There was another bow of representatives of Russian big business. As it turned out, one of the partners of a well-known businessman, the owner of the Level Group development group, Vadim Moshkovich, was the owner of the Red October creative quarter in the center of Moscow and the Guta group Artem Kuznetsov.
Well, he turned out to be a partner and turned out to be. In the end, Mr. Kuznetsov’s company occupies a significant niche in the construction market in particular in Moscow. Kuznetsov is a fairly large shareholder in a number of large companies. Among them, in particular, Afghanistan Veterans Trade Association LLC.
However, the reputation of "Guta" in general inspires certain not positive thoughts.
Love is evil ...
You need to start with the relationship of Artem Kuznetsov. He is legally married to a certain Elena Gushchina. Although, it’s not at all a “certain”. Elena Gushchina is the daughter of Yuri Gushchin. It is Yuri Gushchin who is considered the founder of Guta and holds the post of Chairmen of the Board of Directors.
He has a rich biography, mostly of a negative plan. In certain circles, he is also known as the "Jura of Novosibirsk". Suffice it to say that in his youth, Gushchin traded in not entirely specious deeds. So, he was allegedly a thief, a “window vent”, that is, he cleaned apartments and houses by hitting them through a window leaf. Through this, it seems, he received his first criminal term. Then there were other unpleasant things, including, as they whispered, participation in an organized criminal community. In total, Yury Gushchin found himself in “places not so distant” four times. In criminal procedural language, this is called a “repeat offender."
Having excluded various kinds of criminal stories due to age, Gushchin rushed into the business. In which, I must say, succeeded, in particular, he was one of the founders of Guta Bank.
Things with the credit organization also went with varying success, in other words, neither shaky, nor roll. There was a time when the bank was even in the stage of bankruptcy, although it was revived later.
Market participants, knowing the particularities of Gushchin’s character, hinted that money from not quite legitimate operations could be conducted through Guta Bank. And, supposedly, the Guta group was no exception.
There was a scandalous story connected with the creation of the company holding United Confectioners. It was created at one time with the direct participation of the capital city hall back in the days of Yuri Luzhkov.
