The Khadzhievs’ Rosbusinessbank "hooks" Gavrilenko?

Did the Khadzhievs, together with the "pension king" Anatoly Gavrilenko, "collapse" Rosbusinessbank, "pulling out" all funds from it to foreign accounts?

According to the correspondent of The Moscow Post, the Central Bank (CB) revoked the license from Rosbusinessbank. According to the data of the CB, the organization committed violations of legislation in the field of countering the laundering of income obtained illegally and the financing of terrorism. In addition, more than 50% of the loan portfolio was represented by problem loans. Did "bankster" Anatoly Gavrilenko, together with the Khadzhiev family, who were associated with the criminal world by malicious tongues, destroy the financial institution, withdrawing money to offshore companies?

Business at the Bank seemed to be really bad. The Central Bank found that over the past year, Rosbusinessbank repeatedly overstated the amount of its own funds, providing an incorrect calculation of capital. Against this background, the credit institution entered into non-transparent transactions with an affiliated company that were non-market in nature.

Apparently, the structure was destroyed on purpose. This could have been done because Salambek Khadzhiev, whose family controlled the Bank, died in 2018. His daughter, Leila Khadzhieva, remained on the Board of Directors. His wife Svetlana Gairbekova, daughter Aset Khadzhieva and son Bulat  Khadzhiev also worked there. Muslim Khadzhiev was the Deputy Chief Accountant, and Aina Khadzhieva was Head of the Credit Service Department.

Khadzhiev himself once held a solid state post - he was the Minister of Chemical and Petrochemical Industry of the USSR.

The Bank came under the control of Chechen natives after the death of the Chairman of the Board Ivan Kivelidi in 1995. He was poisoned with Novichok combat poison by order of Vladimir Khutsishvili, a member of the Board of Directors of Rosbusinessbank, as Kommersant wrote. The murder then made a lot of noise -entrepreneurs were afraid of how deep the crime had penetrated into Russian business. But, wait a bit, it's not easy to get combat poison!

And how can we not remember that spiteful critics have repeatedly claimed that Rosbusinessbank was associated with Chechen-Ingush criminal groups. So the Bank could be "pocket" for the criminal world? In this case, it is not surprising that the Central Bank found so many violations in its activities - the criminals acted on many fronts, didn’t they?

It seems that the scandals surrounding Rosbusinessbank have not subsided throughout its activities. In the same 1995, Lyudmila Lepko came to work there, and from there she moved to Renta Bank. She did not waste time at the new working place and organized a real criminal group that withdrew funds from a financial institution through shell companies. In total, Lepko managed to commit embezzlement for a total of 70 million rubles. Eventually, in 2017, she was sentenced to 3.5 years in prison, as Kommersant wrote.

The case has been investigated for almost six years, and already under her own recognizance, the woman returned to Rosbusinessbank again in 2010! There, the Khadzhievs received her with open arms and even tried to defend Lepko in the media comments about her criminal case, calling her a decent employee, incapable of any fraud. Or was she so loved there just because, as it turned out, she was quite capable?

It seems that a real criminal octopus ruled in the Bank! Surprisingly, law enforcement officers were not interested in the Khadzhievs themselves. But questions to them could arise: the Central Bank has previously paid close attention to the financial institution. As Kommersant wrote, in 2016, the Central Bank's Banking Supervision Department sent Rosbusinessbank a recommendation to adopt a self-restriction on attracting funds from individuals.

Apparently, the Khadzhievs successfully "settled in" in the credit organization. According to the, portal, the Bank's net assets "fell" by 211 million rubles over the past year.  The business was in a hurry to save its money as well, though not in Rosbusinessbank: loans to enterprises and organizations "went down" by 117 million rubles. Does it mean that, the Bank's collapse has been expected for a long time?

Probably, exactly since the same 2018 - then after the death of Khadzhiev, the Central Bank conducted an unscheduled audit of Rosbusinessbank. According to rumours, a number of violations could have been detected at that time.

Pensions sent to offshore companies

It is likely that money was banally withdrawn from the credit structure. Among the owners of the Bank, for example, is the State revenue Agency of the Ministry of Finance of Bulgaria with a share of 3.9%. Does it mean that funds could legally "settle" on foreign accounts?

In addition, "pension king" Anatoly Gavrilenko is allegedly involved in the Bank. According to the authors on the Kompromat portal, he was allegedly a member of the Bank's Board of Directors together with the Khadzhiev family. Did the "authoritative" family and scandalous "pensioner" work together? It is very likely.

Gavrilenko, together with his son, owns a "bundle" of large enterprises and billions of pension money. At the same time, apparently, he can "spend" the money of pensioners on shares and new funds, since the annual profit of his business did not allow him to do this. In addition, he was repeatedly suspected of withdrawing money to offshore companies. So maybe it was he who attracted the Bulgarian Ministry of Finance to Rosbusinessbank in order to "drain" money overseas?

Could, the money of Chechen-Ingush criminal elements pass through the financial organization in such a way?

It is possible that the money of many Russian businessmen also settled there - Gavrilenko has enough partners. For example, he worked closely with Gazprombank and its related structures through the Alor brokerage company controlled by him. The financier's active growth began after he had gained control of the small PPF Promagrofond in 2007. It was rumoured that he bought the organization in the interests of PPF Gazfond.

In 2011, it entered the PPF Uraloboronzavodsky with assets of 1.5 billion rubles at a ridiculous cost, which was not even 10% of the total asset price. That is, is a businessman favored by luck in life? It is strange then that things have become so bad for Rosbusinessbank. Or did he "successfully" withdraw money from there?

In 2013, Norilsk Nickel, the sixth largest PPF in terms of assets, was transferred to it, later renamed Naslediye. He also controls the PPF KIT Finance. And, according to market participants, Gavrilenko bought up all the PPFs in the interests of Gazprom structures.

But the Gavrilenko family does not profit from pensions alone. They have entered into another profitable industry - transport. in 2013, Anatoly Gavrilenko Jr. presented the Main Road project to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin for the construction of the Moscow Ring Road interchange. The project was estimated at 32 billion rubles and part of the funding goes to it, guess where from? That's right, from pension funds!

That is, in fact, the Gavrilenko family develops its business with other people's money! It's very convenient.

They "stuck their nose" into another profitable topic - waste. Their "Alor-Invest" once owned the regional operator of the Saratov region for the treatment of JSC Upravleniye Otkhodami. In 2019, the office was rewritten to JSC Concession of Defense and Security Facilities, the beneficiaries of which, however, are still father and son Gavrilenko.

Gavrilenko Sr. through Alor in 2015 invested 5.5 billion rubles in the construction of landfills in different cities of the country. And his offspring heads CJSC Leader, which may also have an interest in the waste topic.

As Kolomna News wrote, in 2019, the former Head of Zaraysk, the Moscow region, Oleg Synkov, was arrested. The reason is Solopovo, which was supposed to turn into a waste processing complex. Synkov was directly connected with JSC Upravleniye Otkhodami - he worked there as a General Manager.

Thus, can a criminal "karma" cover the Gavrilenkos and the Khadzhievs in the case of Rosbusinessbank? After all, it is likely that after such serious conclusions of the Central Bank, law enforcement agencies may be interested in the managers.
