The ministry of Emergencies is feels threatened by spies

Viktor Luzin

Installing fire monitoring systems in the buildings can be a threat to the strategic security of Russia and can be exploited by international spies. This allegation is not a prank, but an official claim made by Viktor Lousin, the Chief State Fire Monitoring Inspector of Leningrad Region in a failed attempt to push out from the market of fire monitoring systems a private company which owners refused to pay bribes to the Ministry of Emergencies officials.


The Head Inspector was asked to leave

A grotesque, incomprehensible allegation without any common sense was made by Viktor Lousin, a high-ranking official of the Head Department of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federations  in the Leningrad Region.

According to his standpoint, the professional activity of one of the most technologically advanced companies in the region that monitors a full function cycle of fire monitoring systems, LLC «Volna», is threatening the strategic security of the State and assists international spies interested in obtaining Russian military secrets.

Viktor Lousin spoke out this notable idea not during a private talk, but rather in an official claim that was addressed to the Main Department of Ministry of Interior Affairs of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region.  The Chief State Fire Monitoring Inspector of the Leningrad Region, Deputy of the Head of the  Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of Leningrad Region, the Colonel of the Interior Service ended four pages of the grotesque document with a proposal to charge Boris Alexandrov,  Director General of “Volna” company, on criminal account of “fraud” and “unlawful entrepneurship”) (article 159 and 171 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

A ruling turned down the filing of a criminal charge and was signed by three employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Nevsky Municipality of St. Petersburg. The ruling clarifies in detail that Director General of “Volna” company cannot be held on criminal charge due to the lack of incriminating evidence. However, in-between the impeccably polite explanations a sneer and an understanding of what the situation is all about, can be detected.

So, at the end of the document it is stated  that “the police has no authority to resolve civil conflicts between the Ministry of Emergencies and the parties cooperating with it”. In other words, the police has strongly advised the Colonel from the Ministry of Emergencies to stop making things out and not to pull them into a dispute that has nothing to do with a crime.


“Programme failure”

We have already published materials about the actions of the regional fire emergency services as well as about LLC “Volna”, one of the major players in this business sector (http://oglaskaspb.com/eng/authority/a116/). Let us remind some details again: special programmable fire monitoring units “Strelets-Monitoring” (“Archer-Monitoring”) suddenly ceased to take fire emergency signals that were comings from “Volna” monitoring centre. The latter was servicing automatic fire emergency equipment that was installed in more than 500 objects of the regions, including hospitals, schools and kindergartens. 

The «programme failure» was directly connected to the human factor – it happened after Boris Alexandrov, Director General of «Volna» company terminated the dubious service contract with the two companies: “Fire Monitoring Services” and the “Monitoring Service – Leningrad Region”. These contracts were purely fictional and not their contents but their connection to Sergey Biruykov, the former deputy of the Head of the Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of St. Petersburg.

The latter is the father of Maxim Biruykov, the Head of the Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of Leningrad Region, whose subordinates followed the orders to re-programm the “Strelets Monitoring” monitoring equipment installed at fire stations so that it won’t take emergency signals coming from “Volna” monitoring centre.

«Volna» representatives had to file complaints to the Arbitration Court of St Petersburg and Leningrad Region in order to make the fire emergency services take the fire emergency calls. In the court of first instance the representatives of the regional Ministry of Emergencies lost the case. However, they filed a claim to the 13th Arbitration Appelation Court and also to the police. The claim that was filed to police was signed by Boris Lousin whose creative approach was evident in allegations against Boris Alexandrov.


«Pre-conditions for espionage»

In his claim Colonel Lousin constructed a grotesque logical chain. First he claimed:

“The fact that LLC “Volna” provided services can be proved by the contracts with the companies….the contracts directly point on the existence of the connection network….that uses radio-electronic connection equipment…. The following activity is illegal…and is of a threat to the safety of the State...”

Afterwards, Lousin gives a extensive list of judicial terms which are hard to grasp, but they all point in one direction: according to him LLC “Volna” instead of providing fire emergency services provides connection services for which it has no licence. Therefore, it can be labelled as illegal enterprise.

It seems that Viktor Lousin is the first Russian official who arrived to the idea as to label the transfer of automatic fire emergency signals to the fire monitoring centre as connection services.

Another Colonel's creative expression that followed was his claim that LLC «Volna» illegally enriches itself by using assets and human resources of the State, meaning the Ministry of Emergencies when it takes the fire emergency calls and transfers it to fire services…” Lousin classifies this as crime and according to the Article 159 of the Criminal Act as “fraud”.

The Head Stated Inspector of the Fire Monitoring of Leningrad Region pretends to not be aware that “Volna” installs and uses a special automated equipment to transfer fire emergency signals. That means it does not require any human resources to transfer the signals to its own fire monitoring centre from locations that include schools, hospitals and kindergartens. Later the signals go to the according federal fire departments.

However, following his own logic Colonel Lousin comes to a terrifying conclusion:

“Therefore, the public danger ….of “Volna” activity in the field of fire security is not so much illegally created, but rather functions uncontrollably in the economic field. When the connection networks are used unsupervised the conditions for sabotage, espionage and terrorist acts are being developed…”


“Enjoy the peace while it lasts”

It could be easily predicted that such ridiculous claims will be turned down by the court. However, what is more surprising is that during the last fifteen years the Heads of the Head Department of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federations  in the Leningrad Region was fighting for its business interests instead of supervising fire safety conditions. This fight cannot be classified according to neither the acting legislation, nor to simple rules of business ethics.


 The newspapers are reporting this issue, the top-ranking officials of almost all of the law enforcement authorities and the Heads of the Ministry of Emergencies are aware of the situation but to no result. It seems that unprecedented cynism which the Heads of the Managing Office of the Ministry of Emergencies of Leningrad Region are using in order to win themselves a part in private business. The only proper reaction came from the Arbitration court of St. Petersburg and Leningrad region when it ordered the regional Ministry of Emergencies to take fire signals from “Volna” monitoring centre.


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.
