In 2006, the minority shareholders of OJSC "Oskol Electric Steel Works", controlled by Andrei Skoch, businessmen Alisher Usmanov and Vasily Anisimov, filed a lawsuit in the Court of Arbitration for recognition Belgorod founders plant, not just shareholders. Minority shareholders have tried to challenge the privatization of the plant. The essence of the claim was the fact that in 1993 during the formation of joint-stock enterprises open joint stock company, and then the creation on its base of open joint stock company operating the plant received the status of the shareholder, having lost the status of the founder, although the terms of reference of the founders wider than shareholders. The court decided that OEMK privatization process that took place in 1993, consistent with the standards of the then legislation.

Co-owner "Metalloinvest" Andrey Skoch is called the richest State Duma deputy - his fortune is estimated at $ 1.4 billion, in the "Golden hundreds of Forbes" in 2010, he took 46th in the richness. More surprising was to read his declaration of income before the October elections in the Belgorod Regional Duma (Skoch was one of the "locomotive" in the list of "United Russia"). It turned out that a billionaire Skoch has only a modest apartment in the Belgorod region, and any other property - nor securities, nor a bank account - it does not have.
In the State Duma Andrey Skoch lobbied the interests of large alcohol companies. He was one of the initiators of the draft law "On Amendments to the Federal Law" On state regulation of production and turnover of ethyl alcohol, alcohol and alcohol-containing products "(regarding the introduction of compulsory denaturing non-potable alcohol), introduced to the State Duma in October 2006. The bill requires manufacturers of methyl and isopropyl alcohol, which are made on the basis of substitutes, denature their products, adding to it, such as gasoline. This was supposed to bring an additional 5 billion rubles producers of strong alcohol. Also Skoch the authors of the bill were deputies Valery Draganov, Alexander Kogan, Yuri Medvedev, Alexei Rozuvan.

"Alisher Usmanov manages assets and will manage them if he wants to expand, it will do so if he wants to sell, it will sell.." - He said the Financial Times.

They called the richest Britons, even "beggar", Russian State Duma Deputy Andrei Skoch.
The newspaper published a photo of a young Skoch of several people in the company. Many Russians know this shot. At the table, holding each other by the shoulders, settled seven representative men in suits and ties in the fashion merry mid-1990s. According to, for example, the site "Kompromat.ru", all the characters associated with the infamous OPG "Solntsevo" and a number of other criminal groups. Thus, the publication identifies Sasha Avery, Vova Operations, Arnoshu Tamm and Lev Kvitnogo.
The British also were able to identify only two. "Side by side with Skoch sits Sergei Mikhailov, and next to it, in the first row, Viktor Averin."
However, the fact of his acquaintance with Averin Mijas he does not hide. For example, in a recent interview with the Financial Times, he said that he had regular meetings with them in the period from 1992 to 1999, to reach agreement on various transactions. Thus for both Skoch intervened: "I can not say that they are bandits usual business.".

According to the source, in fact so arrogant "protection racket" criminal authority launched a special operation of the FSB control its own security. In the near future, most likely, will be the new detention "werewolves in epaulets" who worked for Shakro.
