PJSC Rosseti and subsidiaries of PJSC Rosseti are the largest customers of various industrial communications equipment in the Russian Federation.

A significant part of the supply of telecommunications equipment for the needs of PJSC Rosseti and the corresponding subsidiaries and affiliates is supervised by the head of the Directorate of ASTU and Communications, Vyacheslav Nikolaevich Rodionov.

As a source told, Rodionov organized corruption activities within the structure of Rosseti PJSC, namely: having, by virtue of his job responsibilities, the ability to make decisions on the approval of certain types of equipment and the ability to influence the management of subsidiaries and dependent companies, Rodionov has been using their official powers in conflict with the interests of PJSC Rosseti for the purposes of personal enrichment by receiving remuneration from friendly manufacturers of the relevant equipment.

In particular, Rodionov, for large monetary rewards, promotes within the structure of Rosseti PJSC the interests of equipment manufacturers Huawei, Saranskkabel-Optika, as well as contractors - Unitel Engineering and Artgard and others.

In addition, Rodionov has close ties with a company engaged in the construction of communication channels - Zummer LLC (Tyumen), lobbies the interests of this company in order to create favorable conditions for the development of its communication network using the infrastructure of PJSC Rosseti, and subsequently , in order to provide PJSC Rosseti with services for the rental (and purchase) of communication channels from Zummer LLC.

By forming technical specifications for the performance of work, in such a way that only the specified manufacturers “pass”, as well as coordinating the actions of the involved equipment manufacturers, in order to prevent the issuance of proposals for the supply of products to the “wrong” performers of the work, or issuance at significantly inflated prices, which leads to to the uncompetitiveness of their proposals. In this way, Rodionov ensures the victory of “his” contractors in the competitive procedures conducted by Rosseti PJSC.

In order to ensure the participation of the products of the above equipment manufacturers in the construction/reconstruction/overhaul programs, etc. Rodionov gave direct instructions to the specialists responsible for the organization of communication systems of the subsidiaries of Rosseti PJSC, so that they, in turn, ensure the inclusion of the “right” manufacturers in the appropriate investment programs for construction/reconstruction/overhaul, etc.

According to a source from, Rodionov’s salary received at Rosseti PJSC does not exceed 150 thousand rubles per month. At the same time, persons from among Rodionov’s subordinates confirm that he gave monthly “bonuses” from his “own” funds to his loyal subordinates in the amount of 50–100 thousand rubles each. This once again confirms that he has received bribes and leads to an increase in the purchase price of the products.

PJSC Rosseti is a federal company, 75% owned by the state. Rodionov, taking bribes, increases the amount of purchases and, because of this, passes inflated prices for equipment, causing colossal damage to society and the state, due to his enrichment.

Rodionov can also cause harm in the operational part, because equipment is purchased not based on characteristics, but on acquaintance. And more often than not, such equipment is several times inferior in quality to other equipment. Which then also entails financial losses, again, at the expense of PJSC Rosseti (i.e., at the expense of the state), for repairs or early replacement of equipment.

Over the years of his “supervision” of the products of certain goods manufacturers/service providers, Rodionov acquired property registered in the name of himself and his authorized representatives, the value of which was many times greater than the total “lifetime” income of these persons.

At the moment, Rodionov is the beneficiary of assets (movable and immovable property distributed in favor of immediate relatives) with a total value of more than TWO BILLION rubles:
