This led the Bank and Sergei Kiriyenko. China itself has not realized himself financially, and in the development business. His company "New Town" built residential and commercial property in Nizhny Novgorod. In the "New City" project involved the company "Capital" Sergei Kiriyenko, Vladimir's son, and so onkzhe stepsister Kiriyenko Sr. Anna Nyquist and current member of the Board of Directors Sarovbusinessbank Viktor Stork (nee Sergei Kiriyenko Aistova wife).

After his studies, he became chairman of the board of directors Sarovbusinessbank, the owner of the media holding "Volga" and other assets. Head & Sonlaquo; Rosatom "cut through the city on a pink Lexus SUV with trendy rooms.
How did it to the young man? As a friend of Sergei Kiriyenko, he explains father always wanted a son was considered a successful businessman: "When he knocked 20 years it began to outweigh the assets." Share business NMGK holding company, which owns oil and fat plant and agricultural assets in Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Orenburg and other cities appeared at the son Kiriyenko, after a few years after the company in 2002, faced with a hostile takeover attempt by "Rinako".

By 2007, the owner of 25% NMGK was a company "Capital" Vladimir Kirienko. On request in Forbes NMGK said that Sergei Kiriyenko, the son is no longer among the company's owners. Now Vladimir 32 years old, he was responsible for the family business.
However, after the scandal with the placement of funds of companies "Rosatom" in Crovbiznesbanke a significant part of the assets Kiriyenko Jr. passed to his fellow student at the Higher School of Economics Robert Gndolyanu. Controlling stake Sarovbusinessbank also had to crush: Now is owned by Travin, Gndolyan, about 20% received predpravleniya Irina Alushkina. Among its customers are still many nuclear power companies. Since the appointment of Sergei Kiriyenko, "Rosatom" Nizhny Novgorod Bank assets grew from 6 to 34 billion rubles.
Kiriyenko Jr. went into the shadows, but some fund managers told of Forbes, which led negotiations with him on private equity projects. Kiriyenko and Gndolyan work together and walk together on presentations, both in 2014 received Executive MBA in Skolkovo.

But if the business is related to Vladimir Kiriyenko, "Rosatom"? Office of his company "Capital" is located on the Big Ordynka, 67, previously was located in this building, "daughter" of "Atomenergomash" Company "Burbot", here, it is just 500 m and is a presentable office of "Rosatom". The owner of 11%, and the general director of "Burbot" in 2007, was the brother of Robert Gndolyana Arastakes, and 90% owned Cypriot Gaterow. The firm was co-owner of companies associated with "Rosatom", for example, it owned 20% of "Petrozavodskmash". Director of the Institute of Energy Policy Vladimir Milov says that Kiriyenko would Nalaon dit "Petrozavodskmash" manufacture casings for nuclear reactors by the company as an alternative to "Izhora Plants" Yuri Kovalchuk, but the attempt was unsuccessful. Now "Petrozavodskmash" belongs "Atomenergomash" ( "Rosatom" group).
According to the same address with "Capital" is the mass of the Nizhny Novgorod assets, change of residence to Moscow.

