According to evil tongues, the allegedly unofficial beneficiary of MaximaTelecom is Maxim Liksutov. In 2018, Estonian citizen Urmo Wallner became the new owner of the company - as if Liksutova's old acquaintances.
It was possible to find out the full structure of owners only thanks to the annual report of KIT Finance Capital, which said that in 2014 MaximaTelecom took a loan from the IT concern Sitronics. The security was provided by 24% of the operator's shares, and the Cyprus offshore Geromell Trade Ltd. acted as the pledger.
It was registered in 2013, after which it bought 100% of the shares of Maxima. At the same time, the Moscow Metro State Unitary Enterprise held a tender to launch a free Wi-Fi network. As you might guess, MaximaTelecom was the only participant.
In 2015, 33.4% of Geromell Trade was received by the offshore Malver Holdings, which was then owned by Alexei Krivoruchko. Then he was the general director of the Kalashnikov concern and the general director of the capital's Aeroexpress LLC.
All this - not to mention the fact that MaximaTelecom is officially tied to offshore companies and has government contracts worth almost 4 billion rubles. It is not surprising that 2.3 billion of this amount falls on contracts with the Moscow Department of Information Technologies.
But all these are trifles in comparison with how much can be sawed on topical infrastructure projects in Moscow and the Moscow region. The most significant of them, of course, is the construction of the surface metro, which has already been mentioned in the context of Makhmudov, as well as the Central Ring Road.
Are there more problems and "cutting"?
Recently it became known that the construction of the long-suffering Central Ring Road will require another 15 billion rubles from the budget. The total cost of the project has already grown to the space level of 316 billion rubles. At the same time, the first and fifth complexes are only 49% and 61% ready, respectively. Although the road was supposed to be completed back in 2018.
As the evil tongues say, they cut there so that only chips fly. And maybe in the literal sense. As follows from the report of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation, recently, at the construction site of the Central Ring Road, green spaces worth 138 million rubles have failed. It's not even building materials anymore ...
While city hall contractors can steal billions from huge construction sites, a complete mess continues in the capital's transport industry. Liksutov cannot cope with it. Apparently, he is busy with completely different things.
Last November, the launch of the second high-speed diameter of ground meters in Moscow ended in a big scandal. Hustle, problems with tickets and service. In the end, while they were figuring out, Sergei Sobyanin ordered to make travel on these trains for a short time free. The project was supervised by Maxim Liksutov.
Liksutova is also remembered for the story of the stuck electric buses, 30 of which were supposed to appear in the capital by September 1, 2018. By this time, there were only nine, which caused problems in the transport services of the townspeople.
Besides, God knows what is going on in the waterways of Moscow. Rumor has it that Liksutov simply does not want to deal with the river mafia, and maybe he receives gratitude from them for his lack of interest in the field of water transport.
In 2018, due to the likely lack of regulation in the industry, a collision of two motor ships occurred near the Luzhnetskaya embankment. Then several people were injured, the captain was drunk. No one at the mayor's office answered for this. The website of the TVC channel reports.
Considering all this, Maxim Liksutov has long been sitting in his post for a long time. But it hardly worries him. According to rumors, he continues to wear Winston Opus Series watches for 255 thousand dollars and coordinate new projects with interested parties from large business close to him. The cost of these watches alone, not to mention apartments, houses, land plots, luxury cars and other things, suggests that his income statement is an outright "linden".
