The company is planning to build a factory in the Moscow region at the expense of the OCG “Center”, how would that work?
Vitaly Kochetkov (beneficiary of Urafinance Bank) may be among the persons involved in this. The man is quite close friends with the governor Kuyvashev. Is there a possibility that Kochetkov is behind the “Grand Capital”, which is owned by Remenyako? Let’s figure it out.
The actual announcement that a pharmaceutical factory will be built on the territory of the industrial park “Esipovo” was made by the firm “Avexima”. Its main activity is the development of generics. In this vein, the connection with the “Grand Capital” is traced. Side note, investments in the construction project reach 5 billion rubles.
Open Joint Stock Company “Avexima” is owned by the offshore company from Cyprus “Avexima Limited”. And the one hundredth of the shares falls on the share of Elena Tkachenko, who before that was the General Directorof PFH Grand Capital which was liquidated at the end of 2020. The head of the company up until 2016 was Denis Remenyako, also the founder of PFH.
“Grand Capital” is the largest distributor in Russia. Recently there was new information that Remenyako bought a number of pharmacy chains in the regions and the capital. These are managed by the company “Heart of Russia”.
The chains include 2 hundred pharmacies located in the northern and western parts of Russia, as well as in the center. The beneficiary is Oksana Ogievich, who is also Remenyako’s business partner. Since September 2019, she is also a co-founder of Successful Investments, which is a subsidiary of Avexima OJSC.
What is behind such a case? Maybe Remenyako wants to “oust” Ogievich from the business environment? It is not excluded that the insider about pharmacy chains is a disguise for the implementation of the “displacement” plan.
“Grand Capital ” considers its main goal is to supply drugs to pharmacies and access to retail sales. There are plans to actively develop drugs with innovative technology. Step by step, Remenyako takes over the entire pharmaceutical market.
How did Remenyako get hold of these business projects?
Oblada Enterprises (offshore from Cyprus) owns an almost complete package (99.8 percent) of FC Grand Capital LLC. Remenyako has only 2 tenths of a percent. This suggests that Remenyako is not the firm’s beneficiary. Who is behind the offshore then?
The firm is not a leader in government orders. In its “portfolio” there are no more than 2.4 billion rubles. But in 2019, the total revenue of FC Grand Capital showed the amount of 61 billion rubles, and the profit was more than 300 million. Among the top customers is the Moscow Department of Health.
Generics are produced by Avexima on the basis of the Irbit Chemical and Pharmaceutical factory. It is located in the Sverdlovsk region. Another base is Avexima Siberia from the Kemerovo region.
It is not a secret that Kuyvashev is the man of Sergei Sobyanin, who is known as the mayor of Moscow. If you think about it, maybe Remenyako got Moscow contracts into his piggy bank for a reason?
Expansion of Grand Capital, provided that the process is “backed up” by Senator Rossel
Remenyako started his business in the Sverdlovsk region. By the way, the head of the region for 14 years (from 1995 to 2009) was Eduard Rossel. Since 2012, Rossel’s career has changed: in 2012, the new Governor Kuyvashev appointed Rossel a Senator by decree. Will a company of 2 politicians help Remenyako in the future?
Today “FC Grand Capital” is located in 13 Russian regions. There is no branch in Yekaterinburg. How can you expand so much if you do not have federal support?
The initial grain of truth regarding the beginning of the development of the Remenyako case was published by the newspaper Vecherniye Vedomosti. It said that Denis Remenyako might be familiar with the private security company “Gyurza. Also, among the acquaintances could be the former deputy of the Security Council of the Irbit chemical factory” – Valery Povarov.
At one time, the private security company “Gyurza” was associated as a structure of the organized criminal group “Center”. And as you know, “Center” is a very powerful structure of the criminal world. It was confronted by the “Uralmash” organized crime group in the region.
The raider seizure of the Irbit chemical factory happened in 2008, when Povarov, along with other members of the private security company, arrived at the factory’s territory, threatening to murder co-owner Ostanin to write off 60 percent of the papers to Remenyako. In addition, the entire group was armed with firearms.
According to Kommersant, Ostanin was most likely a member of the Uralmash organized crime group, which could have taken over the chemical factory earlier, in 2006. Therefore, the OCG “Center” did not wait long and in 2008 took all the assets, transferring them to Remenyako.
At that time, Kostyrev was the head of the economic bloc of the Uralmash organized crime group. In addition, his surname appeared in 3 dozen criminal cases! According to unspecified information, Kostyrev died in the United Arab Emirates, but in 2019 information appeared about his appearance in Prague.
