Andrey Misyura, General Director of the Middle Urals Development Corporation, told the media about the successes in his post. According to him, the main (and in fact the only!) project of KRSU is a technopark in the electronics industry.
It is understandable. After all, there is talk that his personal interests are buried there, as well as the interests of his former subordinate Sergei Novik.
Details are in the material of The Moscow Post correspondent in the Sverdlovsk region.
As soon as Misyur took up a new post, as our colleagues write, he managed to enter into a confrontation with the Minister of Investments of the Sverdlovsk Region Vadim Tretyakov. The fact is that, as they say, Misyura stepped aside from his other duties and is engaged only in an electronic technopark, forgetting about other projects entrusted to him.
Interestingly, in 2016, the regional prosecutor’s office brought to justice Andrey Misyura, who was then Minister of Industry, for serious violations related to the Universitetsky technopark. The agency found that the total amount of illegally spent budget funds amounted to 588.2 million rubles, ineffectively and inefficiently used – 651.8 million rubles. Misyura, however, was not hurt almost in any way – he was only fined 40 thousand rubles.
A few months later, Misyura nevertheless resigned and, having agreed with the director of Roscosmos Dmitry Rogozin, decided to return to his long-familiar job at NPO Avtomatiki, where he went from an ordinary specialist to a director. “NPO Avtomatiki” manufactures everything necessary for the space industry.
His stay at the “NPO Avtomatiki” was accompanied by a number of scandals. They are associated with both personnel decisions and financial ones. In addition, Misyura is not the last person involved in the unsuccessful launch of the Soyuz-2.1a spacecraft from the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
As Misyura explained, the launch of the spacecraft failed because at NPO Avtomatika most of the drawings are made on paper, and when they were transferred to a computer, the human factor worked and some designations were lost.
But this unsuccessful launch also played into the hands of Misyura. The former director of “NPO Avtomatika” Leonid Shalimov lost his post, and Misyura had a place to return after a series of failures in the government chair.
Under Misyura, mass layoffs began at NPO Avtomatiki. According to some sources, almost a thousand people were allegedly laid off there in two years.
In addition, employees said that appointments in the management are made “by good connections, rather than by experience and knowledge.”
For example, Misyura took the former deputy regional OFAS for the Sverdlovsk region, Evgeny Ruzhnikov, as his deputy. Ruzhnikov was slavbo versed in rockets, but judging by his previous position, he was much better at manipulating public procurement. However, six months later, Misyura fired Ruzhnikov – apparently deciding that it would be easier to control the budget, having direct access to Rogozin.
Misyura also created new positions for specific people. So, one of the main persons at the enterprise was a friend of the top head of Roscosmos Andrei Kalinovsky, Petr Aksanyan, and Alexander Bolgarsky, a retired honorary general, was appointed chief engineer.
Misyura’s wife also received a promotion, becoming the executive director of NPO Avtomatiki. Other valuable personnel turned out to be attached to the enterprise: for example, the brother of the wife and the sister of Misyura himself.
Even the former general director of the enterprise, Leonid Shalimov, openly criticized Misyuru, calling him a “zero” leader.
Even after several years of leadership of NPO Avtomatika, Misyura was unable to rid him of the current problems associated with a lack of orders. The production of optical sensors for eight years since the start of development, for which 170 million rubles were allocated, has not been started. The money had to be returned to the treasury.
Salaries at the enterprise were reduced several times, but it was whispered that bonuses were supposedly regularly paid to the management staff.
Inappropriate spending of budgetary funds was found by Misyura and in NPO Avtomatika, in federal projects. This time they found violations for 500 million rubles – and this despite the fact that the company as a whole was allocated 800 million rubles. In other words, two-thirds of the state money went down the drain.
But even this is not the main thing. According to spiteful critics, Misyura, together with one of the directors, Sergei Novik, organized his own production in one of the industrial parks, where he took the equipment of a scientific enterprise under the pretext of creating engines for diesel locomotives. Recall that it was Misyura who was responsible for all technoparks in the Sverdlovsk Region when he served as Minister of Industry of the Sverdlovsk Region.
Now it is clear why Misyura invests in the technopark and convinces everyone that this is a cool idea and project.
