Hunting fan is going to be brought to court

Vladimir Vasiliev
The Russian judicial practice has happened to have an extremely rare case: the bankruptcy manager has officially demanded to hold accountable the bankrupted company leader. This is the intermediate result of bankruptcy proceeding against the "Company Rus" - a former general contractor of the elite ski resort "Igora" (associated with the inner circle of President Vladimir Putin). And a prominent businessman Vladimir Vasiliev has been convicted to commit severe financial violations before the bankruptcy of the company had happened.


Unpaid millions

Bankruptcy of the "Company Rus" (its owner and CEO is a businessman Vladimir Vasiliev) was started in October last year by the initiative of LLC "TehnoBalt" to which "the Company Rus" had not paid for construction materials. That debt amounted to 5,000,000 rubles, and its undisputed as it was confirmed by a valid decision of the Arbitration Court of Saint Petersburg and Leningrad region, through which "TehnoBalt" tried to obtain the "Company Rus” the money.

During the bankruptcy of the company "Rus" there were interesting details revealed of its general director Vladimir Vasiliev. They forced the bankruptcy trustee Igor Kuzmin taking the unprecedented step by asking the court to draw Mr. Vasiliev vicarious liability as a director; he was accused of causing bankruptcy of the largest construction company in the Leningrad region at the time.


Never went to court

First, Vladimir Vasilyev did not do a simple thing: he did not initiate bankruptcy proceedings as soon as it became clear that the "Company Russia" was not going to repay. However, the 9th and 10thArticles of the Federal Law "On Insolvency (Bankruptcy)" require the head of the company to go to court in case the size of a business is significantly behind the size of the debt.

Mr. Vasilyev did not do so, even though he was aware of the situation: "The Company Rus" lost the court to "TehnoBalt" in 2010, and the trial was attended by representative of the "Rus" with the power of attorney signed by Vasiliev. At that time, the company assets were estimated at 360,000 rubles, the debt to "TehnoBalt” counted 5 million.

By law, Vladimir Vasiliev himself had to initiate bankruptcy of the enterprise in case of a debt of 100 000 and if the debt was impossible to repay. He had to do that within a month from the date of that accident.


He "forgot" about the debt

Secondly, the law requires another fairly simple thing from directors of companies: the accounting records should contain reliable information about the financial state of business. For example, there must be information about the debts of the enterprise.

As a bankruptcy trust, Igor Kuzmin has discovered, the financial statements of the "Company Rus" had no information about the debt to "TehnoBalt" at all. As a result, according to the financial statements, by the time the bankruptcy of the company, its debt amounted to 115,000 rubles, while in fact it amounted to 5,205,590 rubles ($ 5 million debt, plus court costs and fines).

Vladimir Vasilyev could not have been unaware of this, which implies quite a dreadful conclusion: he misrepresented financial statements of the enterprise on purpose.

He deceived a manager

But those were not the only questionable actions of the General Director of OOO "Company Rus".

The bankruptcy trustee Igor Kuzmin wrote in his statement on bringing Mr. Vasilievto vicarious liability: "a fraudulent misrepresentation of interim manager has been revealed during the monitoring procedure”.

During the monitoring procedure, Igor Kuzminasked Vladimir Vasilievfor the enterprise records of the amount of accounts receivable and accounts payable. According to those, for example, the receivables of the «Company Rus» amounted to 164,000 rubles on July 1, 2011.

Meanwhile, the statement of cash flows of the "Company Rus”, which manager Kuzmin received in the Savings Bank, stated that in 2008 the company loaned 900,000 rubles to two companies:" North-West Construction Company "Rus" and "Elena." Both companies had been set up by the same Vladimir Vasiliev and both never returned the loan money received - only60 000 Rub were returned.

Thus, accounts receivable of the "Company Rus” had to be 840,000 rubles instead of 164 000.


Do one’s correspondence...

Statement by the bankruptcy trust of bringing Vladimir Vasiliev to the vicarious liability has been frozen by the court at the moment. The reasons are formal - in the opinion of the court, Kuzmin did not enclose all the necessary documents into the application. But, according to our sources, the situation will be further developed in the coming days.

In this connection it is worth remembering (http://oglaskaspb.com/auto/a42/) that Igor Kuzmin warned in writing the management of JSC "Russian Railways" of financial impropriety of Vladimir Vasiliev. Caution was associated with the fact that another company by him - LLC "Corporation P Industry" –had gained multi-billion dollar contracts with "RZhD". Igor Kuzmin asked the vice president Bobreshov to confirm the receipt of large contracts by the «Corporation P-Industry ", but no reply followed.

Then Igor Kuzminsent similar letter to the president of "Russian Railways" Vladimir Yakunin. It is difficult to predict the response of the chief railman of Russia, but one should remember: the media have repeatedly written about the friendship between Vladimir Vasiliev and Vladimir Yakunin based on the shared hobby of hunting.


Dossier of "Oglaska":

LLC "Company Rus" was registered in 2002; from the very beginning it was owned by Vladimir Vasiliev. He had been the CEO until the moment this senior management position was taken by the bankruptcy trustee. Vladimir Vasiliev is known to journalists as a good friend of the President of JSC "Russian Railways" Vladimir Yakunin, whom he met thanks to the shared hobby of hunting.

As early as 2005 "Company Rus" was positioned as the largest woodworking companyin the Leningrad region, having its own major production and producing, in particular, chopped wooden houses.

Former Director General of the "Company Rus”, Vladimir Vasiliev took part in meetings with the local business elite by regional governor Valery Serdyukov; then he expressed the proposals for the development of regional economy. "Company Rus" was the general contractor for construction of an elite ski resort "Igora" which is associated with "friends of Putin" from the bank of "Rossia". That's the "Company Russia" who had manufactured beautiful wooden cottages for the "Igora".

After completion of the first phase of "Igora" for 50 million euros, the company legally declared the expansion of production and construction of a new plant in Priozersk district, the Leningrad region.

In late 2006, Information Agency «INFOLine» reported, "the largest production capacity (in the Leningrad region, ed.) belongs to the" Company Rus”, which is capable to producing up to 360 houses. "