Ostanin diligently tried to regain the enterprise, but everything ended not so rosy. Contrary to the entrepreneur, a criminal case was initiated on the basis of fraud.
Ostanin was able to “recapture” without proving his involvement. Then the law enforcement officers forcibly obtained a confession from Ostanin that the businessman was giving a bribe in the amount of a million rubles. This helped close another case against him. The bottom line is this: the officers of the authorities were tried, and Ostanin, whatever the outcome, received 8 years in prison.
According to other sources (Novaya Gazeta), Remenyako was included in the ranks of the FSB. It was there that Povarov and Voronov met, who at that time was the deputy head of the FSB department in the Sverdlovsk region. These two did a number of very “interesting” things, but they did not come into contact with Denis Remenyako at all.
What is the relationship between Remenyako and the FSB now? How do Remenyako companies work?
Today Remenyako’s companies work according to different schemes. Thus, the subsidiaries of FC Grand Capital are nevertheless united by one thing – they are not just at a loss, but they are not worth a positive, but a negative amount. In addition, what must be said to confirm the withdrawal of funds from the company?
Let’s consider the most striking examples.
FC Grand Capital Krasnodar has revenues of 5.6 billion rubles, and the loss is still more than 40 million rubles. What is a plus – the company does not even know.
Further “FC Grand Capital Voronezh”. Its revenue is more than 3 billion rubles, and more than 40 million rubles hang on the negative balance. Do you know what the value of the company is? Minus 160 million rubles. Next comes FC Grand Capital Tyumen. The situation here is no better: revenue of 1.7 billion rubles, loss of 16 million, cost – minus 100 million rubles. The next example of FC Grand Capital Yekaterinburg: revenue of 4 billion rubles, loss of 20 million, and cost – minus 123 million.
Surprisingly, all subsidiaries have grown sharply in revenue in recent years. What is the reason for this? Can profit finally play a more important role than just being reported? Or do you need to get rid of taxes?
How is the Sverdlovsk Region doing?
A vague doubt creeps in that the organized crime groups Uralmash and Center are at enmity to this day. And besides, the criminal world can be supplemented by persons from the ranks of the political elite.
Was it like this before? Yes it was. For 18 years (1992-2010) Chernetsky was the mayor of Yekaterinburg. In the election process, he was probably supported by the leader of the Uralmash organized crime group Khabarov. But whether it was so, we will not find out, since Khabarov died on the territory of the pre-trial detention center in 2005. By the way, Chernetsky is also now sitting in the SV, like Rossel.
In addition, there is information that Chernetsky and Rossel were in constant conflict with each other. Why? Maybe because Rossel supported the OCG Center?
In the early years of the nineties, 2 groups started a bloody war. According to information about 3 dozen people were killed in it. Many could simply not be found and not included in the number of victims.
There are rumors that Uralmash very actively pressed Rossel, who as a result met with Khabarov. Less than a couple of months later, Khabarov was arrested and transferred to a pre-trial detention center, from which, as we already know, he did not come out.
On whose side is Kuyvashev?
According to the latest data, the Uralmash organized crime group is represented in the Sverdlovsk region by Terentyev. He involved all ex-members of the organized criminal group in the company. By the way, those who served and left could now be the heads of various enterprises.
Some believe that the State Duma has a separate faction called Uralmashevskaya. Its representative is Vikharev, who is Terentyev’s son-in-law. In addition, the speaker of the Duma Volodin can take the side of Kochetkov.
According to some reports, Kochetkov is the “shadow mayor” of Yekaterinburg. No one excludes that the resignation of Vysokinsky (the recent mayor of Yekaterinburg) did not go without Kochetkov.
In addition, the businessman is represented by Alexander Gorodetsky. When you look at the finances of Bogdanovichsky Meat Processing factory LLC, which is headed by Kochetkov, you will recognize Remenyako’s similar style. The financial statements are as follows: revenue of 95 million, loss of more than 300 million, and the cost, with all this, goes into minus almost 1 billion rubles. What kind of news is this? How is this possible?
Perhaps Kochetkov is already ready for new elections to the Duma and wants to neatly “invite” his friends there. But this requires finances, then why be surprised in the situation with the factory? Therefore, Remenyako and his offshore companies are an ideal springboard for Kochetkov. Well, only if Kochetkov himself did not have “a couple of extra companies” lying around in Cyprus.
