With a grand scale and nostalgia for the dashing gangster 90s, the Builder's Day was celebrated at PJSC Rosseti Lenenergo. According to the telegram channel VChK-OGPU, this holiday was paid for from the funds of Rosseti, which all the time ask for money from the Government of the Russian Federation, because all the time there is not enough for the main activity. But, as it turns out, Rosseti and their general director Andrei Ryumin (previously headed by Lenenergo) have eternal values, such as the expensive booze introduced for employees with a masquerade well understood by Ryumin and his subordinates.
The holiday coincided with the fact that the FAS began to consider the case of a large cartel conspiracy, behind which is visible the "shadow" of the general director of "Rosseti" Andrey Ryumin. At the same time, the materials of the antimonopoly service mention the existing two criminal cases concerning both Rosseti themselves and Lenenergo, which was previously headed by Ryumin. Of particular interest is Ryumin's favorite, EnergoProjectEngineering, headed by Zhanna Bulavchik, the owner of a luxurious Mercedes GLE with license plate B287EK147. She got 140 contracts worth several billion, which are carried out with large delays and poor-quality work.
Rucriminal.info gives testimony in criminal cases, which are present in the materials of the FAS, about how the theft of Lenenergo funds went under Ryumin. Witnesses tell how, on behalf of Rbmin, all the money and contracts of Lenenergo were divided between their firms.
