal" for the people

And Opanasenko can be helped by people who themselves could launch their hands into budgets - and using state support mechanisms and under polyphonic singing about modern technologies and import substitution.

Opanasenko is the owner of T-Platforms LLC. In 2008, it was liquidated by transformation into T-Platforms JSC. It was the latter that received state contracts. And the agreement with the Ministry of Internal Affairs is far from the only one in the structure's portfolio.

In total, the company has government orders in the amount of 9 billion rubles. Most, oddly enough, with Moscow State University, for the supply of equipment and software. Attention is also attracted by contracts for the supply of programs using the domestic Baikal processor.

And here is a coincidence, the same Vsevolod Opanasenko in the period from 2015 to 2021 acted as the founder of Baikal Electronics JSC, a company for the production of Baikal processors, almost one of the main Russian projects in the field of IT.

This topic is strongly promoted by the state corporation Rostec under the leadership of Sergei Chemezov and the Ministry of Industry and Trade under the leadership of Denis Manturov. Just in 2021, Baikal manufacturers received two multi-billion dollar subsidies for the development of new chips. One of them will be focused on laptops, the other on powerful servers. During the second of these projects, it is planned to release a processor whose characteristics are comparable to an AMD chip.

It was assumed that the latter will appear in 2022, but things are still there. And Opanasenko left the owners clearly under the oppression of his criminal case - it could damage the possible receipt of banknotes from the budget.

However, it is unlikely that this money would go for future use. Despite the fact that the company received state contracts, and Baikal themselves enjoyed budgetary support, at the end of 2021, Baikal Electronics JSC suffered a net loss of 194 million rubles. Could money simply be withdrawn from the structure?

It seems that something was suspected in the Ministry of Industry and Trade. In 2021, the department sued Baikal Electronics JSC, demanding more than 700 million rubles from the company in two claims. The essence of both is very simple: the companies provided more than a billion rubles of subsidies. Of course, the achievement of targets was a prerequisite - in this case, successes in the development and production of domestic processors.

But Baikal Electronics, apparently, did not cope with its task. Or maybe he did not take up her decision at all, disposing of the money at his discretion. As a result, the Ministry demanded fines for the subsidy used. For unknown reasons, the Ministry of Industry and Trade was refused to satisfy both claims. Budget money "disappeared," or did not want to give way to business in the Ministry of Industry and Trade itself?

By the way, through the now liquidated company Micronik Press, the founder of which is the disgraced Opanasanko, he is associated with Sergei Yanev, a native of Rostov structures. The latter is also listed as the founder of Micronik Press, and was previously the director of Edelweiss LLC, the ultimate beneficiary of which is NCI LLC, which was part of the state corporation. So it is possible that Opanasenko was not engaged in clean business under the auspices of Chemezov's officials.

Returning to the T-Platform, the company, like Vsevolod Opanasenko himself, was declared bankrupt. At the same time, according to the results of the last reporting year 2018, it earned 633 million rubles of net profit, and this figure grew from year to year. The question is - where did bankruptcy suddenly come from, maybe it is fictitious? In this case, Opanasenko's inability to close debts to creditors may also be fictitious, which caused his personal bankruptcy.

Moreover, there were several attempts to bankrupt T-Platforms. The first almost ended in success back in 2020, when the Federal Tax Service filed a bankruptcy lawsuit. The company came out of that story safely, and even received a new CEO. It was Kirill Alifanov, who replaced Opanasenko himself in this post.

Earlier, Alifanov worked for Uralkali, controlled by the scandalous oligarch Dmitry Mazepin. Its structures themselves breathe into incense, Uralkali and Uralchem are mired in debt. A few years ago, the question arose of their possible bankruptcy, which could be a disaster for the domestic potash industry.

However, Alifanov was not the general director for a long time - in October 2022 he was replaced by Sergei Kononov - he acted as the bankruptcy trustee of the bankrupt organization. What goals were set for Alifanov is unknown, but given his previous place of work, Dmitry Mazepin may also have his own interests in this story.

Look for Chubais

T-Platforms JSC was the founder of a number of organizations, most of which were liquidated. The other part is like candid dummies. Some liquidated raise questions: for example, the bankrupt JSC "Numerical Mechanics," which, with revenue of 150 million rubles, managed to get a loss of almost 50 million rubles at the end of 2021.

But there is another, operating company "T-Nano," the founders of which "T-Platforms" were from 2015 to 2021. I.e. from there, Opanasenko's company came out only after the start of a high-profile corruption scandal, and when he himself was already in jail. This may be an attempt to cover up the traces of some unseemly cases.

And the second founder of this structure was and remains the Foundation for Infrastructure and Educational Programs, a division of the state corporation Rusnano, which aims to "create the infrastructure of the Russian nanoindustry and is part of the system of Russian development institutions (" innovative elevator "). The Fund is financed from the federal budget.

I.e. the money for which the company existed is state-owned. This is a joint venture between Opanasenko and Rusnano, which until recently was headed by Anatoly Chubais. And they were engaged in nano-topics, which, under the leadership of Chubais, in our country was a little more than completely failed.

T-Nano's assets currently amount to 1 billion rubles. The assets of the fund itself are 25 billion rubles, i.e. this is a lot of money. What exactly "T-Nano" has been doing under Opanasenko for all recent years, what their work results are unknown. Apparently, the same as that of Rusnano are negative. And this is with the authorized capital over 250 million rubles - the money is clearly not from Opanasenko's pockets. Most likely, from the assets of the fund, i.e. again state.

T-Nano turned out to be the founder of more than 40 subsidiaries, as well as a management company for dozens of firms. Apparently, we can talk about a whole scheme for the possible pumping out of the Fund's money in a one-day company. It is noteworthy that the general director of T-Nano is Stanislav Sokolov. He is also the general director of the Union "CTT RAS and Rusnano," i.e. this is clearly still a Chubais frame.

Stubborn "reformer"

But nothing has been heard about Chubais himself for a long time. After he left the country almost immediately after the start of the SVO, he was seen in Israel, then in Italy, then in Turkey. But Rusnano remained in Russia with debts under 80 billion rubles. In the fall of 2022, the Government of the Russian Federation was forced to pay about 9 billion rubles on a bond loan, plus another 560 million rubles in the income of creditors.

It was about the sixth bond loan placed by the company back in 2015. But there was a seventh, an eighth, and a ninth. In 2018, the company placed bonds for 10 billion rubles, in 2019 - for 16.5 billion rubles, in 2020 - for 12 billion rubles. At the end of the first half of 2021, Rusnano had outstanding loan obligations of 76.3 billion rubles, while obligations on bond loans were 70.4 billion rubles.

I.e. the threat of bankruptcy to Rusnano has not disappeared anywhere. Now, according to evil tongues, on the eve of a likely collapse, Rusnano structures are trying to wash out everything that is possible, to withdraw the maximum amount of funds. After all, responsibility for this may not be borne - the main ideologist of the structure is far away, its managers also fled like cockroaches in the world.

Chubais understood best - the main thing is to leave the country on time. Photo: https://panorama.pub/news/cubajs-zaavil-cto-hotel-by

Apparently, Vsevolod Opanasenko, detained in 2019, just turned out to be one of those who could be associated with serious capital with Chubais structures, but simply did not have time to escape - after all, he had nothing to do with Rusnano directly. However, it is possible that such a short period - 2 years and 4 months, he was given just with an eye to the imminent departure from the country.
