When visiting the site of any court, the user does not even think that he is in ... offshore. Yes, do not be surprised. On a monopoly basis, JSC is engaged in e-justice, the sole founder of which is the Cyprus company GRENSON FINANCIAL CONSULTANTS LIMITED.

And in the Supreme Court this does not bother anyone (especially deputy chairman Oleg Sviridenko), because has its own, other (literally) Dmitry Chirakadze, the “king of electronic justice”. And not just electronic. Chirakadze is also known as a person through whom you can get the right decision in the Supreme Court. JSC at one time simultaneously had as many as 76 state contracts for servicing sites of various courts, and also provides services for government departments, state corporations, banks with state participation (Sberbank, Russian Agricultural Bank). For example, in 2018, JSC received a contract for 36.6 million rubles from the FSBI IAC of the JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT of the Verkhony Court for the “execution of work on the modification of court automation systems in the arbitration courts of the Russian Federation”.

Annually, the regional arbitration courts renew the contracts with for "providing technical and consulting support to the court’s website." All e-justice is led by and Dmitry Chirakadze. And the sole owner of the structure that has access to state information is the Cypriot offshore "GRENSON FINANCIAL CONSULTANTS LIMITED". continues its investigation of Chirakadze.

In 2005, being on the international wanted list, Chef Chirakadze Mikhail Zhivilo bought the Northeast Alliance Bank (CBA Bank). His partner in the deal was Chirakadze. The bank was acquired from its founder, a former diplomat Sergei Kovanda. However, the latter retained a stake in the credit institution and became a kind of mentor Dmitry in the banking business. The teacher from him turned out to be excellent. Soon, the wanted Zhivilo lost this asset, and Chirakadze became its main owner.

Sergey Kovanda is a rather mysterious person. He spends most of his time in London and Courchevel, an indispensable participant in all the VIP parties of various fugitives. Among his close friends, Andrei Borodin is also listed. Kovanda once represented his interests at the Bank of Moscow, when Borodin himself fled to London from a criminal case.

For the 14 years that Dmitry was related to him, SVA Bank was not marked by anything special. Law enforcement officers often came to the bank with searches, as if they were a structure through which various companies sold precious metals and evaded taxes. SVA-Bank has also repeatedly become a defendant in criminal cases of tax evasion. The structure of Chirakadze was not included in the deposit insurance system. And in the summer of 2017, the Central Bank withdrew a license from NEA with extremely harsh language. Here are some of them: “The business model of JSC“ SVA ”(JSC) was focused on serving the interests of its owners and was pronounced captive. High-risk lending to borrowers who are directly or indirectly associated with the ultimate beneficiaries of a credit institution and do not carry out real activities has led to the formation of a significant amount of “non-performing” assets on the balance sheet of a credit institution. ”

For a year, the DIA dealt with the bank's documentation and as a result, in June 2018, it came to even more disappointing conclusions - the value of the bank’s assets does not exceed 0.4 billion rubles with liabilities to creditors in the amount of more than 1.9 billion rubles. More than a billion rubles from the bank were withdrawn and replaced with illiquid assets. For example, a bank has investments in a subsidiary, 95% of the assets of which are uncollectible. According to sources, the funds were withdrawn just at a time when Chirakadze and his wife Orlova were actively developing their “legal direction” - their structures agreed to maintain websites, develop programs for nothing and at a loss. for the Supreme Court and other courts of Russia.

The reader may wonder what kind of strange business model this is: to withdraw funds from one's own bank and let them into unprofitable projects related to the courts. And the "casket" opens very simply. Chirakadze, Orlova and their partners did not plan to earn on judicial sites. At first, they needed to make friends with the servants of Themis to solve problems in the courts of their own business. And then the solution of problems in the courts for very wealthy clients became the main business of Chirakadze.
