Moscow-post, 05.08.2015


According to a number of information sites, Arzhanov actually carried out the seizure of "small business union" - "SUPPORT of Russia". First Arzhanov secured the full loyalty of Alexander Kalinin - "SUPPORT of Russia" member by giving him a loan in the amount of 11 million rubles for a period of 10 years..

The main direction of agricultural expansion Dmitry Arzhanova companies - grain market. Getting to the implementation of its plan, the businessman bought some rice-growing enterprises in the Krasnodar Territory. As a result, the only serious competitor Arzhanova rice market became the company "Razguliay". Entrepreneur proposed "carousing" to redeem the biggest asset of the holding - Slavic elevator. Founder and co-owner of "Razgulyai" Igor Potapenko flatly refused the deal. Then, in the course went Arzhanova specific connections.

First, for "processing" intractable rival Arzhanova took the chief "Razguliay" security company Igor Purin. In the Russian media published a series of articles against Potapenko. Following this, the game has entered a close friend Arzhanova Evgeny Pavlov - Head of the "T" GUBEPiPK Interior Ministry. One of the minority shareholders' Razguliay "- VEB, Vnesheconombank Director of the Department of Natural Resources Ilgiz Valitov wrote to the founder and president of the company Igor Potapenko statement to the Office of the" T "GUBEPiPK Interior Ministry, accusing him of stealing twenty billion rubles.

April 28, 2014 the staff of the Office of the "T" GUBEPiPK Evgeny Pavlov Igor Potapenko put on handcuffs. As a result, many of the "Razgulyai" interest Dmitry Arzhanova assets transferred under the control of "AFG National", which has become the main rice producer in Russia. After that, the company Arzhanova organized the export of rice and buckwheat in the western regions of Ukraine, thereby causing a rise in the domestic Russian market.

The day before the birthday Arzhanov, according to Huffington Post Italy, took four days the whole five-star hotel Capri Palace, a public beach, which is closed to the locals, several restaurants and street cafes, and near the shore made a mini-regatta. This ostentation led to confusion islanders. However, an appeal to the police was caused by others - loud music: she began to rattle from 9am that some violated the measured life of Capri.

In the local press, as well as in the video, posted on the website of the newspaper il Sole 24 Ore (according to the newspaper Arzhanov on video in the blue shirt) is the total cost of the banquet - about € 2 million.

For the entertainment of its guests Arzhanov written out from the mainland Italian musicians and ordered trips to Pompeii and Herculaneum - the ruins of ancient Roman cities destroyed during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 BC. The Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano writes in its investigation that the bill for the hotel "Capri Palace" was paid by bank transfer from South Africa and in cash. The cheapest room at this hotel costs € 480 per day, and the presidential suite - € 7700., 15/08/2014


It would be foolish if Arzhanov Dmitry planned to operate in this mode for a long time. He is no fool and knows that sooner or later it's over, and we must be prepared to leave the country to retire to a more comfortable location. So today Arzhanova aim is to maximize the accumulation of funds abroad, the transfer of money first, then family and then himself.

To realize the goals of the HPS-Energo was established long time withdrawal of borders of our country.

As described on the website of the company: PJSC GK "TNS energy" (owned by Dmitry Arzhanova) - one of the largest independent power companies in Russia. Power sales companies within the structure of "TNS energy", provide electricity to more than 17 million people, ie More than 10% of Russia's population.

Power sales companies - these are companies that came up with another Chubais, they do not produce anything and have nothing, it's resellers. Any assets the company does not have, but passes through a huge cash flow. And the content of these companies is fully at our expense.

The growth of tariffs for companies CC "TNS energy" over the past three years, with 5 billion. Rub. for all companies to 13 billion. rubles. (260% growth):

- In the Republic of Mari El - 581%

- In the Nizhny Novgorod region - 404%

- In the Tula region - 455%

- In the Yaroslavl region - 271%

- In the Voronezh region - 241%

- In the Krasnodar Territory - 247%

- In the Rostov region - 196%

- In the Republic of Karelia - 199%

These percentages are not merely interest, it is a minimum of 6-7 billion rubles, which are removed from the population annually Egorov pockets and put in his pocket and his friend Arzhanova businessman. This is while the government has for all of us said that electricity tariffs will not increase above inflation. For many people, the payment of electricity - is a significant line in the family budget, especially if we are not talking about the inhabitants of the capital, and about ordinary people living in the Rostov, Voronezh and other regions.

Cash is usually transmitted from Arzhanova hands or the hands of his beloved. Here is an example of discussion once Yegorov payments in which she specifies in Arzhanova in which one currency transfer means: "Where can I take on Egorova? In rubles? Or have you got there is anyone there? "(Message of October 2011)., 16/02/2015


Dmitry Arzhanov due to windfall actively engaged in diversion of retail companies in the non-core activities. It gives loans AFG Natsnional (a major supplier of rice and buckwheat) - totaling 5.5 billion rubles.. and financing the construction of oil refinery in Vietnam. The fact that for 2014. 33 million. Dollars (1 billion. Rub.). In the 2014 plan. - $ 44 million (2.7 billion rubles.).... That is, consumers must pay the whim of the General Director of TIS-energy. As he said himself in an interview with Forbes Arzhanov about the construction project in Vietnam: "... I was brought into the bay, and it's so nice - you walk along the white sand along the sea and the sand like whistles. Proguka over the decision to move the plant to another location, and in the bay to create a resort. "

He "deduced" substantial amount of money from OAO "Nizhny Novgorod Retail Company", which at that time turned out to be the CEO. When the shareholders of TNS-energy, part of which is JSC "Nizhny Novgorod Retail Company", became aware of this, Arzhanov quickly explained that he did it all on the orders of the General Director of the management company Alexander Zaprudnova and in its interests. The shareholders did not understand, they dismissed the current CEO and put in its place Arzhanova.

