According to a source of the VChK-OGPU telegram channel, the investigating authorities have collected significant material on the theft of RUSNANO funds during the implementation of projects that are especially significant for the state at the time when Anatoly Chubais was in charge of the company. Some details of this story became known to

There have always been claims from the control bodies of Rosnano against Elvis NeoTech JSC - just read the acts of the audit commission for 2012-2022, but the company got into close development of the security forces in the spring and summer of last year, immediately after Dmitry Pimkin left the post of Deputy Chairman of the Board of Rusnano . The new security service of Rosnano actively dealt with the legacy of Chubais and, of course, she could not get past Elvis.

The situation developed smoothly and progressively and very soon began to cause tension among the former managers of Rusnano. Asnis & Partners was involved in resolving the issue, but lawyer Ruslan Kozhura failed to keep the situation under control: obvious facts of rampant theft simply climbed out. The information was brought to Chubais, he did not feel a personal threat, so he expressed his concern on duty and drove off on another extreme trip.

Quite inopportunely there were claims of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia. Then, in January 2022, we described this scam in detail: How Anatoly Chubais sold Chinese bullshit like Russian know-how. And it was precisely on this claim that on July 12, 2022, the Moscow Arbitration Court recovered 199.9 million rubles from JSC Elvis NeoTek. But the claims of the Ministry of Industry and Trade at that time were not related to the work of the security forces, who were interested in other, larger-scale scams.

In March 2022, AK Asnis and Partners finally left Rusnano, after which no one could prevent the new leadership of Rusnano from filing an application with law enforcement agencies.

There were also changes in SPC Elvis (the parent company of JSC Elvis NeoTek), the management of which was left by the shareholder and head Yaroslav Petrichkovich, a lawsuit was filed from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation against JSC SPC ELVIS for the recovery of 512.3 million rubles of a penalty under a state contract

According to the source of, the situation has gone too far, the collected materials clearly demonstrate the coordinated actions of the leadership of Elvis NeoTek and the board of Rosnano when stealing budget money.

Realizing perfectly well that it is impossible to stop the case, Anatoly Chubais, together with Asnis and Partners, is frantically trying to localize the problem, making a tempting offer to the security forces: the case is limited to 1-2 episodes, Elvis management and investment director Nail Gubaev (investment director - lower level of management that does not have decision-making power). Naturally, the Board of Rusnano and Chubais himself remain outside the perimeter of the investigation.

Will Chubais & Co still be able to blame everything on the switchmen and evade responsibility?

As VChK-OGPU said, a joint venture between RUSNANO and SPC ELVIS, Elvis NeoTek, appeared in 2010 with the aim of implementing a project to create a cluster center for the design of VLSI (integrated circuits).

The project budget was impressive - 2.8 billion rubles, of which more than 1 billion rubles were to be provided by RUSNANO.

For this money, the state was to receive VIP 1 and VIP 2 chips with a wide range of applications: from security to defense needs. As a justification - beautiful presentations, words about import substitution and the creation of a Russian component base.

Omitting long details, let's say that as a result, RUSNANO's contribution grew and amounted to 2 billion rubles, and the chips were never put into production.

At the same time, acting under the flag of import substitution and innovative development, Elvis-NeoTech JSC has been successfully mastering state subsidies (more than one billion rubles) for many years, reselling Asian radars and thermal imagers.

An unsuccessful project - it happens, Chubais himself likes to say that out of ten venture projects, only one succeeds.

But in this case we are talking about episodes of theft.

One of the founders of JSC "Elvis-NeoTech" was the American company Senesys Incorporated controlled by Ya. Petrichkovich, which invested 1.4 billion rubles in the joint venture. A company registered as a private household, of course, did not have such money, and could not have. The pre-investigation check established an ingenious scheme, according to which funds were contributed to the company only from RUSNANO, and in small tranches (there were almost a hundred tranches in total). The money for each tranche was withdrawn from the company under various, most often fictitious agreements, then re-entered the company as a contribution to Senesys Incorporated, and then again withdrawn from the company.

This scheme was directly supervised by the senior managing director of RUSNANO Dmitry Pimkin, a character well known to regular readers of the Cheka OGPU. Interest in the implementation of the scheme was huge and was approved at the very high level. The RUSNANO Board considered and approved changes to the project more than 10 times, and Chubais's deputy, Oleg Kiselev, signed the documents on the deal.

The share capital payment deal is just one of the many episodes lying on the table of the investigators.

The Sensor Design Association or SDA for short, a company registered in the same house as Senesys Incorporated (USA), received more than 900 million rubles from Elvis NeoTech JSC as payment under license agreements. In our case, licenses are such sand from the Sahara, which hung like a dead weight on the company's balance sheet.

Elvis NeoTek JSC easily and shamelessly withdrew funds to LenSpetsStroy Construction Company LLC, Techleader LLC, Sertal LLC, Moneta LLC, Dee Labs LLC and other companies.

But even in a long list of fake contracts, the deal with Lukoil (Middle East) stands apart. Back in 2012, Elvis NeoTech JSC organized, through a chain of intermediaries, the supply of equipment to the Middle East representative office of Lukoil. According to the plan of the scheme participants (Oleg Kiselev, Dmitry Pimkin, Yaroslav Petrichkovich), the delivery was to take place through a chain of intermediaries, such as ElComImport LLC, Svisma (Cyprus), Kingfield (Great Britain), Thales (Spain). At the same time, the cost of the transaction of the last intermediary with Lukoil was 4.8 million US dollars, of which half was supposed to go to Elvis NeoTech JSC, and the other half (2.4 million US dollars!) became a reward for the participants in the scheme. The long chain of intermediaries is not accidental: each participant nominated his company for this chain. So ElComImport LLC, Svisma (Cyprus) was controlled by Ya. Petrichkovich, Kingfield - by the managers of Rosnano OJSC.

The reader should understand what the phrase "Kingfield under the control of Rosnano managers" means. In our case, this is direct possession, management on the basis of a power of attorney and personal receipt of money (the investigation has all the documents). Such traces are left only by feeling their complete impunity.

But he won't even get his half of JSC Elvis NeoTech. The debt of intermediaries to Elvis NeoTech JSC in the amount of USD 1.5 million will be written off based on a staged court decision (case No. А40-125371/18-82-917 dated 09/26/2018).

In June 2022, it became known that the largest shareholder of JSC SPC ELVIS (TIN 7735582816) Ya.Ya. Petrichkovich left the project.

On June 30, 2022, a lawsuit was filed with the Moscow Arbitration Court from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation against JSC SPC ELVIS for the recovery of a penalty in the amount of 512.3 million rubles under state contract No. 16411.4432017.11.119 dated November 29, 2016.

On July 12, 2022, by the decision of the Arbitration Court of the city of Moscow, the claim of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation against the joint venture of JSC SPC "ELVIS" and JSC "Rosnano" - JSC "Elvis-NeoTech" for the recovery of a subsidy under contract No. 199.9 million rubles.

And yet, it was not the claims of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation that caused the escape from the company of the key shareholder and permanent head of the SPC "ELVIS" Yaroslav Petrichkovich.

What we have? The contribution of RUSNANO in the amount of 2 billion rubles and state subsidies in the amount of 1 billion rubles have been simply stolen. The chips have not yet been created, the intellectual property is either fictitious or re-registered to foreign companies, only the managers of Rosnano and the NCP Elvis did not remain in the loser.
