Chairman who likes sushi

Ivan Gromov, the chairman of Information and communication Committee of St. Petersburg acts as an experienced raider by participating in business ventures via his counterfeits. He uses his connections in the Central Apparatus of the Ministry of Internal Affairs from which he had to resign some years ago. More than that, he sets up access schemes to budget funds under his control that allow only his associates to receive government contracts.


We acquired this information from insider sources that asked not to mention their names or titles. Below is an outlook of a high-ranking official according them, whose official biography is spotless.


From Ministry of Internal Affairs to Smolny

In 2011 Ivan Gromov was awarded a rank of lieutenant colonel by serving in the Department of Economic Security of Ministry of Internal Affairs. Among other duties he also specialized on work with the companies that imported sushi ingredients to Russia. This activity is very specific and one of its particularities is that it takes 2.5 or 3 months for the freight from Japan, China or Hong Kong to reach Russia. Therefore, the money turnover was very slow and not every  businessman could afford this. This business market is relatively small, so everyone knows each other and certain specifics exists.

Ivan Gromov founded a company «Iona» that was active on Moscow's market. It was headed by spouses Ogurechnikov, who were former Gromov's school classmates. Company's turnover was small and its assets smounted several million Russian roubles.

However, one day Gromov offered a partnership to one famous businessman. At that time he had already resigned from the Department of Economic Security and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Gromov didn’t have any concrete perspectives, but his father helped him to employ – Alexander Gromov worked with Georgy Poltavchenko in Moscow, where the latter was an authorized representative of the President in Central Federal District. Thus, Gromov became a Smolny official.

After a formal activity as a deputy in one of the Smolny Committees, he was quickly promoted to head a Department of Informatisation and Communication. It seemed that he was relatively good employed and that it was time for him to simply serve  his city. But not in Gromov’s case who seemingly can not act quietly and honestly.


A turtle on a snake

Presumably in his private business Ivan Gromov wanted to clear the market for his own companies and acting according to his previous methods that he exercised in the Department of Economic Security, he created a company and recruited his former subordinates that were still employed at his prior workplace. These employers assisted to the collapse of the companies “Ribniy Den” (“Fish Day”) and “Sushi Haus” that even until now can not recover from the blow. The reasons for which the two prominent companies were grounded is Gromov’s know-how that he developed for his new companies when he imported sushi ingredients to Russia.

However, let us go back to the hapless business who as in infamous myth acted as a turtle who helped to transport a snake. When the snake finally crawled down from the turtle it still managed to bite the animal.

Ivan Gromov became a partner of the company with a turnover of several hundred million roubles and a customer network in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Gromov assured his new business partner that he is the founder of Moscow companies with which the company dealt with. A naïve businessman did not even check the papers as he fully trusted the former lieutenant colonel of the police and a chairman of Smolny committee;  although he shouldn’t have.

According to the papers, the founder of the companies was completely another person. And as a result of fraud and forgery, by constructing a conspiracy against his benefactor with the company’s director und using Ogurechnikov spouses again, who were not officially employed, he neatly nicked more than 100 million roubles ( partially the money were cynically withdrawn from the account, and the rest was taken in expensive goods to companies controlled by Gromov himself).


In chairman’s place

After an excellent training in the Department of Economic Security of Ministry of Internal Affairs, the newly appointed official began to act as a crasher of many businessmen. An audit chamber was working during the first year of Gromov’s activity in the Department of Economic Security. It was uncovered that with Gromov’s arrival in December 2012 in astoundingly short amount of time several billion of roubles had been disbursed.

Usually funds’ disbursement happens according to such scheme:

A certain budget exists (budget funds) which is precisely determined and where a plan exists according to which the budgets of certain levels should be disbursed. In order to use the budget funds it is necessary to organize a competition or an auction. And according to Gromov’s instructions a “correct” company that should win an auction was chosen.

Then, together with a possible beneficiary officials have to decide how to organize competition procedures in accordance with the Federal Law 94 and Federal Law 44. The plan should comply with an already assigned competition winner, minimal expenses for the final product and maximum factors that will estimate a fictional budget.

A contractor assigns specific conditions in order to compete, that only his own company can supply; an official promotes the highest price for the final product and tries to utilize the budget up to a maximum. By joint forces a specification is prepared, a lot is allocated, several other applications are filed in order not to raise suspicions from anti-monopoly authorities. At the final stage a required company wins competition that only minimally lowers the price.

After the right company wins, part of the money obtained in the competition return to officials in cash in the amount that was agreeed upon in advance. Sometimes the amount of the returned money can come up to 60% from the sum of the government contract. And the field of activity of the Informatisation and Communication committee is such, that it is almost impossible to control exact expenses for the product.

A question arises: can a person who all the time mistakes his personal possessions with the state ones, control the billions of the budget? 




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.


«Письмо в Ваш адрес дало обратный эффект»

Жители острова Майский Ленинградской области написали повторное открытое письмо губернатору Александру Дрозденко с просьбой сохранить железнодорожный переезд – единственную дорогу к их домам. После первого обращения к высшему должностному лицу региона железнодорожники пообещали сохранить переезд и почему-то начали его демонтировать.


Страховые мошенники перезагрузились

В бизнес автострахования Петербурга пришла беда, которую не ждали, — новая схема воровства, где классические угонщики уже ни при чем. Несмотря на заявление об угоне 24 марта нового «Хендэ Соляриса», в Адмиралтейском районе не спешат с возбуждением уголовного дела. В перспективе потерпевшая вряд ли получит страховку в «РЕСО».
