Fraudster Pavel Fuks returns to Russia?
After the appearance in the media of information about the possible return of Pavel Fuks to Russia, investigators are actively looking for his assets and their holders.
In May, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) suspected Pavel Fuks of financial fraud. Since 2018, the businessman has been buying up the debts of enterprises for a pittance, after which he got involved in their economic activities, and then went bankrupt. Fuchs’s partner in Ukraine was the oligarch Igor Kolomoisky.
Pavel Fuks in Russia is a defendant in three criminal cases, but continues to do business through his people, who in the very near future may fall under the “sight” of the security forces. The billions previously stolen by Pavel Fuks bring him a good profit. On it, he bought up the debts of Ukrainian companies.
Recently, traces of Pavel Fuks were discovered in the family business of Alexander Bryskin, a senator from the Kursk region. From 2017 to 2021, his daughter Svetlana was a co-founder of CJSC RTK Garantiya. As of January 1, 2022, Pavel Fuks, who is located in Ukraine, was among the owners of the company.Svetlana Bryskina, together with Natalya Yezheleva, owns the Petr I Hotel LLC. Yezheleva is a business partner of Yegor Bryskin, the son of a senator.
Another co-founder of CJSC RTK Garantiya, Alexander Ter-Avanesov, now holds the position of Senior Vice President of VTB Bank. One of the criminal cases of Pavel Fuks is connected with theft from the Russian International Bank (RMB), in which in 2007-2010. Alexander Bryskin served as Vice President.
Ter-Avanesov is a long-time partner of Pavel Fuks in Nefthold LLC, Capital-Stroy CJSC and Magic Planet CJSC. At Nefthold LLC, Fuchs and Avanesov’s partner was Nikolai Makarov, who from 2016 to 2022 was a co-founder of the National Public Recognition Foundation, along with Vladislav Tretyak, Sergey Stepashin and Lyubov Sliska.
Another partner of Fuchs and Ter-Avanesov in Nefthold LLC was Nikolai Borodin, whose companies were liquidated. Perhaps they took part in the schemes of Pavel Fuks.
In CJSC Capital-Stroy, Sergey Dorodnykh, who is now running a successful construction business, was a co-founder along with Fuchs and Ter-Avanesov. The third criminal case of Pavel Fuks is connected with the theft of 7.2 billion rubles. on the construction of the Sky House residential complex. Isn’t this money used by Sergey Dorodnykh’s companies?
In CJSC Magic Planet, partners of Pavel Fuks and Alexander Ter-Avanesov were several individuals.
Leonid Barenboim is the owner of 11 operating companies, the total value of which is 603 million rubles. Leonid Rakov is Barenboim’s business partner. Leonid Zaitsev owns 2 operating companies, Vladimir Livshits – 8, well-known restaurateur Arkady Novikov – 88. Could Pavel Fuks withdraw money through his companies?
The activities of numerous structures of Arkady Novikov are definitely not similar to a profitable business.
Pavel Fuks also showed up in Ter-Avanesov’s liquidated company Inter Standard LLC.
In this company, Fuks and Ter-Avanesov’s partners were Amir Gallyamov, his full namesake was a member of the Federation Council from 2007 to 2011. The media wrote about the politician’s close connection with the criminal world and special services. In the 90s, the future senator was a member of the Izmailovo organized criminal group and had a long funeral train behind him.
Pavel Fuks knew how to be friends with both the authorities and criminal structures, because he himself came from an organized criminal group, he was a close friend of the late Gennady Kernes, the former mayor of Kharkov, known in certain circles under the nickname “Hepa”.
It is not surprising that Pavel Fuks with enviable regularity became a defendant in criminal scandals. The last criminal case against him concerned a scam in the Moscow region. Together with his accomplices Evgeny Komrakov and Bekbolat Bekenov, Fuchs stole 85 million rubles. during the construction of a cottage settlement. Now a whole construction empire is working on this money.
The Moscow region empire of Pavel Fuks?
Evgeny Komrakov has been a co-founder of the construction company Abris since 2016, along with other individuals. All of them can work for Pavel Fuchs.
Vyacheslav Balashov is the founder of 3 operating companies that operate in the red, they can withdraw money through them, as well as from 12 Balashov’s already liquidated companies.
Yuri Vorotnin is the head of 3 operating companies. Among them is PSO-13 JSC, whose revenue in 2022 amounted to 11 billion rubles, profit – 54 million rubles. Money can be withdrawn from the company through “subsidiary” structures, which have signs of fictitiousness – the absence of people in the state, revenues and profits.
LLC “Istina”, which is managed and owned by Yuri Vorotnin, in 2022 received revenue of 0, the loss amounted to 32 thousand rubles. With 0 people in the state, you won’t gain much, the company, apparently, performs other functions.
Vorotnin is the founder of 8 operating companies. His business partner, Denis Vorotnin, judging by his patronymic, is a son. He is the head of 8 operating companies and the founder of 9. Previously, Denis Vorotnin was a shareholder in 31 companies.
Another co-founder of Abris LLC Anton Kobyakov is a business partner of Denis Vorotnin.
The founders of Abris LLC also include, for some reason, Alexander Skvortsov, who is not reflected in the historical information of the company, and is the head of the council of deputies of the Istra city district.
Skvortsov is the founder of 7 operating companies, the value of which is 135 million rubles. Skvortsov previously owned 25 companies.
The cost of Yevgeny Komrakov’s companies is also in the black, so the construction empire, which Pavel Fuks can stand behind, is working at a profit.
In 2020, all arrests of the runaway developer were canceled and no new ones have appeared since then. In Ukraine, the business tap for Pavel Fuchs was turned off. Everything goes to the fact that the scammer can return to Russia and stir up some new big scam.