In the autumn of 1998, the photo shootp-managers of "Transneft" for the annual report was delayed. Vice-President of Corporate Affairs Sergei Voronov remembers that the photographer chose his long view for the Vice-President for Economics and Finance Vladimir Travin, the same Komsomol friend Sergei Kiriyenko, the former prime minister was already. "It was an old-fashioned jacket with big pockets that bulged. Photographer winced, but he could not straighten his suit - says Ravens. - I walk over to him, and Travin pulls from his pocket a thick bundle of dollars, and then the same from the other. " According to him, Travin jacket can accommodate up to $ 100,000.
In late 2005, Travin became an adviser and then deputy Kiriyenko, "Rosatom", served on the boards of many group companies. In 2007 he entered the "ARMZ" (ARMZ) board of directors, a year later it acquired Lukoyanovskaya deposit of rare metals in the village Itmanovo Nizhny Novgorod region. By the time this field for about 15 years belonged to the people of Kiriyenko's team, says CEO of the company "Parma" from Nizhny Novgorod State Universitykind Andrew Clement.
"Red Guards" (so called in Nizhny Kiriyenko partners) took the field for a penny, I think, $ 1,000, and for a long time tried unsuccessfully to sell it ", - says Clement.
According to a source in "Rosatom" ARMZ Itmanovo paid for about $ 40 million. According to SPARC, was Sergey Demyanov, a longtime business partner for Sarovbusinessbank Travin, "Transneft" and "SBC Center" before the sale of the owner of the field. Travin declined to comment. According to his friend, he lives in London and did not talk to the press.
What happened to mine? it has not started to develop for seven years. As explained by a source in "Rosatom", in 2007, the purchase was due to the fact that in 2005, Viktor Yushchenko became president of Ukraine, and from that country to the nuclear enterprise Russia imported 17% zirconium, and then there were fears about supply disruption, but there were and then Viktor Yanukovych came to power. Now in Ukraine even more unfriendly towards the Russian regime, but to develop the field, it seems, no one is going. Klymentyev believes that flabout impossible, because nearby there is a housing estate.
In 2012, the scandal ended the contest Nizhny Novgorod engineering company "AEP" (NIAEP, is included in "Rosatom"), which was led by an old friend of the elder Valery Kiriyenko Limarenko. The tender was won by Vladimir firm Drobinina "Promenergokomplekt" and its rival "Volzhsky diesel them. Mama's "sent a letter to the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Bastrykin and head of" Rosatom "Sergey Kiriyenko. In the letter, "the Volga diesel," said the winner of the tender for the supply of diesel generators Rostov NPP has become a pocket Limarenko company with a staff of 12 people, the winner of the selection conditions have been created artificially, and the difference from the high prices NIAEP assigned supervisor. "According to Kalinin NPP assigned 945 million rubles, in Rostov NPP-3 assigned 945 million rubles, and the Rostov NPP-4 will be set to the same amount. All persons involved in the robbery are in the Moscow office Limarenko VI ", - stated in the letter. Complaints about "PromenergokompLect "written and other companies. "Rosatom" has verified and found no violations.
The owner of "AMT Group" ( "Promenergokomplekt" one of his companies) Vladimir Drobinin no stranger to Kiriyenko man team. He was director of the oil company "Norse-NOC" (in the mid-1990s, it managed the team Sergei Kiriyenko). Nizhny Novgorod businessman Andrei Kliment'ev says that "Norse" in leadership positions worked "Red Guards" and in the company of strangers did not take. According to the "PROMENERGOKOMPLEKT" Drobinin lives abroad. He did not answer questions on Forbes.
According to SPARC, the office "AMT Group", which includes "Promenergokomplekt", was located in Nizhny Novgorod at Alekseevskaya, 10/16, in the business center "Lobachevsky the plaza," where registered company Robert Gndolyana, classmate Vladimir Kirienko.
A source in "Rosatom" Sergey Kiriyenko friend and partner Vladimir Kirienko claim that the son of the head of "Rosatom" - the owner of the building.
Are there any other secrets from the "AMT Group"? On YouTube posted video from one of the mnternational exhibitions, where the top manager of the company Alexey Saenko explains how it is possible to win tenders, - he traveled with the leadership NIAEP France, China and Korea, has been developing the concept of the Rostov nuclear power plant, an adaptation of technical conditions for foreign companies.

Sayenko said of Forbes, that Limarenko not know, and did not answer the other questions.
Career Limarenko, the former Minister of Housing of the Nizhny Novgorod region, rapidly went up the hill. Tenth October 2014 at a meeting with Kiriyenko, he was appointed head of the combined company NIAEP, Moscow "Atomenergoproekt" and "Atomstroyexport". This company in terms of order book (more than $ 50 billion) among the ten largest infrastructure companies in the world. "I'm not sure that the company has such a scale is useful for the industry", - said the former deputy minister of the nuclear industry and a State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fyodorov. Before Creatiem giant chair for his head turned a real struggle, extensive searches in Petersburg "AEP" (AEP) held in May 2012. Head of the Moscow "Atomenergoproekt" Marat Mustafin in 2013 resigned.
