As Rucriminal.info found out, the family of the governor of the Lipetsk region Igor Artamonov makes money from local medicine. For this purpose, leasing schemes and the firms of the wife of the head of the region are used, which are unprofitable for medical institutions. The algorithm is as follows: Igor Georgievich Artamonov finds an excuse to replace the head doctor of the hospital. Appoints a new person. Soon he receives an offer he cannot refuse. This can be easily seen from the situation at the Lipetsk Regional Clinical Hospital. In April 2020, the chief physician was fired for a far-fetched reason. Lyubov Viktorovna Agafonova – in the hospital, two doctors became infected with the new COVID-19 virus from a patient. Gleb Igorevich Gutevich became the new head physician. Having settled into the chair, he enters into five leasing contracts with the Nizhny Novgorod company LK A5 in the amount of 67,288,623.12 rubles. The bondage of the hospital will end only in 2025. The deals were concluded between November 2021 and January 2022. Why this particular time? time?The Lipetsk governor has already finished disguising his assets.
From Lipetsk the tracks lead to Tyumen. It was here that Igor Georgievich and his wife worked at one time – Natalya Vyacheslavovna.
On September 18, 2007, the Artamonov family business was registered in this city – LLC Leasing Company ARTFIN-TYUMEN (TIN 7202167397).
Why is “Art” at the beginning of the company name clear to everyone? Its owner was officially listed as Stavropol Rental Center LLC (TIN 2635089728). She owned it Artamonova Natalya Vyacheslavovna. Later, this Stavropol company passed to the Artamonovs’ son – Anton Igorevich. As of December 31, 2022, the total assets of this organization with one (!) employee and sluggish current activities amounted to 101 million rubles.
After Artamonov left for the civil service, manipulations began with the founding of his companies. The family is trying to hide from the general public that they are affiliated with LK A5 LLC and are transferring this company to nominal owners. Since its founding, the founders of this company in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities have in turn listed Stavropol Rental Center LLC, owned by the Artamonovs, Kabirov Andrey Yurievich, Glushko Konstantin Viktorovich and the son of the Artamonovs – Anton Igorevich.
After he became the owner of ARTFIN-TYUMEN LLC, the legal address was moved from Tyumen to Nizhny Novgorod. On 02/09/2021 the company was renamed LLC “LK “A5”. As we remember, the Artamonovs are proud of their surname. The letter “A” remains in the name. The company’s email address is still the same as that of its Tyumen predecessor – [email protected]
In May 2021 Artur Borisovich Davydov was appointed director. And in July 2021, LC “A5” was rewritten to Akishina Pavel Timofeevich born in 1994.
Both are natives of Stavropol. Just like the Artamonov family. All former and new owners of the company have been assigned a TIN in the Stavropol Territory.
The exception is Panchenko Sergey Semenovih. He became a founder quite recently – on September 27 of this year. After all, Artamonov is nervous and continues to hide the ends.
But employees of LK A5 LLC claim that the ultimate beneficiaries of this company throughout its existence are the Artamonov spouses. Final management decisions are made only by Natalya Vyacheslavovna.
In November 2021-January 2022, the Nizhny Novgorod leasing company “A5”, which is formally unrelated to the family of the head of the Lipetsk region, concludes 5 leasing contracts with the state healthcare institution “Lipetsk Regional Clinical Hospital” in the amount of 67,288,623.12 rubles.
And in four out of five cases, LC A5 was the only procurement participant. The hospital actually bought a variety of equipment in installments from the Artamonov family. The scheme is unprofitable for the hospital and the budget, but very pleasant for the governor’s wallet.
The Nizhny Novgorod company bought, for example, tomographs. After concluding the leasing agreement, the equipment was transferred to the Lipetsk Regional Hospital. Interest on installments increased the cost of this equipment by 30-40%. The difference falls into the pocket of the man who tells reporters that his family does not have a business in Lipetsk.
At the same time, the regional budget and the territorial Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund could easily provide money for the direct purchase of medical equipment. It would have cost much less. Even now, the budget carryover balances of the Lipetsk region exceed 14 billion rubles. This money is in commercial banks. And in 2021, this “straw” reached 35 billion. Money appeared in the regional budget due to unprecedented demand for steel in the world. NLMK received excess profits, which turned the budget of the Lipetsk region, according to the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation (*country sponsor of terrorism), into the most surplus among the regional ones.
The Lipetsk Medical Insurance Fund did not complain about the shortage of funds either. Due to the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, they didn’t know where to spend half a billion rubles. During this difficult time, medical institutions have reduced the number of services. Lipetsk officials were racking their brains about how to transfer money to hospitals and clinics. Non-leasing purchases of equipment for the Leningrad Clinical Hospital would be profitable. But for some reason the regional health department agreed to expensive schemes with the participation of the governor’s company. And I got caught on the pre-requests. In 2021, the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case. One and a half thousand recipients of fictitious medical services were interviewed. The case is under the control of Alexander Bastrykin. The deputy head of the region and the regional minister of health resigned.
And at this time, the Lipetsk Regional Clinical Hospital pays and pays to the company, whose beneficiary is the Artamonov family.
This clan has many businesses. Some LLCs act as founders of others. The German apartment of Natalya Vyacheslavovna Artamonova is also hidden in this web. In 2021, the CEC documents indicated its cost – 1 million 377,500 euros. In 2022 I.G. Artamonov said that he got rid of housing in Europe. In fact, the property was transferred to one of the front companies of the family holding. The Artamonovs have a lot of LLCs. As well as hospitals in the Lipetsk region. In April 2022, the successful son of the governor became the owner of a mansion in Sochi. A house on the first line by the Black Sea is valued at half a billion rubles.
