Biruykov’s “Strelets” Anatomy


Alexander Chupriyan

Cynical raider seizure of the market of fire monitoring systems was undertaken by the companies linked to the Head of the Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of Leningrad Region. It became possible with the active help of  General-Colonel Alexander Chupriyan, the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Emergencies. On the grounds of creating a federal programme of automatic fire monitoring systems, Chupriyan helped his associates to monopolise this business sector.

 

Invisible connection

The beginning of this grandiose  all-Russian fraud dates back to 1993. Two events that when separated from each other appeared rather inconspicuous, happened at that time.

Firstly, in 1993 Alexander Petrovich Chupriyan, who was unremarkable at that time was appointed as the Deputy of the Head of the Managing Office of the State Fire Department of St.Petersburg and the Leningrad region. Nowadays this person who until 2006 worked in St.Petersburg is a Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Emergencies and holds a special rank of General-Colonel.

Secondly, some time after the above mentioned appointment two businessmen from St.Petersburg – Sergei Levchuk and Alexander Mescheryakov founded “Argus Spectre” (since then, the two of them became long-time business partners and founded more numerous legal entities). At that time there were no signs of future success of just one of hundred thousands companies that were registered in St. Petersburg.

So, what connects these two particular events that happened simultaneously?

 

Old-time friends

Personal life of these businessmen is a question to this answer.

Sergei Anatolievich Levchuk graduated in 1977 from the faculty of Radio Physics of the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute. Upon graduation he worked in research complex that developed the technologies of managing nuclear power facilities. He worked in the institute since 1981 and in 1989 wrote his PhD thesis. In 2004 he was awarded a title “Laureate of the Russian Government Award in Science and Technologies”. His colleagues describe him as an excellent manager.

Alexander Vladimirovich Mescheryakov is a graduate from State Fire Academy. Supposedly it was him, who introduced his business partner Sergei Levchuk to the company of the colleagues from the Ministry of Emergenies (at that time the firemen were related to the Ministry of Internal Affairs). In particular he was well acquainted with Sergei Biryukov who until 2005 worked for various departments of the State Fire Services (he completed his service in the Ministry of Emergencies in the rank of the Head of the Managing Office of St.Petersburg of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation).

Sergei Biryukov and Alexander Chupriyan are long-time friends.

When Sergei Biryukov retired in 2005 and devoted himself solely to his business. In 2006 Alexander Chupriyan wad promoted and moved to work in Moscow, where he was appointed to the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Emergencies. In 2008 this long-time friendship gave its first financial results.

 

The birth of «Strelets»

On the 5th of August Alexander Chupriyan, General-Colonel of the Ministry of Emergencies signed the «Concept of the construction of the radio-channel system of addressed monitoring of the security of the facilities”. To put this concept into life several government contracts were signed. The aim of these contracts was the development of the construction documentation and test samples of the programmable complexes to install the automatic fire monitoring systems at various facilities.

Thus a programmable unit «Strelets-Monitoring» was conceived. In October 2009 an act that approved government tests was signed. On the 23rd of October 2009 top managers of the Ministry of Emergencies signed a paper, called 3-SR that specified “Sterelets” as the equipment to be used by the Federal Fire Departments.

On the 28th of December 2009 the Ministry of Emergencies issued an Order #743 with a complex name «Supply in the Ministry of Emergencies System of the programmable units of the system of monitoring, data processing and transfer of the ignition parameters, threats and risks of fire in complex buildings and facilities with the extensive number of people, including high-rise buildings”.

Until this moment all the taken steps looked only as a pure concern for the fire safety of the country. However, on the May 31st, 2010 a particular event took place that actually made it clear why these actions were actually taken.

On that day, the management of the Ministry of Emergencies executed an Order #743. In order to do so, a State contract #263/2476/300P for the delivery of «Strelets» programmable units was signed with «Argus Spectre», a company from St. Petersburg. Let us remind (http://oglaskaspb.com/eng/authority/a152/), that this company is linked to the family of Maxim Biryukov, the Head of the Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies through Sergey Levchuk, Director general and co-founder  of the «ZTM» and «SM Leningrad Region» companies.

On June 3rd, 2010 Alexander Chupriyan, General-Colonel and the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Emergencies and a close friend of Segei Biryukov, signed off an order (43-2148-28) for the supply of programmable units «Strelets-Monitoring» to the departments of the Fire Department of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation.

From that moment on, Biryukov's family and «Argus-Spectre» had all the legitimate grounds to monopolise the market of fire monitoring systems.

Although, it seems more correct to say that this was only their assumption – no document stated the private companies cannot use the equipment other than the one produced by “Argus Spectre”. Officially, “Strelets” programmable units became compulsory only for the Ministry of Emergencies Departments; however a major attempt to push out the equipment of other producers from the market.

 

Predictable result

It’s not surprising that on August 8, 2008 – three days after the “Concept of the construction of the complex radio-channel system of addressed monitoring of the security of facilities” was signed by Alexander Chupriyan, the deputy minister of the Ministry of Emergencies, a LLC “A service of fire monitoring” was founded in Moscow. The co-founder of the company was LLC “ZTM” whose Director general was the infamous Sergey Levchuk.

At that time, there was nothing surprising in this fact. However, later when Mr. Levchuk altogether with the Biryukov family began the seizure of market of fire automatics, it was found out that actually only two companies in Russia are authorised to service the «Strelets Monitoring» equipment. These companies are: LLC «The fire monitoring service» and LLC «SM Leningrad Region». In the first company Sergey Biryukov, the former deputy of the Head of Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation and a long time friend of Alexander Chupriyan worked as a regional director and in the second company was actually headed by him.

Therefore, the first person in the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation created a massive federal programme that was suited the interests of a particular business-structure. This is a brilliant example of how an official position can be used in favour of ones personal interests.

Депутат Соловьев – выходец из порнобизнеса

 Бизнес-досье этого народного избранника выглядит, пожалуй, самым неожиданным. В его биографии присутствует легальное участие в порноиндустрии – он был бизнес-партнеров известно порномагната Сергея Пряннишникова. Все остальное свидетельствует о его стабильном, но скромном по депутатским меркам достатке.

AUTHORITY

Детектив с тайными агентами

В Петербурге разворачивается очередной шпионский детектив, в центре которого всё то, что необходимо для жанра: продажные сотрудники спецслужб, преступные лидеры задержания и крупные суммы денег.

SOCIETY

В Петербурге перестают платить за бензин

Полиция регистрирует по 5-6 заявлений ежедневно. Суммарные убытки участников рынка достигают десятков миллионов рублей в год. Бензин еще вырастет, и будет хуже. Еще год назад в Петербурге не было принято уезжать с заправок, не оплатив залитый бензобак, бывало такое, но редко. И собственники АЗС не обращались в полицию. К концу 2017-го случаи были один-два в неделю на 700 станций города. Практиковать бесплатную заправку активно начали в марте 2018-го: заявления о кражах поступали почти ежедневно. К октябрю, по данным «Фонтанки», полиция регистрирует уже по пять-шесть случаев каждый день, за редким исключением. Но уголовными делами заканчивается лишь десятая часть.

BUISNESS

В Бишкеке пытались взорвать петербургского бизнесмена

Взрыв у офиса киргизского филиала петербургской консалтинговой компании ее владелец Александр Гайдуков считает второй попыткой его убить из-за корпоративного конфликта в компании, которая специализируется на выпуске шпионского оборудования для российских спецслужб.