Around the same time, Dmitry Arzhanov acquainted with the Ministry of Internal Affairs officer for the Nizhny Novgorod Region Yevgeny Pavlov. A few years later Pavlov happen stormy career, he will be the head of the Office of the "T" GUBEPiPK Russian Interior Ministry (Office of "T" - is the fuel and energy complex) and move to Moscow, and then play a significant role in the formation of Dmitry Arzhanova as a businessman at the federal level .

The KremlNews, 11.05.2015


It should be noted that the head of the administration of Nizhny Novgorod, Oleg Kondrashov, too, is a typical example of "arzhanovskoy corruption." After all, being a successor Arzhanova to the position of General Director of JSC "Nizhny Novgorod Retail Company", Kondrashov later became head of the Nizhny Novgorod administration. It is believed that while in office, Nizhny Novgorod city manager also lobbied the interests of "TNS-energy."

The documents and facts, 30/07/2015


But in September 2015 the governor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region Valery Shantsev signed a 7.4 billion contract with JSC "National AFG NN" Dmitry Arzhanova.

The parties are going to create an investment project for growing vegetables on an area of 10 thousand. Ha. The products will be produced in Shatkovsky and Dalnekonstantinovsky District area. For these purposes in the planned release of more than 7 billion rubles for 3 years, including - budget subsidies.

In other words, agricultural business Dmitry Arzhanova gets quite considerable "recharge" from the treasury of the Nizhny Novgorod region. This again allows the owner to suspect "AFG National" and the governor of Nizhny Novgorod in "corrupt relationship".

Moscow Post, 12.05.2016


In expert circles there is a perception that this is Arzhanov "Connect" Manual Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Energy for the attack on "Energostream", and as a result the holding "razderbanit" Arzhanova partners - Shandalovy whose people have made "finishing moves" "Energostrima".

According to experts, the full chain of raiders who attacked the "Energostream" is as follows. Zoe "funerals" Galeeva and Artem "The Mole" were the actual perpetrators of this capture. Shandalovy are the main customers. In fact, their partner may be called Arzhanova that "chop off" his lucrative "pieces" from the "Energostrima".

Officials from the Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Internal Affairs staff that participated in the attack on the "Energostream" can be considered "administrative" and "power", "roofs" Raiders.

The documents and facts, 05/06/2016


From reliable sources it became known that the owner of the "National AFG" Dmitry Arzhanov at a closed meeting ordered sharply reduce the supply of food to the Russian domestic market in order to achieve an artificial shortage and rising prices.

Exports in this case on the contrary, he ordered increased. To sell domestic buckwheat, options a bit - in Western Europe, this cereal is not very popular and does not represent America what it is. It remains only one option - war-torn Ukraine! Russian suppliers fronted agents Kolomoisky, refused to supply food for murderers and executioners. Most - but not Arzhanov.

The thing is that the owner Arzhanov and Kolomoisky - have given and good friends! Introduced their official partner Arzhanova by TNS-Energo, a native of Kharkov, Alexander I. Rubanov, who, like Kolomoisky, is a prominent figure in the Jewish community of Ukraine. So for Arzhanova Ukraine - the country is not a new trend, and Kolomoisky - a longtime partner.

In order to hide the treacherous scheme of supply of enemy armed forces, Arzhanov operates as follows:

  1. "AFG National" load cereals and other products to supply the Ukrainian army on ships in the port of Novorossiysk. For all the documents indicated by the destination country Turkey. Why customs not a natural question arises, "Why Turks buckwheat" - a separate issue.
  2. After the clearance of ships out at sea, but they do not go to the south to Turkey and to the north - in the Ukrainian port of Berdyansk on the Sea of ​​Azov. Why not react the Russian border guards - also a separate issue. Corruption, unfortunately, has reached and there.
  3. Court returned to Novorossiisk for the new consignment.

According to Forbes, even without the Vietnamese projects Arzhanova assets can cost about $ 800 million, and it claims to be on the list of Russia's richest businessmen. "I would not want to get into this list. We sell electricity to people, and will that "cashing in" on them. But maybe, if the story of Vietnam will develop, this is my capital legalize "- grins Arzhanov.

Forbes, 03.06.2014


However, "TNS energy" is known not only in that it "squeezes money from the population." Recently Arzhanov seriously when he fought on the Russian "defense industry".

This is an attack on Arzhanova sole electricity supplier for the needs of the Defense Ministry - JSC "Oboronenergosbyt" (defined as such order of the Government of the Russian Federation №78-p dated February 2, 2010).

The thing is that the company "TNS Energy Rostov-on-Don" (included in the "Energy TNS") filed a lawsuit on bankruptcy "Oboronenergosbyta".

At the end of November 2015 it became known about the attempts to limit the power supply of Power military facilities in the Far East.

Some analysts already saw it as an attempt to undermine the Russian Arzhanova defenses., 28/11/2015
