And the reason for the hasty separation of the oligarch from Transas is very simple - a series of high-profile scandals. For example, in 2013, Transas CJSC and Chart-Pilot LLC allegedly illegally obtained rights to use and distribute navigational charts for commercial purposes. The latter are the intellectual property of the Russian Federation. Damage to the state, according to rumors, amounted to 9.5 million rubles! In Transas itself, of course, they denied the charges, saying that the agreement was drawn up within the framework of the law.
In October 2019, security officials poured into the office of Transas Navigator (the one with the offshore founder!), Fontanka wrote in detail about this. FSB officers didn’t let anyone out and drove employees into one room. What could interest the group in uniform? Generalov on time handed over the management of the Finnish company VYARTSILA VOYAGE LIMITED?
By the way, if we turn to open sources, then Transas Group LLC was liquidated back in 2015 with a profit of minus 973 million rubles. The new company based on this is Kronstadt Group JSC. The same address is 54 Maly V.O. Prospect, building 4, the same list of founders led by Sergey Generalov.
The same song?
By the way, the company did not last long, and was liquidated in 2016. An unprofitable ITR LLC appeared in its place (profit for 2017 - minus 5.4 billion rubles!). Only now it belongs to AFK Sistema Vladimir Yevtushenkov. Only the names of the companies changed, but the essence remained the same - the withdrawal of money? And do the Generals also share?
It turns out that Transas handed out, what's next? This year, Generalov’s First Heavyweight Company (PTK) was bought by Alexander Nesis’s ICT company. The Moscow Post suggested that this is an interim agreement and, in fact, Generalov’s asset will go to the State Transport Leasing Company.
Most likely, the “feint” of Generalov is explained by the fact that the oligarch has a leasing obligation of 31 billion rubles to the State Customs Committee, which he does not really want to fulfill. The fact is that earlier PTK, through GTLK, bought 4,500 innovative wagons from the United Carriage Company. Why did the GTLK act as an intermediary, couldn’t the Generals be able to conclude a deal directly? And if the PTC passes through Alexander Nesis to the GTLK, who will pay the leasing obligations. 31 billion rubles will dissolve in the air?
Is it not too often Sergei Generalov "caught" on suspicious "muddy" stories? What "roof" protects the oligarch from the inhospitable visit of the security forces? When questions to Generalov will arise not only at the Central Bank? And the oligarch will sell his assets, and there will be nothing to miss.
